Tributes to Scaner

This post is a photo gallery of tributes to Scaner that have appeared in Montreal since the writer passed away on 9 September 2017. Most of the creations are by writers doing Scan’s name, but I also found a few street art/figurative pieces celebrating Montreal’s graffiti king.

Artists did not wait for Scaner to be gone before celebrating him. A section at the end of this post features pieces honouring him after the news came out that he was terminally ill.

Voici une gallerie-photo d’hommages à Scaner trouvés à Montréal depuis le décès de ce dernier le 9 septembre 2017. La majorité des créations sont par des graffeurs écrivant le nom de Scaner, mais j’ai aussi trouvé quelques pièces de street art et autres pièces figuratives célébrant celui que la communauté Montréalaise du graff appelle son ‘king’.

Certains artistes n’ont pas attendu le départ de Scaner pour le célébrer. Une section au bas de cet article présente des pièces en son honneur créées après que la nouvelle se soit répandue qu’il ne lui restait que peu de temps.

Time Is Gold

Time Is Gold is the name of the last production supervised by Scaner before he passed away in early September 2017. Most of his closest buddies in crews KG, DA and Four S as well as a few other friends from the Montreal graffiti scene were invited by him to contribute. The production was halfway completed at the time of Scaner’s death, so it then turned into a tribute to the writer the Montreal graff community calls their king. A candle memorial at the base of his unfinished piece was actually where his friends would congregate for a few weeks following the day Scaner passed.

The production is found on the back and side walls as well as around the playground of a private high school in central/eastern Montreal. The premises are therefore only partially accessible and should be respected.

Time Is Gold est le nom de la dernière production dirigée par Scaner avant son décès au début de septembre 2017. La plupart des ses frères dans les crews KG, DA et Four S ainsi que quelques très bons amis de la scène montréalaise du graff ont répondu à son invitation de contribuer à la production. Puisque que celle-ci n’était qu’à demi complétée au moment du décès de Scaner, elle est par la suite devenue un hommage à l’artiste que la communauté montréalaise du graff nomme maintenant son “king”. D’ailleurs un mémorial à la chandelle à la base de sa dernière pièce demeurée inachevée était l’endroit où ses amis sont venus se recueillir et lui rendre hommage pendant quelques semaines suite à son départ.

La production se trouve sur les murs arrière et latéral ainsi qu’autour du terrain de jeu d’une école privée du centre-est de Montréal. Celle-ci n’est conséquemment que partiellement accessible et le coté privé de l’endroit devrait être respecté.

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.

Scan You Rock

Over the weekend of 22-23 April 2017 the Montreal graffiti community got together to celebrate Scaner, one of this city’s best and most respected writers/artists. For the occasion, the walls of the MPC Papers building on the corner of Cabot and Gilmore in the South West (a Montreal graffiti hotspot) were completely redone by over two dozens of Montreal’s best writers and artists, plus friends of Scaner’s who traveled from as far as the USA and Barcelona for the occasion. All in all, nearly 40 new pieces were created during the weekend, they are all shown in the gallery below.

The building where the event took place has been in the past the site of graffiti gatherings such as Meeting Of Styles/Can You Rock. This is why the event was unofficially dubbed with the pun Scan You Rock and the name stuck.

Au cours du weekend du 22-23 avril 2017 la communauté graffiti montréalaise s’est réunie pour célébrer Scaner, un de nos meilleurs artistes dans ce domaine, et sans contredit un des plus respectés. Pour l’occasion, les murs de l’édifice MPC Papers au coin de Cabot et de Gilmore dans le sud-ouest (un hotspot graffiti de Montréal) ont été complètement refaits par au moins deux douzaines des meilleurs artistes montréalais du graffiti ainsi que par quelques amis graffeurs de Scaner qui sont venus d’aussi loin que des Etats-Unis et de Barcelone pour l’occasion. En tout, près d’une quarantaine de nouvelles pièces ont été créées au cours de cette fin de semaine, elles sont toutes présentées dans la gallerie ci-dessous.

L’édifice où l’événement a eu lieu a par le passé été le site de festivals graffiti tels que Meeting Of Styles/Can You Rock. C’est ainsi que quelqu’un a officieusement baptisé l’événement du jeu de mot Scan You Rock, et le nom est resté.

Skor

Skor is mostly known for his affiliation with Ahuntsic’s SIK crew (alongside Shok, Narc and Tuna), but he also represents crews TBK (with Kemt, Sewk) and ITS (from Chicago). He returned to graffiti in 2013 after a break of about 10 years. He quickly gained the respect of his peers and of fans through his dedication to his art and his incredible talent. He constantly experiments with style and has evolved considerably since his return to the scene. He is also incredibly prolific, as evidenced in the photo gallery below which shows just a fraction of what he has given us since mid-2014.

To view much more than what is shown here, you should check out Skor’s Instagram and Flickr pages or this feature on Bombing Science. Skor is also featured in this February 2016 interview with the SIK crew published at Mook-Life.

Skor est surtout connu pour son affiliation avec le SIK crew d’Ahuntsic (aux côtés de Shok, Narc et Tuna), mais il représente aussi les crews TBK (avec Kemt et Sewk) et ITS (de Chicago). Il est revenu au graffiti en 2013 après une pause d’une dizaine d’années. Grâce à son dévouement envers son art et son incroyable talent il a rapidement gagné le respect de ses pairs et des amateurs de graffiti. Skor expérimente continuellement avec le style de ses pièces et a ainsi évolué considérablement depuis son retour à la scène du graf. Il est aussi extrêmement prolifique, tel que démontré dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous qui ne montre qu’une fraction de ce qu’il a créé depuis l’été 2014.

Pour en voir beaucoup plus que ce qui est présenté ici, jetez un coup d’oeil aux pages Instagram et Flickr de Skor, ou ce profil photo chez Bombing Science. Il est aussi possible d’en apprendre un peu sur l’artiste via cette entrevue avec le SIK crew publié chez Mook-Life en février 2016.
