Retrospective of 2018 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2018 that were created in a studio, then pasted, glued, screwed in or cemented into a public place. 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 name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular artists, I have set a maximum of 4 pieces per person. Collaborations by two or more artists count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 pièces de street art produites en 2018 à Montréal, créées en studio avant d’être collées, vissées ou fixées dans le ciment dans un endroit public. 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 2018 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

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

Labrona was very busy putting up ‘peatwastes’ (as he calls them) this year.

This Labrona wheatpaste comes with a calligraphic tag by Lorem Ipsum.

Nothing better than a Labrona wheatpaste to embellish a closed business front. Funny how the characters here seem to be pointing at the tags and litter.

The very active Lost Claws has become one of Montreal’s top pasters this year with a selection of bigger and wittier but often pessimistic pieces.

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.

St-Laurent|Clark back alley between Duluth and des Pins

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 and graffiti. Two stretches of that alley are particularly interesting: the one from Laurier to St-Viateur (the subject of a separate post) and the one from Duluth to des Pins which is covered here. Some of this city’s greatest artists have left their mark there in the form of big murals, smaller figurative pieces, great graffiti, wheatpastes, stencils and of course the unavoidable stickers.

Each segment of the alley has a different feel, so this post is divided accordingly. Most of the photos were taken between the summers 0f 2014 and 2016. Follow me as we walk down from Duluth to des Pins.

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 les rues Laurier et St-Viateur (le sujet d’un différent article) et celle comprise entre Duluth et des Pins, 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, pièces collées, pochoirs, et évidemment les inévitables autocollants.

La gallerie-photo ci-dessous est divisée en chapitres reflétant le caractère différent de chaque segment de cette portion de la ruelle. La majorité des photos ont été prises entre les étés de 2014 et de 2016. Suivez-moi dans cette marche de Duluth à des Pins.


Duluth

The walk down the alley starts at the corner of Duluth. At the entrance of the alley, on Duluth itself, is this house featuring Waxhead and Gawd. Waxhead repaints the house’s facade once or twice a year. Photos below appear in chronological order, two from 2012, one from 2013, two from 2014 and three from 2015.

Notre marche commence au coin de la rue Duluth. A l’entrée de la ruelle, sur Duluth même, se trouve cette maison dont le frontispice a été peint par Waxhead et Gawd. Waxhead repeint le devant de cette maison une ou deux fois par année. Les photos ci-dessous sont présentées en ordre chronologique. Il y en a deux de 2012, une de 2013, deux de 2014, trois de 2015 et une de 2017.

Earliest photographed version, from 2012.

Later in 2012. Addition of Gawd in the upper part and Waxhead redid the window. Scroll down for more.

After an extended break Waxhead finally redid the window of the above house in late 2017. Gawd is still visible above. Drawings in the window are by Waxhead and Sloast.

The 2019 edition of the house has Waxhead on and below the window, Cryote over the door and Gawd remains above them both.

2016 piece by Scribe next to the above house.

Scribe redid the above wall off-Mural in 2018, and extended it all the way to the street corner.


Duluth to Bagg

This short segment features mainly one big mural, smaller figurative pieces, a bit of pasting and lots of graffiti and tags.

Ce court segment inclut une grande murale, quelques pièces figuratives de plus petite envergure, quelques pièces collées et beaucoup de graffitis et tags.

After Turtle Caps redid the above garage door, it was consistently vandalised by taggers. A turf war ensued, with each party going over each other within a day or two. This is the third version of Turtle Caps’ contribution.

See above. This is something like Turtle Caps‘ seventh version of this door. Notice the new Waxhead piece on the left.

St-Cuthbert

As we cross St-Cuthbert over to the next segment of the alley, contributions to the Mural Festival can be seen on the lateral wall of a St-Laurent pawn shop. Shown below is Scaner and Axe‘s contribution to the 2014 edition of the festival, which replaced the piece done by WZRDS GNG for the 2013 edition (also shown below). Until 2012 this wall only featured tags and uninteresting graffiti.

Alors que nous traversons St-Cuthbert vers le prochain segment de la ruelle, nous sommes en mesure de voir une des contributions au Festival Mural sur le mur lateral d’un pawn shop de la rue St-Laurent. La gallerie-photo ci-dessous inclut la contribution de Scaner et Axe à l’édition 2014 ainsi que la contribution du collectif WZRDS GNG à l’édition 2013 du festival. Avant sa sélection comme canevas par le Festival Mural, ce mur ne présentait que des tags et graffitis sans grand intérêt.

St-Cuthbert to Roy

Omen‘s contribution to the 2013 edition of Mural Festival was visible (until it was replaced with a new mural; see next) from this segment of the alley just as much as from St-Laurent, through a parking space accessible from both sides. At the bottom of the mural are letter pieces by Omen and Five Eight.

The above Omen mural was replaced by one from Nychos for the 2015 edition of Mural Festival.

Great piece by Nixon.
