(English follows) Vingt artistes locaux et internationaux ont pris d’assaut les murs de Montréal le week-end dernier durant le Festival MURAL. Les 20 œuvres créées par ces artistes sur les murs du boulevard Saint-Laurent resteront en place jusqu’à l’an prochain, où elles cèderont leur place à de nouvelles murales.

J’ai eu la chance d’être présente lors de la première mouture du festival l’an dernier et j’ai adoré voir les artistes au travail. Le boulevard Saint-Laurent, à l’aspect parfois tristounet, en est grandement amélioré.

Si vous prévoyez une visite à Montréal bientôt, profitez du beau temps pour marcher sur Saint-Laurent et découvrir les murales.

Twenty local and international artists took the walls of Montreal by storm last weekend during Festival MURAL. The 20 artworks created by these artists on the walls of Saint-Laurent Boulevard’s buildings will remain there until the creation of new murals next year.

I attended the first edition of the festival last year and I loved observing the artists at work. Saint-Laurent Boulevard, which can be a bit gloomy, looks so much better now.

If you are planning to visit Montreal soon, take advantage of the warm weather to go for a stroll down Saint-Laurent to see the murals.

@kevinledo in action. The addition of gold leaves is out of this world!
