SBU One

SBU One was born in France but moved to Montreal in 2004. For many years his street work walked the line between figurative and abstract, never quite one or the other. In the past few years he appears to have been doing a bit more figurative work, as least as far as his street work is concerned. It often features animals and zoomorphic characters and mashups, although it tends to remain closer to abstract when he works with frequent collaborator MSHL. In recent years his notorierity has increased rapidly, leading him to participate to festivals such as Under Pressure and Amalgam and then Mural Festival in 2017.

To see much more than what is featured in the photo gallery below (including studio/gallery work, animation, comics, and a lot of amazing street work outside Montreal), check out sbuone.com as well as his Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr pages.

SBU One est né en France mais habite Montréal depuis 2004. Pendant plusieurs années son art de rue balançait entre le figuratif et l’abstrait, jamais tout à fait l’un ou l’autre. Depuis quelques années l’artiste penche un peu plus vers le figuratif, du moins en ce qui concerne son art urbain. Animaux et personnages zoomorphiques y font des apparitions fréquentes. Ceci étant dit, celui-ci redevient plutôt abstrait lorsqu’effectué conjointement avec son fréquent collaborateur MSHL. SBU One a gagné beaucoup en notoriété ces dernières années, menant à des participations remarquées à des festivals tels que Under Pressure et Amalgam, et à l’édition 2017 du Festival Mural.

Pour en voir bien plus que ce qui est présenté dans la gallerie-photo ci-dessous (incluant des oeuvres en studio/gallerie, de l’animation, de la bande dessinée et beaucoup d’oeuvres urbaines géniales hors-Montréal), jetez up coup d’oeil à sbuone.com ainsi qu’à ses pages Facebook, Instagram et Tumblr.

Very old piece dated 2006 in the Plateau.


Videshi babaji

SBU One has this recurring character which he calls “Videshi babaji” serving as some sort of logo and which he seems to use in the way graffiti writers would with a throw (quickly sprayed piece with outline and uniform fill). Most of the time the character is a bearded head with a hat, but in at least one instance (top of the gallery below), it was given a whole body. It also often comes with a speech bubble.

SBU One a un personnage récurrent appelé “Videshi babaji” lui servant en quelque sorte de logo, ou d’équivalent du throw (pièce rapidement exécutée ne consistant que d’un contour et un remplissage uniforme) chez les graffeurs. Dans la majorité des cas le perso est une tête d’homme barbu arborant une casquette, mais dans au moins un cas (première entrée dans la gallerie ci-dessous), SBU lui a donné un corps. Le personnage vient souvent avec une bulle de texte (façon bande dessinée).

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.

Debza

Debza is a tattoo artist and graffiti writer originally from Toulouse but now based in Montreal. As seen in the image gallery below, he can be versatile and his writing style, at times influenced by japanese illustration, is quite unique. He belongs to a few crews, notably GF (“Ghetto Farceur”), and works alongside other writers and artists on multi-artist projects. For more by Debza than what is shown here, have a look at his Facebook and Instagram pages. The following Youtube videos show the artist at work: video 1, video 2.

Debza est tatoueur et writer graffiti originaire de Toulouse mais maintenant établi à Montréal. Il est très versatile et son style unique d’écriture est parfois influencé par l’illustration japonaise. Il appartient à quelques crews, en l’occurrence GF (“Ghetto Farceur”), et il lui arrive régulièrement de collaborer avec d’autres artistes sur certains projets collectifs. Pour en voir plus de Debza que ce que j’ai eu la chance de photographier, jetez un coup d’oeil à ses pages Facebook et Instagram.

Rouks

Rouks is a multi-talented artist working on both sides of the urban art spectrum. On one hand he excels at portraits, he is actually earning his place among this city’s best portraitists. On the other he also shines as a graffiti writer alongside his mates in the Nextime Crew. My favourite works of his is when he brings the two together, doing letters with a side of figurative work. The image gallery below is therefore split into sections showing the murals he did or contributed to, his smaller figurative work, his graffiti work, and those special pieces combining letters and portraits.

To see more by Rouks than what is found below, check out his Instagram and Facebook pages.

Rouks est un artiste aux multiples talents touchant aux deux cotés du spectrum d’art urbain. D’une part il est un excellent portraitiste en train de se tailler une place parmi les meilleurs de Montréal. D’autre part, il brille aussi comme writer de pièces de graffiti aux cotés de ses amis dans le Nextime Crew. La gallerie-photo ci-dessous est donc divisée en sections montrant les murales qu’il a effectuées ou auxquelles il a contribué, ses plus petites pièces figuratives, ses pièces de graffiti, et ma section préférée comprenant ses pièces jumelant lettres et figuratif.

Pour en voir plus que ce qui se trouve ci-dessous, vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à ses pages Instagram et Facebook.

Naimo

Naimo is mostly known for his graffiti work but he also does some figurative murals, as seen in the image gallery below. He represents both the 203 Crew and Underdogs. To see more from this artist than what I am showing here, check out his Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr pages.

Naimo est surtout reconnu pour son art lettré (graffiti) mais, tel que visible dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous, il prend aussi des commandes pour des murales figuratives. Pour en voir plus que ce qui est présenté ici, jetez un coup d’oeil à ses pages Facebook, Instagram et Tumblr.
