Wall to Wall in Montreal

It makes sense that Montreal would have a vibrantly quirky street art scene, seeing as it’s the home of comic and graphic novel publisher Drawn & Quarterly. And while we’re not normally fans of the genre—too many Shephard Fairey nightmares, the lamely commercialized façade of the Houston/Bowery mural wall in New York, etceteras—we have to admit that this Quebec city does it right.

Here are a selection of favorite pieces we spotted recently—a few of them clustered around a parking lot on Saint Laurent, and part of an initiative that invited international talent to aesthetically vandalize the walls. (And we couldn’t resist including a passionate piece of anti-hippy graffiti we found on a side street, which features what’s either a linguistic pun or a truly marvelous typo.)
