It is with great pleasure and pride that we announce the fourth edition of Meeting Of Styles Montreal, a event celebrating the 30th anniversary of legendary New York City based crew, The Cool 5ive (TC5).

Art collectors and followers of this creative culture are welcomed to join us in Montreal from September 4th to 6th 2009. On September 4th at 5pm, at 251 St-Catherine East (Underworld Shop), The official TC5 30th anniversary artshow will open in Montreal. Selected, exclusive and original paintings by crew members will be on display. As the project is primarily an online artshow, the works will be availble on www.TC5-30.com. The crew has none the less accepted to hold an exclusive opening with us, here in Montreal.

For the occasion, fifteen members of the collective has confirmed their presence. This is a unique opportunity for clients, fans and peers to meet and exchange.

New York, during the mid-1980′s, was an amazing time for graffiti writers. Trains were an open canvas and styles were running in abundance. TC-5 was one of the main crews at the forefront of this thriving graffiti scene. Crew president SEEN shaped the crew with some of the freshest writers of his generation such as BEAM, JUICE, DOZE, DOC, LADY PINK, as well as expanding the crew primarily from the Bronx into a true All-City force. TC-5 rocked the number and letter lines hard with some of the freshest cars pulled out on the NYC Subway system, and has continued to push the boundaries of contemporary letter and character styles over the past 30 years.

Meeting of Styles Montréal – Interview

Bombing Science: Give us a little history of the MOS events in Montréal.

Louis: This year will be the 4th edition of Meeting Of Styles Montreal. It started in 2006 when my uncle Criz156, who had started painting on the regular again after moving to Montreal, heard from the international Meeting Of Styles crew that they would be interested in getting down in Montreal. Criz was painting all kinds of burners with Zeck in 05-06 in Montreal, and had started a Montreal chapter for the 156Allstarz crew just months before, with the blessing of O.G. JonOne of course.
