STREET ART IN MONTREAL 21

Summer in Montreal is such a wonderful thing to experience! The streets of this city are filled with art. Wherever you go, you have the chance to see some amazing artworks.

The walls of the Montreal have seen many artists working alone or joining others to create new delightful murals. What I covered in the past twenty posts does not even scratch the surface of the iceberg!

Whenever I stumble upon a new mural, I am asking myself the same questions:

Why the artist chose a mural over a canvas? Isn't he bothered by the fact that it might get destroyed or vandalized? Doesn't he care about the outcome of his creation? What drives him to spend time and money (on the art supplies) just to see his masterpiece up on the wall for a short period of time only?

Murals have a short lifespan. Especially those painted on the legal walls. Sometimes they don't last more than 48 hours, as other hands more or less skilled will claim the wall as their canvas.

I really marvel at the way the artists can visualise and draw on a wall and some just with a spray can. I like the one with the oriental lady!

It is located at the entrance in Chinatown and it does make you feel like you are entering into another realm. ;0)

I'm not sure that I could pick a favorite I mean every street artist has their own story and why they painted what they painted.

If you had to force my hand I would have to say that the third one really Charmed the socks off me. There's just something erotic and unusual about it. The fourth one brings me to a happy place so I really like that one for that aspect of it. I do like when they integrate the theme into Community as opposed to just putting up a piece of their work.

Thank you for showing off Montreal and the many aspects of their art in the streets. I have to admit that I do pay more attention to street art than I used to, but long ago and far away the only thing you could look forward to was graffiti. We've come a long way baby!

Such cool art!!

The third one was is my favourite too! I was so close to pass by without noticing it, as it is on a side wall. I stopped to tie my son's shoes laces and he is the one who saw it first. Funny thing is that we were just talking about gods and demi gods when we found this mural. Perfect timing!

I like the very first one @lymepoet. I think it's a great idea telling a story with wall murals!
