New street art July-August 2015

Here’s a gallery of recent murals, wheatpastes, installations, stickers, etc, created in our great city in the past few weeks. Keep in mind that everything done in the context of the Under Pressure Festival is presented in its own separate post. If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Voici une galerie-photo présentant les nouvelles murales, collages, installations, autocollants, etc, créés au cours des dernières semaines. Les nouvelles oeuvres produites dans le contexte du Festival Under Pressure font l’objet d’un article à part. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

St-Laurent|Clark back alley between Laurier and St-Viateur

The back alley that runs behind the western side of St-Laurent is one of Montreal’s great hotspots for commissioned and non-commissioned street art. Two stretches of that alley are particularly interesting: the one from Duluth to Des Pins (subject of a different post) and the one from Laurier to St-Viateur which is covered here. Some of this city’s greatest artists have left their mark there in the form of murals, smaller figurative pieces, graffiti, wheatpastes, stencils and of course the unavoidable stickers.

Each segment of the alley has a different feel, so this post is divided accordingly: Laurier to Fairmount, Fairmount to St-Viateur, and above St-Viateur. Pieces were photographed from the summer of 2014 to the summer of 2016.

La ruelle se trouvant derrière le coté ouest de la rue St-Laurent est une des meilleures galeries à ciel ouvert à Montréal. Deux portions de cette ruelle sont particulièrement intéressantes: celle comprise entre Duluth et Des Pins (le sujet d’un article à part) et celle comprise entre les rues Laurier et St-Viateur, que nous traitons ici. Plusieurs parmi les meilleurs artistes à Montréal y ont laissé leur marque (commandée ou non) sous forme de murales et pièces figuratives de plus petite envergure, graffitis, collages, pochoirs, et évidemment les inévitables autocollants.

La gallerie-photo ci-dessous est divisée en chapitres reflétant le caractère différent de chaque segment de cette ruelle: Laurier à Fairmount, Fairmount à St-Viateur, et nord de St-Viateur. Les pièces présentées ont été photographiées de l’été 2014 à l’été 2016.

Alex Produkt

Alex Produkt’s main means of expression on the streets of Montreal is painting and drawing. He’s also pasted some of his work, but I’ve unfortunately never been able to photograph any of it. There are therefore no wheatpastes in the gallery below. He shines on canvas even more than he does on city walls, a rare thing among our street artists in my opinion. Actually, I love his studio work so much, I can only imagine what he could come up with if he was given a big wall and enough time to cover it with scenes and characters from his crazy imagination. Meanwhile, learn more on the artist and check out his studio work on his Facebook, Instagram (Alex Produkt) and Instagram (Ricky Tuesday) pages. See him at work in “End Orphans”, a 10-minute short film directed in 2014 by Ian lagarde (scroll down a bit to view).

Dans les rues et ruelles de Montréal, Alex Produkt crée surtout des pièces murales et des dessins. Il a aussi pratiqué le collage, mais je n’ai pas encore eu la chance de prendre une de ses oeuvres collées en photo, ce qui explique l’absence de collage dans la galerie ci-dessous. Il brille encore plus sur canevas que sur les murs de notre ville, un phénomène rare parmi nos artistes street selon moi. En fait, son travail en studio me fascine tellement que je ne peux qu’imaginer ce qu’il en serait si on lui donnait un grand mur et assez de temps pour le couvrir de scènes et personnages issus de son imagination. D’ici là, vous pouvez en apprendre un peu sur l’artiste et voir de quoi il est capable sur toile en visitant ses pages Facebook, Instagram (Alex Produkt) et Instagram (Ricky Tuesday). Vous pouvez aussi le voir à l’oeuvre dans “End Orphans”, un cours film réalisé par Ian Lagarde en 2014.

Swarm

Swarm is originally from Toronto but now living in Montreal. Her favourite media in the streets is currently wheatpastes and stickers, but the artist is also the creator of small painted pieces and even a few murals.

For more information on Swarm, have a look at her Facebook and Instagram pages.

L’artiste d’art public Swarm est originaire de Toronto mais vit maintenant à Montréal. Elle semble préférer s’exprimer via les collages et les autocollants, mais elle est aussi l’auteure de pièces peintes et même quelques murales.
