Here’s a photo gallery of the new murals and other painted works of smaller scale finished during the month of September.

If you want to see new works as soon as I photograph them, you can follow me on Instagram.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales ainsi que les autres pièces peintes de plus petite taille terminées au cours du mois de septembre. Les nouvelles oeuvres collées (collages, autocollants, etc) ainsi que les nouveautés graffiti font l’objet d’articles à part. Pour voir les nouvelles oeuvres aussitôt photographiées, vous êtes invités à me suivre sur Instagram.

Mural Festival 2015

This article features the new murals created during the 2015 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. Missing is the mural planned by XRAY which was cancelled because of miscommunications with the owner of the wall originally assigned to the artist.

Only four earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Kashink and the 123Klan mural from the 2014 edition, as well as the Omen and Caron murals from the 2013 edition. Last year’s RR & DB wheatpaste mural has since been destroyed by rain and winter; the space was therefore already ready for something new. The Cyrcle mural from 2014 is also gone, that wall had to be rebuilt and it was not yet ready to be covered with a new mural.

You may want to check out this walking tour which I have put together: starting from ‘mural central’ behind the LNDMRK offices, up St-Dominique and the eastern side of St-Laurent then down Clark and the western side of St-Laurent.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2015 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal). Il ne manque que la murale de XRAY qui n’a pas été produite suite à une confusion concernant la disponibilité du mur réservé pour cet artiste.

Seulement 4 murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Kashink et du 123 Klan produites dans le cadre de l’édition 2014 ainsi que celles d’Omen et de Caron datant de l’édition 2013. La murale avec collage par RR & DB datant de l’an dernier était déjà détruite par la pluie et l’hiver. Cet espace était donc déjà disponible pour recevoir une nouvelle oeuvre. La murale de Cyrcle produite l’année dernière est aussi disparue, mais elle n’a pas été remplacée, le mur étant en cours de réparation.

Vous pourriez être intéressé par ce tour pédestre que j’ai créé: débutant à la ‘place des murales’ derrière les bureaux de LNDMRK, ensuite vers le nord le long de St-Dominique et le côté est de St-Laurent, puis vers le sud le long de Clark et le côté ouest de St-Laurent.

Mathieu Connery sidewalk pieces

Mathieu Connery has been painting his abstract pieces on the sidewalks of St-Laurent since the first edition of Mural Festival. This year he came up with two new pieces and restored a few of the ones from last year which had faded. Then, over the weeks following the end of the festival, he transformed a few of the fading 2014 creations.

Mathieu Connery a peint un certain nombre de pièces abstraites sur les trottoirs de St-Laurent pour chaque édition du Festival Mural. Cette année il a créé deux nouvelles pièces et rafraichit certaines de l’an dernier qui étaient en voie de disparaitre. Dans les semaines qui ont suivi la tenue du festival, il a adapté quelques pièces de 2014 qui étaient en voie de disparaître.

Cabane à sucre, a secret art gallery

Over the 12 days leading up to August 29, over 40 artists mostly from Montreal got together and created an open-air art gallery on the walls of the interior courtyard of a three-storey building in the lower Plateau, near the Quartier des Spectacles. The secret project was the brainchild of New York City expat Turtle Caps and was inspired by Surplus Candy, a similar project put together at the end of last year by New York City-based pun-loving street artist Hanksy. The Montreal project was actually titled ‘Cabane à sucre’ as a sweet reference to Hanksy’s Surplus Candy.

Turtle Caps found the space a few months ago and knew that something special could be done with it. He expects the building to be torn down in the near future to make way for new condos and wanted to give it a final makeover – a swan song of sorts. The line-up of artists that he managed to get involved are all friends. Most of them are street artists, but a few had never worked outside or on walls before.

Turtle Caps stresses that he did not want this to be a commercial event, with entrance fee and commemorative DVDs. His intention was to counterbalance the growing influence of certain galleries and key players in the Montreal art scene who are increasingly dictating what’s cool and what’s not. Because it is only accessible through private apartments, the Cabane à sucre gallery will remain a private one, never to be made available to the general public. However, in order to give a bit of publicity to his fellow artists who got involved solely for the love of art and creation, without funding of any kind, he agreed to give media and street art enthusiasts such as myself access to the gallery, by appointment, one day only, on August 29, 2014.

Pendant les 12 jours précédant le 29 août dernier, une quarantaine d’artistes montréalais se sont réunis pour créer une gallerie d’art à ciel ouvert sur les murs de la cour intérieure d’un édifice de 3 étages du bas-Plateau, près du quartier des spectacles. Ce projet secret est l’initiative de l’artiste Turtle Caps, originaire de New York mais très actif à Montréal depuis quelques années. La gallerie a été intitulée ‘Cabane à sucre’, un clin d’oeil à Surplus Candy, un projet similaire monté l’année dernière à New York par l’artiste Hanksy.

Turtle Caps a découvert l’espace en question il y a huit mois and a immédiatement vu son potentiel. Il s’attend à ce que l’édifice soit détruit sous peu pour faire place à de nouveaux condos et voulait lui donner son chant du cygne avant l’arrivée des grues de démolition. Les artistes qui ont répondu à son invitation sont tous des amis. La plupart viennent de la scène street, mais quelques uns n’avaient jamais travaillé à l’extérieur ou sur un mur avant de recevoir l’invitation.

Turtle Caps souligne qu’il ne voulait pas faire du projet un événement commercial, avec prix d’entrée et DVD commémoratif. Son intention était de dénoncer ou de contrebalancer l’influence grandissante de certaines galeries et acteurs de la scène d’art montréalaise dictant ce qui est cool et ce qui ne l’est pas. Parce qu’accessible seulement via des logements privés, la gallerie Cabane à sucre est vouée à demeurer privée et ne sera jamais vue du grand public. Ceci étant dit, afin de redonner un peu de visibilité aux artistes qui se sont impliqués seulement par amour de l’art, sans subvention, il a accepté de donner accès aux médias et aux passionnés de street art, sur rendez-vous seulement, le 29 août 2014.
