As it was my second visit to Montreal, I was looking forward to seeing new artwork on the walls and how some hoods I visited before had evolved since. It was incredible!! Montreal is more a ‘graffiti’ city – I mean there are a lot of huge murals painted rather than little street art pieces. I love street art, but I am definitely amazed by artists doing big-big pieces on cool buildings’ walls.
Two weeks ago I traveled to Montreal in Canada for work and I enjoyed the fact I was staying in a nice neighborhood to do a street art tour around the city. I went to Montreal 6 years ago and I really enjoyed my first trip. What I remember is that the city was full of graffiti artwork – huge pieces!
Street art is by nature a ‘non permanent art form’ that can be removed in a couple of minutes only. It can also last longer. More than 5k art pieces have been photographed in high resolution by Google for the Street Art Project. In Paris, Bogota, New-York, Lisbon…
Shoreditch is really the place to hang out when you look for street art in London – not only for street art I should say as I love the energy and the cool places it is possible to find. Again, all is on my travel blog: ReverDailleurs.com
To begin 2014, the artist Mimi the Clown did ‘Le MUR’ in the 11th district of Paris. Shitty day, but Mimi the Clown put up a nice piece on the wall, visible until the 22nd of February.
For the first article of the year, we wanted to wish you a Happy StreetLove New Year and send you our best wishes for 2014!
According to the previous article related to more photos on the ‘Tour Paris 13′ street art exhibition in Paris, here is a last showcase of photos we found in the building. It’s not all… but you will have a nice overview if you missed the opportunity to take a tour when it was open (in October 2013) and I totally understand as there was hours of queue before getting in…
With a bit of delay, but hey, better late than never, we wanted to show you more from the biggest street art exhibition in Paris – Tour Paris 13.
I don’t know if the tower has been destroyed as planned – did not check – but here are below more photos of the murals done by artists in each of the apartments – amazing artwork!
Birdy Kids is a kind of non-identified object that you can’t miss in the Marais… and they are celebrating their first exhibition in Paris at the Oeil Ouvert gallery. Enjoy!
On the 16th of September, we went to 5 Fulton street, in the 13th district of Paris to attend an exclusive preview of an abandonned building called Tour Paris 13.
SETH took part in 2013 in the event Les Lézards de la Bièvre and painted a huge mural in Paris 13th. SETH started doing graffiti in the 90′s before travelling the world.
I walked a lot around the city of Ales, South of France to finally found a lot of street art artwork, such as Bastek, MissTIC, Zago, and cool stencils.
Better than never, we were in contact with Bust art for having seen a few art pieces on the Paris streets that we loved, and as you know, time flies… so I now publish his interview we did a while ago. We saw him again at the great event of the MUR for its 5th [...]
After having showed you street art around Shoreditch in London, these are a few photos of another artistic area in London: Brick Lane, East London.
London is very famous for street art and it’s easy to find out artwork from foreigners in the areas of Shoreditch and Brick Lane.
