Retrospective of 2018 graffiti

This image gallery brings together 200 great pieces of Montreal graffiti from 2018. 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/crew name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular writers, I have set a maximum of 3 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists under one common theme count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 200 pièces de graffiti produites en 2018 à Montréal. 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/crew. Pour que la liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques graffeurs populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 3 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée.

I never single out a piece in my yearly retrospectives, but this huge tribute to Scaner deserves a special mention. As far as I know, nothing of this scale has been done ever before. The piece is the creation of Scaner’s KG crewmates Zek (who wrote the letter outlines) and Stare, it features characters by Harry Bones and Axe Lalime, and is filled with pieces by nearly 100 local and international artists. A special post is dedicated solely to this historical creation, check it out here. Zek, Stare and Axe all have solo pieces in this list, scroll down to see them. Zek and Axe are also featured in the Retrospective of 2018 murals and other painted street art.

The Sun Youth front wall project

As the Mural Festival was kicking off, a bunch of mostly local artists were invited by Waxhead to participate in a major production on the front wall of the Sun Youth building. The work that was done is striking, but the other great thing about it is that it brought together figurative and graffiti artists. The pieces are presented below as they appear from left to right on the wall.

Alors que se tenait le Festival Mural, une douzaine d’artistes surtout locaux étaient invités par Waxhead à contribuer à une production majeure sur le mur de devant de l’édifice logeant Jeunesse Au Soleil. L’oeuvre globale qui en résulte est extraordinaire, mais elle se démarque aussi par son mélange de pièces figuratives et de graffitis. Les oeuvres sont présentées ci-dessous dans l’ordre où elles apparaissent sur le mur.
