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!
