Under Pressure Festival 2013

The Under Pressure festival brings together street artists with DJs, dance crews, B-boys and B-girls and skaters in one big interdisciplinary event. The official festival zone is Ste-Catherine and Boisbriand streets between St-Dominique and Ste-Elisabeth, including cross streets.

All the graffiti and other works displayed in the image gallery below are from the 2013 edition of the festival and do not exist anymore, as the walls are repainted in black every year to make space for new pieces. For subsequent editions see the following posts:
2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014 editions.

For more information on the festival’s programme, indoors exhibits, concerts and shows, etc, check out the Under Pressure webpage.

Le festival Under Pressure est un événement artistique multidisciplinaire réunissant ‘sous un même toit’ des artistes visuels, des DJs, des breakdancers, des skaters, etc. La zone officielle du festival couvre les rues Ste-Catherine et Boisbriand entre St-Dominique et Ste-Elisabeth, avec les rues transversales.

Les graffitis et autres oeuvres à l’affiche dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous sont de l’édition 2013 du festival. Ils n’existent plus parce que les murs sont repeints en noir à chaque année pour faire place à de nouvelles créations. Pour les éditions subséquentes, voir les articles suivants:
Éditions 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014.

Waxhead

It’s almost impossible to find a back alley between Avenue du Parc and St-Denis without something painted or drawn by Waxhead on some wall or door. Big colourful murals are interspersed with smaller, quickly drawn figures. But his work is not all underground, as a good amount of commissioned art can also be found on storefronts and walls of Plateau/Mile End businesses.

It’s also almost impossible to walk the length of a street between Parc and St-Denis without finding at least a handful or two of stickers with the art of Waxhead on them. Two different types of stickers can actually be found. The stickers of the first type usually are post office forms or “Hello My Name Is” labels with small variations of his usual characters drawn or painted over them. Some are in black and white, others are in colour. Because they are not mass-printed, each one encountered is a unique creation.

The stickers of the other type appear to be printed but this doesn’t mean that they are less original, to the contrary. They actually are my favorites. They show small reproductions of old black and white or sepia-toned photos on which Waxhead re-did in his own recognizable style the head of one or some characters. In some cases he has added new colourful characters to the ones already found in the black and white original. This fusion (or should I say clash) of very stiff old-fashioned photos with the crazy world of Waxhead is never boring, sometimes funny or freaky and always makes me wish for a larger version.

This Main MTL interview from 2013 lets us inside Waxhead’s head. A bit of Waxhead at work can see seen in this trailer for a film on the Montreat street art scene that never came to be. You can also see a lot of Waxhead’s art on his Instagram and Flickr pages.

Il est impossible de trouver entre l’avenue du Parc et la rue St-Denis une ruelle sans oeuvre peinte ou dessinée par Waxhead. Les grandes murales très colorées y alternent avec des dessins effectués rapido. Son art n’est pas seulement underground, puisque des pièces commandées se trouvent aussi sur les devantures et murs latéraux de plus d’un commerce du Plateau ou de Mile End.

Il est aussi impossible de marcher le long d’une des artères du même quartier sans y trouver un autocollant créé par Waxhead. L’artiste produit en fait deux types d’autocollant. Ceux du premier type sont habituellement des formulaires postaux ou des étiquettes “Bonjour mon nom est” sur lesquels a été dessiné ou peint un des personnages typiques de Waxhead. Certains sont en noir et blanc tandis que d’autres sont en couleur. Puisque ceux-ci n’ont pas été imprimés commercialement, chacun est unique.

Les stickers du second type sont imprimés, mais ceci ne veut pas nécessairement dire qu’ils sont moins originaux, bien au contraire. Ce sont en fait mes préférés. On y voit d’anciennes photos en noir et blanc ou dans des tons sepia sur lesquelles les têtes des personnages ont été repeintes par Waxhead, dans son style inimitable et coloré. Dans certains cas l’artiste a même ajouté de ses personnages colorés à ceux qui figurent déjà dans la photo. Cette rencontre entre le style rigide des photos anciennes et le monde coloré de Waxhead n’est jamais ennuyante. Le résultat est en fait souvent drôle ou déconcertant. En fait à chaque fois que je découvre un nouveau sticker de ce type, ma seule déception est de ne pas être en mesure de voir l’image en plus grand.

Pour un peu d’information sur les origines de Waxhead et sur sa vision du street art, vous êtes invités à visionner cette entrevue pour Main MTL faite en 2013. On peut aussi voir un peu de Waxhead en action dans cette bande-annonce pour un documentaire sur la scène montréalaise du street art qui n’a jamais vu le jour. En plus de la galerie d’images ci-dessous, il est possible de voir une très grande quantité d’oeuvres de Waxhead sur ses pages Instagram et Flickr.

Sun Youth prod

As the 2016 Mural Festival was kicking off, a bunch of mostly local artists were invited by Waxhead to participate in a major production on the front wall of the Sun Youth building. The work that was done is striking, but the other great thing about it is that it brought together street artists and graffiti writers. Only sections involving Waxhead are shown here. To view to complete prod, see the bottom of this post.

Alors que se tenait l’édition 2016 du Festival Mural, une douzaine d’artistes surtout locaux étaient invités par Waxhead à contribuer à une production majeure sur le mur de devant de l’édifice logeant Jeunesse Au Soleil. L’oeuvre globale qui en résulte est extraordinaire, mais elle se démarque aussi par son mélange de pièces figuratives et de graffitis. Seules les sections impliquant Waxhead sont présentées ici. Pour voir l’ensemble de cette production, voir cet article.
