New street art April-May 2015

Here’s a rundown of new street art having appeared on our streets in the past few weeks. This post covers painted murals and other painted pieces, wheatpastes, stickers, stencils and wood-ups. A post dedicated to recent graffiti pieces should be published here within a few days.

Voici une galerie-photo présentant les nouveautés sous forme de murales et petites pièces peintes, collages, autocollants, pochoirs, etc apparues dans nos rues au cours des dernières semaines. Un article à part couvrant les pièces de graffiti sera publié d’ici quelques jours.

New street art and graffiti winter 2014-2015

After a break of 2 months, here’s the first ‘new works’ post of the year. Now that spring is at the door and our artists are going to hit the streets again, I should be able to go back to posting one or two of these every month.

A few murals and painted pieces were produced during the unusually warm final week of 2014. Then January and February were bitterly cold so not much happened besides stickers and tags. It takes a lot to stop Futur Lasor Now and Stela, so the ‘stickers’ section of the image gallery below includes a lot of their stuff. Waxhead is another of the braver ones. He probably nearly froze his fingers off making sure we got our fix of new painted pieces during the time of the year when others hibernate or go work in warmer climates.

Après un répit de 2 mois, voici le premier article de l’année présentant les nouveautés apparues dans les rues de Montréal. Maintenant que le printemps est à notre porte et que nos artistes vont reprendre la rue, je devrais être de nouveau en mesure de publier un ou deux de ces articles par mois.

Le temps doux que nous avons connu au cours de la dernière semaine de 2014 a rendu possible la création de quelques murales et autres pièces peintes de plus petite envergure. Ensuite les températures se sont maintenues sous les normales pour la majorité de janvier et février, et conséquemment les découvertes ont surtout été des autocollants et des tags. La section ‘stickers’ de la galerie-photo ci-dessous inclut beaucoup de pièces par Futur Lasor Now et Stela parce que rien ne semble arrêter ces deux irréductibles. Waxhead est aussi parmi nos plus braves artistes. Alors que la plupart ont plutôt décidé d’hiberner ou d’aller travailler sous des ciels plus cléments, il s’est gelé les doigts pour que les accros comme moi puissent recevoir leur dose de nouvelles pièces peintes.


Murals and smaller painted pieces

This mural on Sherbrooke is credited to SoRaw and @SamyBaichy, but a search returned nothing for those names.

This small house on Duluth was given its bi- or tri-annual facelift by Waxhead. Also visible at the top is an older piece by Gawd. Check out the evolution of the house in Waxhead’s spotlight.

This new creation by Waxhead is a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki and was found in the McGill ghetto.

New Waxhead found in an alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

This huge graffiti by the 1017 Crew popped up on an abandoned gas station on Mont-Royal.

A quick throw by Nixon dedicated to Scaner, next to the Jean-Talon market.

Graffiti from early in the winter by an unidentified artist (left) and Listen (right), off St-Laurent.


Wheatpastes

This poster credited to Muesli appeared here and there in central Montreal in the week following the events at Charlie Hebdo. This particular one was found in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

Swarm (left) and Stela (right) in phone booth on Ontario.

This sign on Parc bears Ms Teri‘s name, but it is not clear whether or not she is the one who put up the arrow wheatpaste beneath it. Also visible is a sticker by Crue.

Above and below: wheatpastes of bagels recently popped up all over Bagelhood, mostly on St-Viateur, Parc and Fairmount. Artist unknown.

This particular creation was found in the alley between St-Laurent and Clark.

More bagels.

More pasted bagels. Also visible are stickers by Tik Tok (top) and Greasy Jim (bottom).

ROC514

ROC514 is mostly recognised for a cute round bird which can be found pasted all over Montreal. This bird has been seen in a variety of colours and patterns. The bigger varieties are usually made of pasted paper while the smaller ones come as stickers. Some have also been found painted and drawn. The artist often collaborates with other street artists and graffiti writers, a section of the photo gallery below features these collaborations.

ROC514 left Montreal for BC in 2017, but many specimens of her work are still found in the streets and alleys of Montreal. I expect she will keep a presence in our city through visits as well as the collaboration of many artists/friends who will put up her stickers. She did keep the ‘514’ in her name after all!

For more on ROC514, have a look at her Facebook and Instagram pages. You can buy ROC514 art and sticker packs at Storenvy.

ROC514 est surtout connue pour un petit oiseau dodu collé un peu partout dans plusieurs quartiers de Montréal. L’oiseau en question existe en de nombreuses couleurs et textures. Les plus grands spécimens sont sous forme de collages tandis que les plus petits se trouvent sous forme d’autocollants. Des spécimens ont aussi été aperçus peints ou dessinés. L’artiste aime aussi collaborer avec d’autres artistes et graffeurs, une section de la galerie-photo ci-dessous présente le fruit de ces collaborations.

ROC514 a quitté Montréal en 2017 lorsqu’elle est déménagée en Colombie Britannique, mais de nombreux specimens de sa création sont toujours présents dans nos rues et ruelles. On peut s’attendre à une présence maintenue via des visites régulières et la collaboration d’artistes et d’amis d’ici qui continueront à distribuer ses autocollants. Elle a tout de même conservé le ‘514’ dans son nom après tout!

Pour en voir plus par ROC514, voir ses pages Facebook et Instagram. Il est possible d’acheter des créations de ROC514 via Storenvy.
