CANADA: Streetart Montréal – Lachine – 1005 Rue Notre Dame – ART DU COMMUN

I want to ride my bicycle…

Lachine is well known for its beautiful bike paths along the river and the Lachine Canal. The ART DU COMMUN guys wanted to highlight this fact in this mural from the historical series. We can see, among other things, on the mural, the Saint-Anges church built in 1865 and which still exists today. She proudly sits on Saint-Joseph Boulevard in Lachine. This great mural with a historical flavor is part of a series that chronicles the life of the neighborhood and the merchants of Rue Notre Dame in Lachine. This street is still one of the major commercial axes of the Lachine borough located west of downtown Montreal. The murals were all made by an artist duo called ART DU COMMUN and this collective consists of Montreal artists JASMIN GUÉRARD ALIE and SIMON BACHAND who regularly team up for colorful urban creations. The project aims to embellish and energize Rue Notre Dame. It also recalls the village past of this area long away from the city. –  Patrice Loranger
