St. Laurent is truly a special street. A mixture of nightlife, art, food, and business culture, "The Main" earns its name for being the embodiment of all things awesome in Montreal. Now it's time to find out the 'who' behind the city's iconic strip. Inspired by Je vois mtl, a Montreal community devoted to changing perspectives on Montreal, SDBSL, the leaders of St. Laurent street, created a video showcasing the many minds that make The Main magical.
All the big players of St. Laurent street are featured, from LNDMRK to Schwartz's to SaintWoods, each giving their own perspective on Montreal's unique culture and their place within the community. Each interview gives you some insight into the folks who make St. Laurent street what it is, providing a behind-the-scenes perspective you would never see otherwise.
Check out the short video below, and be sure to head to Je vois mtl's website where you can vote for projects that will make Montreal even more amazing.
New York City better get ready for an injection of Montreal street art culture, colour, and style, as one of the city's most acclaimed street artists is taking over the Big Apple this weekend. Stikki Peaches, Montreal's acclaimed urban artist, with the help of Station 16, will be launching a surprise pop up exhibition in New York and will show the cosmopolitan metropolis just how amazing Montreal's art scene truly is.
You've probably seen Stikki Peaches' work all throughout the city, even if you didn't know it was his stuff. Stikki's style, a vibrant cultural mash-up of pop culture and political and historical figures/symbols is hard to miss. No doubt New Yorkers will be taken aback by Stikki Peaches's gritty yet oddly charming works at Station 16's pop up exhibition.
The temporary art gallery is to be set up in SoHo for five days, from September 25th to 29th. Only the new and original work of Stikki Peaches will be on display, the very first solo and international exhibition for the artist and Station 16. A major milestone for the artist and art gallery, but also one for Montreal itself, as the city's artistic influence is beginning to spread well beyond the island.
Any Montrealer in New York for the weekend can't miss this opportunity to see a Montreal street artist praised in another city, and anyone in New York owes it to their inner artistic critic to see Stikki Peaches stuff, as its undoubtedly a far cry from whatever else NYC artist are making. For a little taste of what's in store, check out some exclusive images of the NYC Stikki Peaches exhibition by Station 16 below.
