“Montreal is the fucking Mecca. Nobody here is pretentious.”
Montreal is home to many urban art leagues, nurturing the street movements that characterize the city. Among these is Beaux Dégâts, hosting various events throughout the year. The most recent of these, “Beaux Dégâts 47” consisted of five teams of artists, challenged to create a mural incorporating a classical composer and a famous rap album. The teams were given about 4 hours to complete the task. From 9pm to 1am on Wednesday April 26th, Les Foufounes Electriques filled with spectators sipping beer to the beat of 90s hip hop.
