Germ Dee

To mark Germ Dee’s participation in the 2019 edition of Mural Festival, here’s a spotlight on his street work.

Germ Dee began painting in the streets of Montreal in the summer of 2016. He immediately became one of the city’s most prolific artists and quickly made friends with many of his local peers. With the exception of his very first few walls, Germ Dee has been mostly taking pop culture characters on his own personal spin, describing his work as ‘visionary bootlegs’.

To view more than Germ Dee’s street work, have a look at his Facebook and Instagram pages. If you can read French, there is an interesting interview with the artist at StoriesMTL. He sells merchandise featuring his art via his Etsy page.

Pour marquer la participation de Germ Dee à l’édition 2019 du Festival Mural, voici un profil-photo de la production street de cet artiste.

Germ Dee a débuté sa carrière montréalaise au cours de l’été 2016. Il est immédiatement devenu un de nos artistes les plus prolifiques, et s’est rapidement lié d’amitié avec plusieurs de ses pairs montréalais. A l’exception de quelques murs au tout début, l’essentiel de sa production consiste en versions ‘personalisées’ de personnages tirés de la culture populaire. Il décrit son art de visionary bootlegs, ce qui se traduirait grosso modo par ‘contrebande visionaire’.

Pour en voir plus que son travail de rue, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à ses pages Facebook et Instagram. Une entrevue intéressante avec l’artiste est disponible à StoriesMTL. Enfin, Germ Dee vend ses créations sur Etsy.

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.

Mural Festival 2017

This article features the new murals created during the 2017 edition of Mural Festival as well as the other temporary art found on the site (St-Laurent between Sherbrooke and Mont-Royal) while it was closed to traffic from June 8th to 18th.

Seven earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Meggs and the Pantone mural from the 2016 edition, the Nychos, Melissa del Pinto and Eric Clément murals from the 2015 edition, and the Squid Called Sebastian and Astro/La Paria ones from the 2013 edition. The Ashop mural on Napoleon, which is older than the festival, was also covered to make space for a new one.

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting all Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2017 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) pendant la tenue de l’événement du 8 au 18 juin.

Sept murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Meggs et de Pantone de l’édition 2016, les murales de Nychos, de Melissa del Pinto et d’Eric Clément produites pour l’édition 2015 ainsi que celles de A Squid Called Sebastian et d’Astro/La Pariadatant de l’édition 2013. La murale d’Ashop sur Napoleon, datant d’avant le Festival, a aussi été recouverte par une nouvelle création.

Vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à cet itinéraire pédestre reliant toutes les murales produites dans le cadre de toutes les éditions du Festival ainsi que les autres créations majeures dans le même quartier.
