Montreal in the top global cities to see street art

Montreal is a city of artists, and unlike most places, we don’t like to keep our art exclusively in museums. Instead, we take it to the streets and plaster it all over the city.

The best part of Montreal street art is that it is constantly evolving. Every year, MuralFest adds a few more pieces and replaces a few of the older ones, turning the city into one giant art gallery that everyone can enjoy.

The murals are easy to spot and mixed in with the popular boutiques, shops and restaurants.

Tags, burners, throw-ups, murals, stencils, and wheat pastes — they’re just some of the many types of guerilla urban art that can be found around the city.
