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.

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 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 d’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.

New street art June-July 2015 part 2

Here’s a gallery of new street art that appeared in the streets and alleys of Montreal during July 2015, with a bit of leftovers from June. The past few weeks saw the creation of many murals and mural pieces, as well as a lot of wheatpastes thanks to the return of three of our biggest pasting artists (read below). There has a been a surprisingly small amount of new stickers on traffic signs and other ‘urban furniture’ the past few weeks. This is presumably because the city has been more pro-active in removing stickers lately, but also because our most active slappers are out of town or busy with personal projects. Again, there was enough graffiti to justify a separate post to be published within the coming week.

Stay tuned for some very big murals which should be completed in time for my next ‘new works’ post. Meanwhile, if you can’t wait until then, you can follow me on Instagram and view the progress of said murals, or see photos of the best of new street art as soon as I discover it.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous présente les nouvelles pièces de street art apparues dans nos rues et ruelles en juillet 2015, avec quelques restes de juin. Ces dernières semaines ont été marquées par la création d’un grand nombre de murales et de pièces murales, ainsi qu’un grand nombre de collages suite au retour de trois de nos plus importants artistes dans ce domaine (voir plus bas). Etonnamment, nous avons trouvé très peu de nouveaux autocollants. Ceci est probablement dû à une action plus aggressive de la ville contre ce medium (panneaux nettoyés ou remplacés, poteaux repeints), mais aussi au fait que nos ‘slappers’ les plus actifs étaient à l’extérieur ou occupés par divers projets personnels. Il y a eu assez de nouvelles pièces de graffiti pour justifier la publication d’un article séparé, à paraitre au cours de la semaine qui vient.

Quelques murales de très grande envergure sont en cours de production en ce moment. Elles devraient être complétées à temps pour mon prochain article présentant les nouveautés. D’ici là, si vous ne pouvez attendre, vous être invités à me suivre sur Instagram. Vous pourrez ainsi suivre l’avancement de ces murales et voir l’essentiel des nouvelles créations aussitôt découvertes.

Stare in Centre-Sud. Notice how the artist used the sign next to his wall to mock the label (stating artist name, title, format, etc.) found next to art pieces in museum.

wheatpastes and large paste-ups

We were spoiled in July by treats from three of this city’s major pasting artists: Stikki Peaches, Miss Me and Turtle Caps. All three had been relatively quiet in Montreal so far this year. Miss Me returned with a mix of older and new designs. The older ones were offered in new colours while the new designs were picked from the work she had created for her “Saints Of Soul” indoors expo last winter. Turtle Caps returned with mostly older designs, but the ones shown below were new to Montreal, at least in these formats.

Nous avons eu la chance en juillet de voir le retour de trois des plus importants artistes de Montréal s’exprimant par collage: Stikki Peaches, Miss Me et Turtle Caps. Tous les trois avaient été relativement absents des rues de Montréal cette année. Miss Me nous est revenue avec un mélange de nouveaux et d’anciens designs. Les anciens nous ont été offerts dans de nouvelles couleurs tandis que les nouveaux provenaient principalement de l’expo intérieure “Saints Of Soul” de l’hiver dernier. Turtle Caps nous a resservi beaucoup d’anciens designs, mais ceux présentés dans la galerie ci-dessous étaient nouveaux pour Montréal ou offert en nouveau format.

This wheatpaste showing Marvin Gaye by Miss Me was found in St-Henri but another specimen found in Mile End was already featured in my previous ‘new works’ post. The small paste-up in the bottom right corner is an older one by Zu.

This wheatpaste showing Nina Simone by Miss Me was found in Mile End.

July also saw the return on the mountain of the garbage barrels made into mock ‘Maple Sizzurp’ cans by WhatIsAdam aka WIA. For a limited time only!

Starkey‘s ‘wabbit’ wood-ups are reproducing faster than rabbits, so it’s hard to figure out which ones are new and which ones are not. This one and the one below appear to be relatively new.

Starkey‘s ‘wabbit’ wood-up at the legal graffiti tunnel on de Rouen. This one was cut out of an old ‘no parking’ sign.

New street art June-July 2015

This post features works which appeared in the streets of Montreal in June and the first week of July 2015 (and that I was lucky enough to catch, of course). Our artists have been very busy and a lot of others were in town for Mural Festival, so this post is another big one! Graffiti was left out, there’s so much of it that it deserves its own separate post.

Cet article présente des oeuvres apparues dans les rues de Montréal en juin et pendant la première semaine de juillet 2015 (ce que j’ai eu la chance de trouver, bien sur). Nos artistes ont été très occupés et plusieurs autres de l’extérieur étaient en ville pour le Festival Mural, cet article est donc très chargé! Les pièces de graffiti seront traitées dans un article séparé.

This is actually from slightly earlier than the period covered within this blog post, but I thought it was a one-off joke until I found more. Artist unknown.

More by the above unidentified artist.

A giant new piece by Stikki Peaches in the fashion district.

Turtle Caps is back in action. The piece on the left appears to be new, at least for Montreal, while the other one is not. Many other previously seen designs by this artist have been pasted around the Plateau and Mile End in the same week.

Finally some new Miss Me, with Turtle Caps in Mile End.

At the speed rabbits reproduce, it’s no surprise that Starkey‘s Wabbits are evolving.

Another one by Starkey, this one in alley between St-Denis and Drolet.

Unidentified artist over wooden piece.


Garbage Beauty

July 1st is moving day in Montreal, which means a lot of old furniture left on the sidewalks and a lot more opportunities for Garbage Beauty to do their thing. Below is just a small fraction of what they did in our streets in the past few weeks. Their best work does not remain outside very long before it gets picked up and given a new home (or the same home from whence it came!).

Le 1er juillet est jour de déménagement à Montréal, donc beaucoup de vieux meubles se retrouvent sur les trottoirs et deviennent canevas pour Garbage Beauty. Seulement une infime fraction de ce que Garbage Beauty a fait au cours des dernières semaines est présenté ici. Le meilleur de leur travail ne reste pas sur les trottoirs très longtemps avant d’être récupéré par de nouveaux (et parfois les anciens) propriétaires.

MC Baldassari (left) and Caratoes (right) both contributed walls to the most recent edition of Mural Festival but they also left their stickers.

Many handmade stickers by Free Willy appeared all over central Montreal and beyond. Above and below is a selection of what I found. Free Willy tags have also been spotted.

New stickers May-June 2015

There has been so much new work in Montreal since my last ‘new works’ installment that I must break this one into differents posts. The gallery below only features new stickers and small paste-ups. For other media, see recents posts about new painted works, new pasted works, the 2015 edition of Mural Festival and new graffiti.

You’ll notice in the image gallery below a lot of stickers by unidentified artists or by unfamiliar names. This is presumably due to the amount of artists from other cities who were in town to check out the Mural Festival.

Il y a eu un tel nombre de créations depuis mon dernier article présentant les nouveautés street art à Montréal que je dois découper celui-ci en sous-articles. La galerie-photo ci-dessous ne présente que les nouveaux autocollants et autres petites pièces collées. Pour les autres nouveautés, voir ces articles récents couvrant les nouveautés peintes, les nouveaux collages, l’édition 2015 du Festival Mural et les nouveaux graffitis.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous inclut un grand nombre d’autocollants d’origine inconnue ou signés de noms qui ne sont pas familiers. Ceci est probablement dû au fait que plusieurs artistes étrangers étaient en ville au début de juin dans le cadre du Festival Mural.
