29-31 August 2008, Montreal (Canada)

A Three days of graffiti, avant-garde and celebration, presented by Yves Laroche Galerie d’art. Our local organisation has done a lot to present you a very special event with lots of attractions beside the live-painting. And they succeeded.

Live-Graffiti, parties, Art-Shows. The canadian MOS gave a detailed impression of whats going on over there. No wonder, the event started early. The locals arranged some really big walls in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles with animation on site and giveaways.

TRAINS OF THOUGHT @ Galerie d’art Yves Laroche, 4 St-Paul E. Old Montreal, QC H2Y 1G1, 6pm-9pm
Trains Of Thought was a new show that featured the most talented and fresh artists in the graffiti art field. The artists featured in this show have the most extensive history and talent in the graffiti community. They applied their skills to Giclee Trains that were exhibited in the show, and the subjects they chose were their original thoughts.

More than 60 Artists from New York City, Montreal, and all over the world were featured in this exhibit to school you! Painting a train has traditionally been something special to a graffiti writer, and is a phenomenon that is something to bare witness of.
The thoughts that are being laid onto these pieces of art were exceptional and some just sophisticatedly simple.

 

 

 

 

There were Installations, sculptures, paintings, photographs, sketches and studies, limited edition prints and products that will be available at this show.
