Mural Festival 2019

This article features the new murals created during the 2019 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 from June 6th to 16th.

Five earlier Festival murals have been replaced with new ones this year. These are the Demsky and Michael Reeder walls from the 2018 edition, Scribe’s mural from the 2017 edition, and the Natalia Rak and Jonathan Bergeron creations from the 2016 edition.

You may want to check out this walking tour map connecting all Mural Festival creations and other major murals in the area.

Cet article présente les nouvelles murales créées dans le cadre de l’édition 2019 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 du 6 au 16 juin.

Cinq murales ont été remplacées par de nouvelles cette année: celles de Demsky et de Michael Reeder de l’édition 2018, celle de Scribe produite au cours de l’édition 2017, et celles de Natalia Rak et de Jonathan Bergeron datant de l’édition 2016.

Vous êtes invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à cet itinéraire pédestre reliant toutes les murales produites dans le cadre de toutes les éditions du Festival ainsi que les autres créations majeures dans le même quartier.

Waxhead’s sidewalk pieces

In 2019 it was Waxhead‘s turn to supply the sidewalk pieces in the Mural zone. He did thirteen hopscotch pieces in total, all on St-Laurent between Milton and Laurier.

En 2019 c’était au tour de Waxhead de créer les pièces de trottoir pour le Festival Mural. Il a créé treize marelles, toutes sur St-Laurent entre Milton et Laurier.


information/ad boards

Every year the backs of the Festival’s many information and advertisement boards are painted by a selection of mostly local artists, a great way to showcase a lot of additional Montreal talent.

A chaque année le revers des panneaux d’information et de publicité du Festival sont peints par divers artistes locaux, une excellente initiative permettant de présenter une grande quantité de talent montréalais.

Benny Wilding / Cemz / Ether

Benny Wilding aka Cemz aka Ether is the ultimate urban artist, having started off as a graffiti writer and then evolved into becoming one of Montreal’s great muralists. He started in 1997 writing ‘Cemz’ and quickly earned the respect of his peers. Around 2004 he switched to writing ‘Ether’ and kept that name for a bit more than a decade. Over 2016, as his career as a muralist started growing significantly, he reverted back to ‘Cemz’ and this is his regular writing name nowadays. His main allegiance over the years has been with the crew TFB, but he’s also in DA, TFO and more recently KG (to name a few), crews that include many of our city’s best writers.

His murals and other figurative pieces are usually mash-ups of various pop-art vintage elements: cartoons, old logos, commercial lettering and other nostalgia-tinged iconography inspired by old ads and catalogues. Most interestingly, they also often include his name-piece, creating a contrast between that warm nostalgia and his wildstyle street side.

To learn more about Benny Wilding, have a look at this great 2018 interview by Mural Festival. To view more than I was able to photograph, and to see his work outside Montreal as well as his studio work, folow him on Instagram. Finally, there’s a short bio and photos of work he has done for Ashop in this Ashop bio.

Benny Wilding / Cemz / Ether est le parfait artiste urbain, ayant débuté comme graffeur puis graduellement fait son chemin pour devenir un des grands muralistes de Montréal. Il a débuté en 1997 sous le nom ‘Cemz’ et a rapidement gagné le respect de ses pairs. Aux environs de 2004 il a commencé à écrire ‘Ether’ et a conservé ce nom pour une douzaine d’années. Au cours de l’année 2016, alors que sa carrière de muraliste prenait de l’essor, il a repris le nom ‘Cemz’ et c’est ce nom qu’il utilise de nos jours pour ses pièces de graffiti. Sa principale affiliation au fil des années a été avec le crew TFB, mais il fait aussi partie de DA, TFO et plus récemment KG (pour n’en nommer que quelques uns), des crews incluant plusieurs des meilleurs graffeurs de Montréal.

Ses murales et autres pièces figuratives combinent généralement divers éléments pop-art vintages tels que des personnages de bandes dessinées, des logos, du graphisme commercial ainsi que des personnage ou objets tirés de vieilles pubs ou de vieux catalogues. Fait intéressant, ses grandes créations incluent aussi son nom en plein milieu, mettant ainsi en contraste le coté nostalgique et réconfortant de l’iconographie vintage avec la modernité de son graffiti wildstyle.

Pour en apprendre plus sur Benny Wilding, vous êtes invités à lire cette entrevue pour Festival Mural datant de 2018. Pour voir plus que ce que j’ai eu la chance de photographier, particulièrement ses oeuvres hors-Montréal ainsi que son travail en studio, suivez-le sur Instagram. Enfin, une courte biographie et des photos de son travail pour Ashop se trouvent sur le site d’Ashop.

Retrospective of 2018 murals and other painted street art

This image gallery brings together 100 great murals and other painted street art pieces from 2018. 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 4 pieces per artist. Collaborations by two or more artists count as one entry.

Cette galerie-photo présente 100 murales et autres pièces de street art peint créées en 2018 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 2018 pourraient ne pas y figurer.

Les pièces apparaissent ci-dessous en ordre alphabétique d’artiste/crew. Pour que la liste ne soit pas totalement accaparée par quelques graffeurs populaires, j’ai fixé un maximum de 4 pièces par personne. Les collaborations entre deux ou plusieurs artistes sur un même thème ne comptent que pour une entrée.
