Dodo Osé

Bio, from the Ashop website: “Dodo Ose is a Montreal based graffiti and fine artist specialized in highly rendered surreal portraiture. Born in Lyon, Dodo was initiated to art at an early age, spending countless hours admiring the rich architecture of his native city. He spent his teenage years in the south of France, where he developed his artistic knowledge and taste for graffiti. He studied Fine Arts in Cannes and presented his first shows in galleries. In need of a challenge, he decided to pursue his career in Canada in 2010. In Montreal, he got carried away by the city’s creative atmosphere and found a real family within the Ashop and K6A crews, two multidisciplinary collectives. Through these connections, he developed his own style and created his own universe, blending aerosol painting with watercolors. He is constantly in search of innovating, as much in his technique as in the choice of his subjects. He creates artworks that combines the figurative and the imaginary. His work takes the public into a surrealistic universe, both romantic and oneiric, that exudes an edgy sense of humor with his own poetic touch.”

To see more from Dodo than what I was lucky enough to photograph, you are invited to see his gallery on the Ashop website as well as his personal Instagram page.

Biographie tirée du site web d’Ashop: “Dodo Ose est un artiste spécialisé en Beaux Arts et en graffiti basé à Montréal. Né dans la prestigieuse ville de Lyon, Dodo Ose est initié à l’art dès son jeune âge. Il passe son adolescence dans le sud de la France, où il découvre l’univers du graffiti. Ses études en beaux-arts à Cannes le mènent ensuite à intégrer la peinture traditionnelle à son style et à y présenter ses premières expositions en galeries. En 2010, Dodo déménage au Canada, à la recherche de défis et de nouvelles expériences. L’ambiance artistique de Montréal inspire le jeune artiste qui décide de s’y installer. Il se joint éventuellement au Ashop et au K6A, deux collectifs artistiques multidisciplinaires. Ces connexions le poussent à perfectionner son style et à créer son propre univers, mélangeant la peinture aérosol à l’aquarelle. Dodo Ose cherche constamment à innover, autant dans la technique que dans les sujets abordés. En jouant avec le symbolisme et les archétypes universels, l’artiste concocte des paysages oniriques et surréalistes qui fusionnent le figuratif à l’imaginaire. Cherchant à transmettre les sentiments abstraits qui dansent derrière nos paupières, son travail reflète l’énergie Jungienne de la poésie et de la fantaisie.”

Pour en voir plus que ce que j’ai eu la chance de photographier, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à sa gallerie sur le site d’Ashop ainsi qu’à sa page Instagram.

graffiti pieces

Dodo started off writing OSER when he did letters, then as he gradually became Dodo Osé he switched to writing DODO. Therefore, the more recent pieces at the top of this section read DODO while the older ones below read OSER.

Dodo a commencé par écrire OSER lorsqu’il faisait du graffiti puis, après qu’il soit devenu Dodo Osé, il s’est mis à écrire DODO. Conséquemment, les pièces les plus récentes au début de la section ci-dessous se lisent DODO alors que les plus vieilles plus bas se lisent OSER.

In St-Henri.

Retrospective of 2017 murals and other painted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 great murals and other painted street art pieces from 2017. It is not necessarily the best of the year because taste is a subjective thing and I was obviously not able to photograph everything. The selection was done partly from my own personal favourites but mostly from those of my followers on Instagram. Of course this list was put together from what I was actually able to photograph, so keep in mind that it may lack some great work that just slipped between the cracks.

The pieces are shown here in alphabetical order of artist/crew name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular writers, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 murales et autres pièces de street art peint créées en 2017 à Montréal. Cette liste n’a pas la prétention d’être un best of de l’année puisque les goûts sont personnels et je n’ai évidemment pas eu la chance de tout photographier. La sélection s’est faite en partie parmi mes pièces favorites, mais surtout parmi les préférées de mes abonnés Instagram. Cette liste a bien sur été créée à partir de ce que j’ai eu la chance de trouver et de photographier, ce qui signifie que quelques chef d’oeuvres de 2017 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique d’artiste/crew. Pour que la liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques graffeurs populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée.
