Retrospective of 2021 graffiti

This image gallery brings together 200 great pieces of Montreal graffiti from 2021. 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/crew name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular writers, I have set a maximum of 3 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists under one common theme count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 200 pièces de graffiti produites en 2021 à Montréal. 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 2021 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique de nom d’artiste/crew. Pour que la liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques graffeurs populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 3 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée.

Covid-19 in Montreal urban art

This article features photos of Montreal street art and graffiti inspired by the Covid-19 virus and everything that is related to it:
– the social measures to prevent its spread such as the confinement, hand washing, distancing, masks, etc.
– appreciation for the health workers and concern about their status
– the population’s reaction to the crisis, such as the rainbows and “ça va bien aller” slogan, as well as the fear of the vaccines being developed.

Cet article présente des photos de street art et de graffiti créé à Montréal et inspiré par le virus Covid-19 et tout ce qui peut y être rattaché:
– les mesures sociales de prévention telles que le confinement, le lavage des mains, la distanciation, le masque, etc.
– l’appréciation pour le personnel dans le milieu de la santé et les revendications sociales relatives au statut d’une part de ce personnel
– les réactions de la population vis-à-vis la crise, telles que les arcs-en-ciel, “ça va bien aller”, ainsi que les réactions quant au développement éventuel de vaccins.


murals

This is the only mural done in Montreal related to Covid-19 and its social impact. It is a beautiful tribute to the health workers who were on the frontline of the fight against the virus. It was done by Patrick Forchild on a wall of the Jewish General Hospital for the 2020 edition of Mural Festival. The JGH was the Montreal hospital that was most equipped to deal with the sanitary crisis, with a whole department ready to receive patients from the very beginning.

This mural is not actually street art in the strictest sense, as it was commissioned by the government of Quebec for a music video encouraging young people to wear a mask. The artist who created the piece asked to remain uncredited. See the video here.


other painted work

This is Emily Read on a garage door in Villeray. With its rainbow and a pangolin, there is no doubt this was inspired by the events following the spread of the pandemic. The virus is suspected to have spread to humans from pangolins sold in a wet market in Wuhan, China.

This piece by Louis Letters saying “Coronavirus” was done about a week before the world ground to a halt in mid March.

A graffiti piece by Rizek done in an abandoned building very soon after the arrival of the virus in Montreal.

A tribute to the health workers by Hoar done on a legal-ish wall in Rosemont.

A self-portrait by Omar Bernal painted at the Rouen legal graffiti tunnel near the beginning of the sanitary crisis. The correction in red paint is by the artist himself and part of his message.

This piece by Lost Claws in a Plateau alley is very likely a comment on the crisis.

This stencil by Carnior was found on a Petite-Patrie high school when kids were returning to school in September. It was a hot topic in the media at the time, with half the population seeing it as a good thing and the other half thinking it was a dreadful idea.

Riok at the Rouen legal graffiti tunnel around the time when the government started making the mask mandatory in indoor public places.

An unidentified artist, perhaps Makes, at the Papineau legal graffiti wall. “Ca va bien aller”, the ‘slogan’ of the crisis, means “Everything will be fine”.

In Montreal like in many other cities, families with kids used their free time in confinement creating these “Ca va bien aller” rainbows and displaying them in their windows. This particular rainbow was painted by an anonymous person at the Papineau legal graffiti wall at the very beginning of this trend.

One more optimistic rainbow painted by an anonymous person, this one at the PSC legal graffiti wall.

As the sanitary crisis started dragging on for longer than what we initially expected and people’s patience was being put to the test, jokes on the crisis’ ‘logo’ and slogan started appearing here and there.

A thank you to health workers in time of the pandemic, by an unidentified artist. The text more or less translates to “Solidarity with all workers during the pandemic. The virus has exposed how human exploitation is alive and well in 2020. Let’s work towards a society in which workers, women and Quebec are free.”

This piece by Abir appears to be a comment on the whole year’s events, beyond the pandemic per se.

The fears surrounding the production of a vaccine to the virus, and particulary about Bill Gates’ involvement in its production and distribution, were also a source of inspiration to some artists. This is Maniak in Rosemont.

One more by Maniak on the same subject as above, but this time at the Papineau legal graffiti wall.

Wonez at the PSC legal graffiti wall soon after the start of the vaccination campaign.


pasted work

Posters by Huile d’Olive such as this one appeared here and there from the very beginning of the crisis. English language ones were also pasted, see below.

An english version of the above poster by Huile d’Olive.

For this Petite-Patrie piece CSRK was inspired by the unexpected toilet paper shortage that marked the beginning of the confinement. There was actually a bit more to it, see the artist’s account to view the complete original which had the text “Wash your hands” on the unrolled toilet paper.

One more wheatpaste by CSRK found in Petite-Patrie, this one from later into the crisis.

A paste-up by SciWalkArt.

This piece by Lost Claws found on the wall of a Mile End church at the beginning of the Great Confinement is presumably about the virus. The caption reads “Up to your old tricks?”. See close-up below.

Close-up on the above piece by Lost Claws.

As the number of deaths was rising every day and the governments started asking the population to stand at least 6 feet apart to help contain the spread of the virus, this dark humour piece by Lost Claws appeared on a Plateau wall, as “six feet away” also recalls “six feet under”.

While the rising number of deaths was the main topic in the news, this piece by Lost Claws with the caption “You get used to it”, appeared on a Petite-Patrie wall.

Here’s a 50 x 50 tile installation by Shelley Miller inspired by the first wave of the pandemic. The colours each represent a different Montreal borough (in percentage of cases), and each column represents a day, for 50 days. It therefore shows how in the early days of the pandemic (left of the piece), the relative evolution of boroughs was quite different, but after 35 days (right of the piece), everything seemed to stabilize. More info from the artist’s account via the above link.

This bollard was already made into a minion by François Poulin a long time before the arrival of the virus, but masks we added to it, presumably by the artist himself at the beginning of April.

The opposite side to the above mask-wearing minion bollard by François Poulin.

This ia a miniature installation replicating a Plateau housefront with bicycle, cat, etc. To give an idea of scale, the whole thing shown here is the size of a small basement window (it actually looks like a boarded window). This existed long before the arrival of the virus, but a rainbow and the ‘Ca va bien aller’ slogan were added in the ‘windows’ at some point so it would look like so many housefronts in the neighbourhood.

Retrospective of 2019 graffiti

This image gallery brings together 200 great pieces of Montreal graffiti from 2019. 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/crew name. To ensure that the list wasn’t filled with only work from a few popular writers, I have set a maximum of 3 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists under one common theme count as one entry.
