La Famille, #offmuralfest

"La Famille" is a collaborative mural created during the pop up #offmuralfest that coincided with Montreal's 2015 Mural Festival. The project was led by Kevin Ledo who wanted to collaborate with twelve other artists from around the globe. While lying in the park one day, staring at the sky, he imagined how he could bring all the different styles together, that's when the "Family Portrait" was born.

I am finally getting around to blogging from all that's happened this summer. This blog is all about the happenings outside of our kitchen window. There was a wall, a blank wall that my girlfriend was tired of looking at. When Mural Fest was approaching in June, my girlfriend had a chat with Romero about the wall & asked if he would consider letting some artists do it up. He gave a huge nod & didn't stop there, he helped out, got scaffolding, gave them beer and bbq food. Thank you Farah & Romero for getting the ball rolling on this project.

Thank you to all the artists that made this wall possible. They came from all over the world to leave their mark outside our window. We wake up to your beautiful art every morning.

Here is a link to a short video of happenings of the mural over 5 days.
