Mural Festival 2015
Photos: June 14, 2015
This is the third year that Montreal is holding a mural festival. St. Laurent, one of our major arteries has been closed for 11 days for several blocks with a combination muralfest, street festival and Fringe Festival. Some of the murals from previous years are still visible; others have been painted over.
It's fun to see the many different styles. Many seem to favour the slightly macabre. Sunday, the day of my walk, was the last day of the festival so most of the murals had been completed.
We did come across this work in progress. In the background is another mural.
Social commentary, abstract, cartoon - every style can be found as you walk the neighbourhood.
These are just a few of the many - it is a delight to tour the area.
Now if those graffiti ego trippers would leave these murals alone... No tagging, please!
