New murals and other painted works August 2015

Here’s a gallery of murals and other smaller painted pieces produced during August 2015. This must have been one of the busiest months in Montreal street art history, I have to split the work I photographed into separate posts presenting pasted works (wheatpastes, paste-ups, stickers, etc.) and recent graffiti. If you wish to see new work as soon as I photograph it, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente une galerie-photo des murales et autres pièces peintes de plus petite envergure produites en août 2015. Ceci a dû être un des mois les plus occupés pour l’art urbain à Montréal. Conséquemment, des articles séparés sont consacrés aux plus récents collages (et autres pièces collées) et aux plus récents graffitis. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

New wheatpastes and stickers August 2015

Here’s a gallery of new pasted works – wheatpastes and stickers – found around Montreal since my last ‘new works’ post in early August 2015. August was a very busy month for our street artists, so painted works will be the subject of a separate post to be published within a day or two. If you wish to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Voici une galerie-photo présentant les oeuvres collées (collages, autocollants, etc.) trouvées à Montréal depuis mon dernier article de nouveautés paru au début août 2015. Nos artistes ont été particulièrement occupés ce dernier mois, les oeuvres peintes font conséquemment l’objet d’un article à part qui sera publié au cours des prochains jours. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

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.
