Montreal street art
View this Thread in Original format

For the past few weekends, I've been coming up to Montreal to search out street art. It's the kind of thing you see walking all around the city, but if you're looking for it, there's some real gems to be found tucked away in alleys and other weird spots. Many Montrealers will know that in June the first annual Mural festival took place that brought in international street artists as well as featuring the work of local talent. Here's a few pics from my recent adventures up there, please feel free to add pics of any you see around town :)

Two of my friends started the MURAL Festival earlier this summer along with two other guys, it's pretty much the same concept as Art Basel in Miami. All the work is located around St-Laurent between Sherbrooke and Mt-Royal.

Here is my album from the murals that were done that weekend.

The Our Lady Grace one is by far my favorite work in the city, and after much asking around for the location, I'm finally going to see that El Mac Mural you posted this weekend. I didn't hear about Mural until the day after it ended and I've been kicking myself ever since. I'm guessing one of your friends is Yan? I met him a couple weeks ago, super nice guy, and I'm really excited for some of the names he's talking about bringing for next year.

It's so much fun to rent a Bixie up there and go hunting around for street art on sunny days, I'm going to try to squeeze in as much time doing that as I can this summer. There's also a guy named Cam Novak who has been doing guided street art tours on bicycle every two weeks if anyone's interested. Look him up on fb, or join the Street art in Montreal fb page for more info located here
