As a practitioner of Graffiti art, Stare is renowned for his innovative and versatile style. His work depicts a stirring chemistry between adventurous color schemes and electrifying effects, overlayed onto the architecture of his organized lettering, both imposing and graceful. With a hardened style to call his own, Stare has literally marked the face of Montreal’s urban scenery.
He is involved in the creation of major murals that are considered indispensable in Montreal’s urban scenery. Defying the techniques and methods commonly observed in traditional mural painting, Stare’s murals are made to integrate with the surrounding environment while always respecting, incorporating and, ultimately, enriching the existing architecture.
The mural evokes a rather universal concept, Stare says: “Although we live in a world dominated by extremes and contradictions, it is always possible to find a balance when our heart and good intentions guide our actions. In this way, life has proved to me over and over that when we align our spirit, our eyes, our heart, our convictions, our physical strength, and our perseverance, synchronicity will guide us to realizing our dreams and visions.”
