Montréal

One of my favourite things about the immensely cultural city of Montréal is the sheer amount of graffiti and street art on almost every street. I took the below photograph the second night that I was in the city and honestly, if it wasn’t so early in the pictures, I might have completely over-looked it because I took so many pictures of the fabulous art lining the buildings around town. Many of the images are closer to a massive canvas painting rather than graffiti, so to call it anything but art would be an injustice. No matter whether you’re into visual arts such as painting, drawing, sculpting, photography, or any other type of art like music, theater, or dance… Montréal is the place to be in the summer time!

On the streets of Montréal, a common sight is the graffiti, street art and paintings that line the many buildings. This was a parking lot, which is where you are likely to find images closer to graffiti. On the sides of restaurants or stores, especially on corners to alleys, you’ll see the more artistic and canvas style images.

Dublin

Along my travels, I’ve seen and capture much street art, especially on the island of Ireland, both in the Republic of and the Northern area. In Dublin, I took a photograph of this bit of art and I love the way it turned out, with the sharp detail and stark contrast.

Dublin street art in late August of 2011.
