Hoarkor’s pre-festival sidewalk promos

In the weeks leading up to the festival, Hoarkor aka HRKR painted a dozen promos on the sidewalks of the neighbourhood.

Au cours de la semaine précédant la tenue du festival, Hoarkor a peint une douzaine de pubs sur les trottoirs du quartier.

The following unofficial pieces were done during the festival on leftover space not reserved by the event. Of the three artists featured here, Debza and Akim also contributed official works, see above.

Mural Festival 2014

This post covers the 2014 edition of Mural Festival. For other editions, click on the latter link. 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. See also: Google’s Street Art Project feature on the Mural Festival.

Cet article présente les oeuvres produites dans le cadre de l’édition 2014 du Festival Mural. Pour les autres éditions, cliquez sur ce dernier lien. 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. A voir aussi: expo sur le Festival Mural par le Google Street Art Project.

2501 from Italy. Unfortunately this wall is only properly visible from a seldom used segment of St-Dominique. The bottom of it was also quickly covered in graffiti (more than what is seen in this photo, which was taken only a few days after the piece was finished).


Mathieu Connery’s sidewalk pieces

For the 2013 edition of the festival, Montreal artist Mathieu Connery painted three pieces in his own abstract and somewhat geometrical style on the sidewalks of St-Laurent. For the 2014 edition, the fading 2013 creations were painted over with new pieces, and seven new ones were added along the St-Laurent axis. Photos in the gallery below that were taken from an elevated position are © Vandalog. The ones taken at ground level are mine.

Dans le cadre de l’édition 2013 du festival, l’artiste montréalais Mathieu Connery a peint sur les trottoirs de la rue St-Laurent trois différentes pièces dans son style abstrait et géométrique. Pour l’édition 2014 du festival, ces dernières ayant été défraichies par l’hiver et la pluie, de nouvelles créations ont été peintes par dessus et sept nouvelles pièces ont été ajoutées le long de l’axe St-Laurent. Les photos aériennes dans la galerie ci-dessous sont © Vandalog. Celles prises au niveau du sol sont miennes.

This awkwardly named abandoned garage is found on the corner of Marie-Anne and St-Dominique. It offers therefore two walls for display, one on each of those two streets. It has been abandoned for a number of years now. It was put up for sale around 2007-2008 but apparently a buyer was never found. Expectedly, as it fell in a state of abandonment, it was gradually taken over by graffiti and tags. Then wheatpaste and sticker artists took over, making it one of the neighbourhood’s biggest open-air gallery for these artforms.

Photos of the garage in the spring of 2012 and the summer of 2014 can be viewed in the gallery below. In 2012 the garage only had a bit of graffiti and a few wheatpastes (by Stikki Peaches in this particular photo) while by 2014 most of its available surface had been taken over. New pieces appear on it every week from spring to autumn.

This photo gallery brings together shots of painted and pasted art taken between the summers of 2014 and 2016. Click on any image to see in full size.

Ce garage abandonné au nom bizarre est localisé au coin des rues Marie-Anne et St-Dominique, offrant conséquemment deux murs pour affichage. Il est fermé depuis plusieurs années. Il a été mis en vente vers 2007-2008, mais de toute évidence aucun acheteur ne s’y est intéressé. Il a été laissé à l’abandon et son état s’est graduellement détérioré. Avec la détérioration sont d’abord apparus les graffitis et les tags. Les artistes s’adonnant aux collages et autocollants sont ensuite arrivés en masse et en ont fait une de leur galleries préférées dans le quartier.

Des photos du garage prises au printemps 2012 et à l’été 2014 sont présentées en tête de la gallerie ci-dessous. On peut voir comment la situation a changé en deux ans: en 2012 on y trouvait des graffitis et quelques wheatpastes (en l’occurrence Stikki Peaches sur cette photo) mais en 2014 presque toute la surface disponible est utilisée. De nouvelles oeuvres y apparaissent à chaque semaine du printemps à l’automne.
