Mural Festival 2016

This article features the new murals created during the 2016 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 (June 9th to 19th).

Five earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the sponsored one by Bicicleta Sem Freio and the 4-Tin mural from the 2015 edition, the Alexis Diaz one from the 2014 edition, the LNY mural from the 2013 edition, as well as the Ashop mural done last autumn because the wall was not ready on time for last year’s edition.

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting all Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area. It starts from ‘mural central’ behind the LNDMRK offices, goes 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 2016 du Festival Mural ainsi que les oeuvres temporaires trouvées sur le site (St-Laurent entre Sherbrooke et Mont-Royal) pendant la tenue de l’événement (9 au 19 juin).

Cinq murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Bicicleta Sem Freio et de 4-Tin produites pour l’édition 2015, celle d’Alexis Diaz produite dans le cadre de l’édition 2014, celle de LNY datant de l’édition 2013 ainsi que la murale commanditée d’Ashop produite l’automne dernier sur un mur qui n’était pas prêt à temps pour le festival.

Vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à cet itinéraire pédestre connectant toutes les murales produites dans le cadre de toutes les éditions du Festival ainsi que les autres créations majeures dans le même quartier. Le tour débute à la ‘place des murales’ derrière les bureaux de LNDMRK, monte vers le nord le long de St-Dominique et le côté est de St-Laurent, puis redescend vers le sud le long de Clark et le côté ouest de St-Laurent.

Jonathan Bergeron also came up with this little piece on a tree stump next to his mural (scroll up to the ‘murals’ section above to view the mural).


information boards

Every year the backs of the Festival’s many information boards are painted by a selection of mostly local artists, a great way to showcase a lot of additional Montreal talent. Included in here are a few “your face here” boards also found here and there on site for the enjoyment of kids and adults.

A chaque année le revers des panneaux d’information du Festival sont peints par divers artistes locaux, une excellent initiative permettant de présenter une grande quantité de talent montréalais. Cette section inclut aussi quelques panneaux dans lesquels les enfants et adultes peuvent insérer leur visage et se prendre en photo.

Peru143 aka Peru Dyer

Peru Dyer aka Peru143 is based in Toronto but he has been very active in Montreal on and off. He is mainly known for his murals which are usually commissioned. He has also contributed to projects for En Masse. He sometimes works within Wastoids, an unofficial ‘crew’ featuring his friends Cabin aka Cabe, Fasin and Anode. He also happens to be the brother of Chris Dyer, one of this city’s best known artists. For more information and photos of Peru Dyer’s art, check out Peru143.com and his Instagram page. Older material is still found at his apparently abandoned Flickr and WordPress pages.

Peru Dyer, surtout connu sous le nom Peru143, est basé à Toronto mais il a été très actif à Montréal et l’est toujours à l’occasion. Il est surtout reconnu pour ses murales commandées. Il a aussi participé à divers projets du ‘collectif’ En Masse. Il fait partie de Wastoids, un ‘crew’ non-officiel dont font aussi partie ses amis Cabin (Cabe), Fasin et Anode. Peru est aussi le frère de Chris Dyer, un des artistes les plus connus à Montréal. Pour plus d’information sur Peru et pour plus de photos de son travail, voir Peru143.com et sa page Instagram. Ses pages Flickr et WordPress semblent avoir été abandonnées depuis quelques années, mais on y trouve toujours une grande quantité de photos.

Alex Produkt

Alex Produkt’s main means of expression on the streets of Montreal is painting and drawing. He’s also pasted some of his work, but I’ve unfortunately never been able to photograph any of it. There are therefore no wheatpastes in the gallery below. He shines on canvas even more than he does on city walls, a rare thing among our street artists in my opinion. Actually, I love his studio work so much, I can only imagine what he could come up with if he was given a big wall and enough time to cover it with scenes and characters from his crazy imagination. Meanwhile, learn more on the artist and check out his studio work on his Facebook, Instagram (Alex Produkt) and Instagram (Ricky Tuesday) pages. See him at work in “End Orphans”, a 10-minute short film directed in 2014 by Ian lagarde (scroll down a bit to view).

Dans les rues et ruelles de Montréal, Alex Produkt crée surtout des pièces murales et des dessins. Il a aussi pratiqué le collage, mais je n’ai pas encore eu la chance de prendre une de ses oeuvres collées en photo, ce qui explique l’absence de collage dans la galerie ci-dessous. Il brille encore plus sur canevas que sur les murs de notre ville, un phénomène rare parmi nos artistes street selon moi. En fait, son travail en studio me fascine tellement que je ne peux qu’imaginer ce qu’il en serait si on lui donnait un grand mur et assez de temps pour le couvrir de scènes et personnages issus de son imagination. D’ici là, vous pouvez en apprendre un peu sur l’artiste et voir de quoi il est capable sur toile en visitant ses pages Facebook, Instagram (Alex Produkt) et Instagram (Ricky Tuesday). Vous pouvez aussi le voir à l’oeuvre dans “End Orphans”, un cours film réalisé par Ian Lagarde en 2014.
