Montreal has become a hub for graffiti, murals, and urban art. It seems that almost every building and walls are decorated with gigantic works of art, giving a vibrant and colourful personality to the city. Luckily, you don’t need to search for hidden alleys or rooftops to catch urban art, in fact, it is the contrary as they are everywhere.
The Saint-Laurent Boulevard, one of Montreal’s busiest street, is where you will find the most graffiti and murals. All you need to do is, stroll down the street and hunt these gems. The boulevard is full of vintage shops and local eateries serving smoked meat, a Montreal signature dish. If Schwartz's has a big line-up, you can go across the street, the Main restaurant serves an even better smoked meat that Schwartz's !
If you are visiting the city in June, you must go to the Mural festival. The event showcases more than 80 artists and it is the biggest street art festival in North America. In August, there is also the Under-Pressure festival also shining a light on urban art. During these two festivals, you can catch an artist in action and see how the murals come to life.
A parallel street to Saint-Laurent, Rue Saint-Dominique, has countless graffiti as well. I would suggest to go up on Saint-Laurent and then go down to Saint-Dominique, if you are planning to do a full loop. Don't forget to stroll on Saint-Urban street (2 streets away from Saint-Laurent) for some rare findings!
