Street Art In Montreal

I have a confession to make.

I’m obsessed with street art…I’ve become an art junkie!

I can’t exactly recall when it started but I’ve seen amazing creations during my travels.

Since the beginning of the year, I have ventured out in my own backyard and discovered some true gems.

This form of urban art not only adds beauty to public spaces but brings back life to the areas where they are found!

What I love about it is the fact that it’s open for interpretation, therefore making the viewer or art lover, an active participant.

It has become such an important part of the culture that even a Mural Festival was held back in June and drew artists from all over the world. It is definitely here to stay 😉

Let me show you the colorful and spectacular Street Art in Montreal.

The earth without art would be EH. Montreal has many amazing murals and colorful creations that you can literally go on a tour around the city to capture them. Here you will find some of the best street art in Montreal. Enjoy!

      Thank you!

      Yeah Back to the future was a great find and pleasant surprise 😉 It’s one of my fav movie trilogy.

      Ah how to forget Rubik’s cube ha ha we all had one right?

      Thanks for stopping by 😉

    • traveller soul says:

      Well i’ve heard and seen great photos taken with the iphone. Have you played around with it?

      I also use this great photo app called Camera 360, the results are amazing, as you saw in this post!

      It’s true that there may be more here but pay attention where you live 😉

      Let me know if you find any!

      Thank you for visiting 😉

    I walked Montreal all summer to get pictures of as many murals as possible. I came across those you posted. I wonder if we ever crossed paths looking for THE mural that nobody would know of 😉 ! Great work and Thanks for sharing.

    • traveller soul says:

      That’s great to know that you’re also a fan of street art.

      Honestly i came across some of them by pure coincidence, for instance Back to the Future. I was driving to Marche Maisonneuve & when i saw it i had to stop!

      The latest I found, Our lady of Grace & boy with toys were amazing finds (both are in NDG).

      As for those on the main well they are well known.

      I’m always on the lookout when I’m out walking or driving!

      If you found some i’ve not seen let me know.

      Merci de visiter 😉

      • Gerald Cote says:

        I’m sure you have more than those you posted… right ?
        If not, trust me, there are so many more all over the city and I’m not talking about the ones on the Main. How about “Les Filles du Roy” inaugurated on September 23rd, (600, rue Dublin/Wellington) ? You need to see those at Les Habitations Jeanne-Mance (6 of them) on Maisonneuve just east on St-Laurent. Have fun !
        P.S. I go by bus, I get off when I see one and get on the next bus … I’m addicted lol 😉 !

      • traveller soul says:

        Of course I’ve more pics of murals on my phone.

        I recently saw one near Jean-Talon Station (Italian Center) & there is one downtown done by a South African artist. Must go back to capture them!

        Thank you for letting me know about Les Filles du Roy & Jeanne-Mance!

        Happy street art hunting 😉
