CANADA: Streetart Montréal – Laurent Gascon’s fabulous Mosaic Series – Canada’s Finest

LAURENT LORENZO GASCON is a great artist from Montréal who did a lot of fantastic urban artworks throughout the city and the country. He was born in 1949 in Montréal and was active in several collectives and part of many creative projects. In 1971 he founded the “Murality Squad” with their aim to bring art down to the streets. In 1976 he was a participant at Corrid’art and worked on different mediums in the 80’s and 90’s till he ended up creating very personal ceramics and mosaics. In his art GASCON has managed to combine the two areas of ceramics and urban art and creates urban ceramic art or street mosaics, so to speak. He created his first objects in the Dominican Republic in 2000, the first mosaic mural in Montréal was done in 2009. During the years many special artworks dedicated to famous Canadian icons from the art and culture scene like singers, actors, writers or humorists followed. Here we have gathered the 13 existing pieces of this series in Montréal which are mostly located at Rue Ontario. You can easily have a nice art walk from one to the other.
