#KWayCulture

Matt Feigin, President of K-Way North America and local Montrealer, took an interest in contemporary street art about two years ago when he first saw the work of Stikki Peaches. He contacted us at Station 16 to buy a piece, and his interest in contemporary street art has only grown since. He has become a small collector. He now owns pieces by Whatisadam, as well as a series by Peter Andrew & Derek Blais, purchased while at The Scope Art Fair in NYC.  Matt actually sponsored the renowned Instagram street art curators Instagrafite to join us in New York to cover Scope and the week in NYC. That visit led to a series of devoted Instagram posts called the K-Way Culture walk. Check them out on Instagram with #KWayCulture.

A Global Street Art Story: EGYPT

 

The latest edition of A Global Street Art Story bring us to Egypt with the print No to Stripping the People by Bahia Shehab. Resulting from the past and present turmoil in Egypt, the print is representative of the street art created during the country’s recent revolution. When protests and revolts filled the streets of Cairo in 2011, Shehab began spraying images of No in the streets: no to dictators, no to violence, no to injustice.

Enzo Sarto Cannot Be Stopped

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

There is an inherent shock value when viewing the work of Enzo Sarto. Executed in a clean and crisp manner, Sarto’s photographs highlight a deceptive innocence that demands attention. Although stating that his work “is about passions, prejudices, and fear,” a specific clarification, such as why a little girl wears a bandana around her face like a vandal and holds a gun as if she just committed murder, remains elusive. Politically and socially charged images infiltrate much of Sarto’s work, producing a dialogue that begs for an explanation.

 Murale à Barcelone, photo de Antoine Tavaglione

Après un relocalisation à Barcelone, l’artiste Montréalais Antoine Tavaglione (Tava) laisse sa marque dans les rues de la ville espagnole.

Les gens déménagent normalement pour une de deux raisons: le travail ou l'amour. Pour Tava, c’est une combinaison des deux. Avec une prochaine exposition solo à Copenhague, une collaboration des vêtements avec un designer à Dubaï, et d'autres projets d'illustration, Tava a également pris le temps de créé des oeuvres à Barcelone même. L'artiste décrit la ville comme "un bon terrain d'entente pour voyager à toutes ces destinations et de travailler en collaboration plus facilement avec les commissaires et clients.
