Graffiti artists of the West Island and Montreal rejoice, Cugino Boutique now gives you access to products and paints available nowhere else. Only stocked with the highest quality ingredients, Cugino Boutique is sure to be the newest, and best, provider for graffiti artists on and off the island of Montreal.
Open since May of this year, Cugino Boutique seeks to show customers legal venues for graffiti and fill a void in quality paints and products. With years of experience in graffiti, the owners of Cugino Boutique found a lack of high quality supplies available in the area and took it upon themselves to open their own shop, with its own vibe, attitude, and services.
Taking pride in selling only the highest quality products, Cugino Boutique sells Krink and On the Run Markers. Cugino Boutique is also the only place in Montreal to find Kobra spray paint, a very high quality Italian product. Owner and operator Vincenzo DeFrancesco challenges customers to come and try out the quality of Kobra paint, as they only way to experience its quality is to use it yourself.
For those unskilled in graffiti, Cugino Boutique offers a mural service for anyone seeking to add a touch of artistic flair to their building. They also sell SoYou clothes, an integral aspect to Cugino's desire to create a grafitti lifestyle in the Montreal area. Even if you don't fancy yourself a graffiti artist, Cugino still has major appeal.

Azar Jazestani, the owner of Principal Planner and Maison Principal on rue du Couvent in Saint-Henri, says she discovered graffiti including a homophobic slur on the building's front door on Tuesday morning.
Jazestani posted a picture of the graffiti in a neighbourhood Facebook group, whose members universally condemned the alleged vandalism in the comments.

CTV News linked a videoon their Facebook page where you see a crew of presumably showered hippies dancing and vandalizing the gazebo with "inspiring" pieces of wisdom such as "Fuck it!!! Let's get wasted!!!"
Apparently officers stepped in to stop them but not after they covered the floor with crappy drawings.
Each one is unique and decorated in different way. Some look like badges, some have slogans like "Go les vadg!", one is wearing a crown for some reason, and one of them can only be described as a "vagina poutine".
But this isn't some senseless act of vandalism, it actually has a very noble purpose in mind. For years the most popular go-to way to deface any poster or portrait is to draw a dick on it, but now these noble, mysterious crusaders are evening out the playing field.
The public seems to be divided on this issue. Some people think it's hilarious, while others choose to tear them down on sight.
