ASHOP PRODUCTIONS is a street art production and artists management agency based in Montreal. Now internationally renowned, it is the result of the work and dedication of the ASHOP CREW, which has managed to ensure the success and growth of the company for 10 years now. Its mission is to produce large-scale public art projects and highlight the talent of the artists they represent. To this day, ASHOP has at its disposal creative spaces and produces as many murals as custom art projects in several international cities, such as Montreal, Toronto, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris, and Hong Kong.
This mural was painted as a hommage to the Cote-Des-Neiges neighborhood. As a ode to this vibrant area’s name, huge snowflakes decorate the background of the mural. A graceful woman, symbolizing the guardian of time and the winter season, holds a snow globe which contains architectural references to the area, such as the St. Joseph observatory and the Université de Montreal. The squirrel, a resourceful local critter, reminds us that in times of cold it is better to stock up on supplies. After all, the future is in our hands, just like the snow globe nestled in our guardians icy palms. The mural was designed and executed by : Dodo Ose, Earth Crusher and Zek One.
