After spending the winter in what I’m now referring to as Hibernia (a.k.a my house) , I decided it was probably time to venture out into this great big world of ours to see if anything of interest was going on besides Rob Ford’s crack addiction. Today’s adventures led me to a part of town that, to be quite blunt, used to be a shit hole. The southern part of Montreal has been undergoing gentrification over the last few years, and it’s shaping up to be the next big thing (read: trendy area in which to live and/or open a restaurant). As I randomly wandered from street to street, I came across some great art that I thought I’d share here instead of on Instagram because let’s face it – this blog ain’t been getting no love lately. So… check – check – check – check -check it out! What – what – what – what’s it all about? C’mon on now, sing it!
What did the fox say? Or maybe that should be wolf?
This past June, MURAL hosted an event that allowed both local and international graffiti artists to spray Montreal’s main drag red (or any other color of their choosing) across 2 km, and over a period of four days. I finally found the time to head over to Saint-Laurent Boulevard to see what all the fuss was about, and snapped a few pics along the way. By clicking on the above link, you can find out more about the artists who participated in the MURAL festival, as well get a map that calls out where the murals are located.
