Over the last week artists from all over the world converged on the beautiful city of Montreal to participate in this year’s Mural Festival. In its third year of production, Mural Festival aims to include the top muralists from around the world as well the best local talent, and they do quite a fine job of it. You can see from all the final products that everyone brought their best with them to Canada.
19 New Murals Created During Montreal’s Mural Festival
All the artists were in great spirits the entire time. A little rain may have washed out a few days but overall the weather was great for painting and everyone was able to finish up in time with no problems at all. I can’t say how much great vibes amongst the artists, press, organizers, and public helps a festival. When everyone paints and parties together you always get some amazing results! After a week of walking the streets of Montreal, I am sad to leave but I have a feeling I will be seeing a lot of people here down in Miami and then of course in about a year from now up here for Mural Festival 2016!
