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.

Wheatpaste/stencil combo by Cam.

Chat Perdu poster. I’ve encountered many variations of this, each one with a different caption.

I believe this paste-up is by Chat Perdu.

We were blessed with a visit by internationally renowned artist Clet this year.

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.

One more Labrona wheatpaste in one of his regular spots. Labrona has also made it into the Retrospective of 2018 murals and other painted street art.

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 pasted street art May-June 2016

Here’s a collection of photos of pasted street art found in the streets and alleys of Montreal in June 2016, including a few pieces from the end of May. Posts have already been published for painted street art and stickers and other media during the same period as well as for the 2016 edition of Mural Festival and the 2016 edition of MTL En Arts. For graffiti during the same period, see this post. If you want to see new Montreal street art and graffiti as soon as I photograph it, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet galerie présente des photos de collages apparus dans les rues et ruelles de Montréal au cours de juin 2016 (incluant quelques uns datant de la fin mai). Des articles ont déjà été publiés couvrant les oeuvres peintes et les autocollants et autres mediums pendant la même période ainsi que ce qui a été créé pour l’édition 2016 du Festival Mural et le festival MTL En Arts. Pour les graffitis durant la même période, voir cet article. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres de street art ou de graffiti aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

Retrospective of 2015 pasted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 pieces of Montreal street art from 2015 that were created in a studio, then pasted, glued, screwed in or cemented into a public place.

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.

A few variations on this Futur Lasor Now poster were spotted around central Montreal at the end of summer.

2015 saw this new variation in Futur Lasor Now‘s illuminati sticker series.

G.Knight came up with a series of mock currency wheatpastes and stickers in 2015. This large wheatpaste covers the whole corner door of the George General d’Auto Reparation.

This Lovebot wheatpaste was put up at the abandoned Canada Malting Plant. See the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by Lovebot.

A handful or two of Manyoly wheatpastes popped up around Plateau/Mile End over the summer. This one made this year-end list, but to be honest any of the others could have been picked instead.

Rey Midax returned to the streets this year with a few series of wheatpastes. The best series were these Madonnas, each one ‘dressed’ differently. I picked this particular one for this retrospective but any other could have been shown here as they are all quite impressive when seen in person.

Rey Midax also put up a series of Oscar Wilde wheatpastes over central Montreal and Hochelaga during the autumn.

Rey Midax‘s other series of wheatpastes showed Alan Turing.

A socio-political wheatpaste montage by Mimi who I wish was more active in the streets of Montreal.

During September Miss Me covered this UQAM building with wheatpastes of images and text for Leave Out Violence. As I was out of the country at the time, I have borrowed this photo © Miss Me. Check out this earlier post for more photos of other sides of the building.

Miss Me came up with new Musical Saints wheatpastes during the summer. This one showing Billie Holiday was particularly impressive.

This Marvin Gaye wheatpaste by Miss Me was seen here and there over town, but this particular specimen was picked to be shown in this year-end list because of the brilliant spot the artist found to display it. Photo © PiaMTL.

Miss Me also revisited her Portrait Of A Vandal wheatpaste series in the latter half of the year and came up with new variations. I picked this one to be shown here, but you can see others in this earlier post and this one.

Mono Sourcil put up a series of these pasted cardboard heads this autumn. See also Labrona above in this list for more pasted work by Mono Sourcil. Check out the Retrospective of 2015 murals and other painted street art for more by Mono Sourcil.

This is another one of these pasted cardboard heads by Mono Sourcil. See the whole dozen I was able to photograph in this earlier post.

Wood-up by Mouthful.

Posters signed by Muesli were found here and there in central Montreal following the Charlie Hebdo shooting at the beginning of 2015.

This is one of many stickers put up around Montreal by National Zombi this year. I picked this one to represent the whole series. Many can be seen in this earlier post, and a few more here.

This National Zombi sticker stands out from the rest and is cute enough to make this year-end list!

This wheatpaste by Le Renard Fou appropriately states “Le Renard Fou est back in town” and marked the beginning of a series of similar and very colourful wheatpastes put up by this artist in Mile End, the Plateau and Petite-Patrie.

New street art and graffiti Spring 2015

Here’s a gallery of new creations that have popped up on our streets since Spring broke. It’s mostly street art, plus a bit of graffiti that did not make it into this recent post.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous présente de nouvelles créations des derniers mois, surtout du street art, mais aussi un peu de graffiti n’ayant pas déjà figuré dans ce récent article.
