Thursday Doors: Art Du Commun

Actually bad graffiti is not that uncommon, but if you like murals and street art Montreal will not disappoint you. What we have here, is pretty remarkable. In 2013 Montreal hosted its first festival of public art:  Mural. It was a big success and has been back every summer since. This year it will be held form June 9-19th.

If you look-up www.artducommun.com you will come to the conclusion that they are not responsible for the bad graffiti on their back door.  Artducommun is a collective of professional artists that specializes in murals.

This post is part of the Thursday Doors Challenge, hosted by Norm 2.0.

Molson

If I say Molson, you are probably thinking “beer” or of our hockey team the “Montreal Canadiens”.

As far as cemeteries go,  Notre-Dame-Des-Neiges Cemetery is a wonderful one. I was there last Sunday on a photography outing with some friends. One never knows when a door will show its face kind of saying: “Wouldn’t I be a good one for Norm’s Thursday Doors?”

While strolling through the massive site, I came across the family tomb of the Honorable John Molson. Therefore I decided to part from my usual grungy/graffiti style this week to share my finding with you.

 

Stop that train

Everywhere I go, I find myself looking for different, yet interesting doors. Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors challenge occupies a permanent place in my brain. He must be  pretty pleased about that.

While on an early morning walk in southern Florida, that train caught my eye. A train with graffiti on it; I like it. It must have a door?  You can’t have a train without a door. I needed to get closer to see. I don’t know much about trains. Two days later we walked by again and this time I went up close… Bingo! I found multiple doors. Here are a few that I am pleased to share with you.
