Serak is a Montreal graffiti writer from the KG and K6A crews. He has very little presence on the internet, to see more of his work than what is shown here, check out his Instagram account.

Collaboration between Axe Lalime and Fokus a week ahead of the festival.

Axe Lalime

Axe Lalime, or simply Axe, is a very prolific and versatile Montreal artist active since 1995. He stems from the world of graffiti but excels in various forms of figurative art, be it mural or on canvas. He is very active with the K6A crew, but also pays allegiance to crews KG and CFC. He has in the past been a frequent collaborator on A’Shop productions.

The photo gallery below is therefore mainly split into sections featuring his graffiti pieces, his figurative work as well as the great collective projects by A’Shop and K6A to which he contributed. To see more than what I had the chance to photograph, check out his Facebook and Instagram pages and this great video showing Axe at work on various pieces featured below.

Axe Lalime, ou tout simplement Axe, est un artiste montréalais prolifique et versatile, actif depuis 1995. Il vient du milieu du graffiti mais excelle aussi en art figuratif qu’il soit mural ou sur canevas. Il est très actif avec le collectif K6A mais prête aussi allégeance aux crews KG et CFC. Il a été de par le passé un fréquent collaborateur sur des projets réalisés par A’Shop.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous est conséquemment divisée en sections présentant ses pièces de graffiti, ses oeuvres figuratives ainsi que les grands projets collectifs auxquels il a participé aux cotés d’A’Shop et de K6A. Pour en voir plus que ce que j’ai eu la chance de photographier, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à ses pages Facebook et Instagram ainsi qu’a cette capsule video montre l’artiste en action, travaillant sur plusieurs des pièces présentées dans la galerie ci-dessous.

bandaid logo

Axe’s signature bandaid logo is often used to sign his murals and pieces (as seen in many instances above). It is also often painted by itself here and there as some sort of elaborate tag. The handful shown below is just a small fraction of the number I have found over the years.

Tel que vu ci-dessus, Axe signe plusieurs de ses murales et autres pièces avec son logo représentant deux pansements entrecroisés. Ce logo lui sert aussi de tag. Les quelques exemplaires montrés ci-dessous ne sont qu’une très petite fraction de ce que j’ai trouvé au cours des dernières années.

Truck 2 truck MTL – graffiti on wheels

This image gallery features a collection of graffiti (and a few figurative) pieces found on the sides and/or backs of trucks spotted in Montreal. Some of the work shown here was commissioned, but a good share of it was not. I apologize for the quality of some of the images: the trucks are often filthy and in many cases it was difficult to get a good angle between parked vehicles.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous présente des pièces de graffiti (et quelques figuratives) découvertes sur les cotés et derrières de camions à Montréal. Une bonne part de ces créations ont été commandées mais certaines pièces ne l’ont pas été. Je dois m’excuser de la piètre qualité de certaines de ces photos. Les camions ne sont pas toujours très propres et il est souvent difficile de trouver un bon angle entre les véhicules stationnés.

Monk.e

Monk.e logoIn his own words, Monk.e is “…a multi-talented thinker who expresses himself through his paintings, his poetry and his daily actions” (my translation). He his indeed a great communicator who leads two careers in parallel: urban visual artist and hip hop MC with already many albums to his credit. He his mainly known in the streets of Montreal for his community-oriented work often done alongside other members from K6A or for A’Shop. He his mostly recognised for his figurative murals bringing together man and nature, but he also does graffiti deconstructed to near-abstraction.

Even though the image gallery below mostly shows Montreal creations, Monk.e is also very active in the rest of Quebec as well as in many other places around the world such as Mexico, Uganda, Guyana and Kenya. To view his work outside Montreal or for info about his musical career check out his Facebook and Instagram pages.

Monk.e se dit être “…un penseur aux multiples talents qui exprime ses pensées les plus profondes à travers sa peinture, sa poésie et ses actions au quotidien”. Il est effectivement un grand communicateur et mène deux carrières en parallèle, celle d’artiste visuel urbain et celle d’emcee hip hop ayant déjà plusieurs albums à son actif. Il est surtout reconnu dans les rues de Montréal pour ses oeuvres à caractère communautaire, souvent effectuées en tandem avec ses collègues de K6A ou pour A’Shop. Son art balance entre du figuratif très axé sur l’humain et la nature, et du graffiti déconstruit à la limite de l’abstraction.

Bien que la galerie-photo ci-dessous montre surtout des oeuvres crées à Montréal, Monk.e est aussi très actif dans le reste du Québec ainsi qu’à plusieurs autres endroits de par le monde, tel que le Mexique, l’Ouganda, la Guyane et le Kenya. Pour des photos de son travail à l’extérieur de Montréal ou pour de l’information sur sa carrière musicale, jetez un coup d’oeil sur ses pages Facebook et Instagram.
