Lost Claws

Lost Claws is a street artist mainly into wheatpasting, but he also has some painted work to his credit. He has been active in the streets and alleys of Montreal since approximately June 2017. The artist wittily expresses his dark, pessimistic or sarcastic views on the world, life and relationships through various characters, some recurring (teeth, skeletons, Death) and some one-offs (often animals).

The artist is extremely prolific and I have been able to find only a fraction of his work before it got destroyed. You should therefore check out his Instagram page for a lot more work than what I am presenting in the gallery below.

Lost Claws est un artiste de rue dont le medium préféré est le collage, mais qui peint aussi à l’occasion. Il est actif dans les rues et ruelles de Montréal depuis approximativement juin 2017. A l’aide d’une panoplie de personnages, certain récurrents (dents, squelettes, la Mort) ou non (souvent des animaux), il exprime sa vision sombre, pessimiste ou sarcastique, du monde, de la vie et des relation humaines.

Cet artiste est extremement prolifique et je n’ai eu la chance de photographier qu’une fraction de son oeuvre avant qu’elle ne soit détruite. Vous êtes donc invités à jeter un coup d’oeil à sa page Instagram si vous voulez en voir beaucoup plus que ce que je suis en mesure de présenter dans la galerie ci-dessous.
