CANADA: Streetart Montréal – Quartier Latin – 81 Boulevard de Maisonneuve – PHILLIP ADAMS

Cessez le Feu  –  Cease Fire

This great mural called “Cessez-le-feu” or in English “Cease Fire” was created in 2016 and curated by MU. The artist PHILLIP ADAMS was assisted by ANGEL EZEQUIEL HERRERA LOPEZ and STÉPHANIE HAREL during the execution of the project. It is locatied at the “Les habitations Jeanne-Mance”. Check out as well the other close by murals of this artwork series.

The building complex was built in 1961 when the city of Montreal had observed for a decade, following a commission responsible for studying the quality of housing in the city, a marked deterioration in the quality and sanitation of the rental stock. At the time, the project had caused a stir and sowed controversy. Some saw it favorably on a social level, others thought that it would slow down the development of downtown Montreal by grabbing land in very good locations. The supporters of the project won and construction took place. At the end of the 1990s, the site had become badly known. Poverty, drug trafficking, violence raged there. From 2006, a vast renovation plan for the complex, combined with greening the sector and the installation of leisure infrastructure, changed the situation. The murals presented are part of the artistic component of this effort to restore vigor and appeal to the sector. These initiatives have work and the neighborhood is once again peaceful and pleasant to the delight of residents.  –  Patrice Loranger
