Artducommun was founded by Simon Bachand and Jasmin Guérard-Alie in 2006. The Montreal-born art collective is uniting professional artists with over 15 years of experience with murals. Using innovative techniques and a bold sense of imagination, the artists are constantly searching for new and unique ways to approach each creation. Their pieces are designed to integrate into their environments while respecting, incorporating, and enriching the existing architecture. Artducommun’s creative process takes into consideration the history and experience of a work’s location. The positioning of each mural thus creates a space for social interaction, while offering passersby a original and timeless visual experience.
The wall is part of the project La Belle Dame, a representation of historical events in Lachine. This work represents a historical street in Lachine, where we found : the stone shed in 1803 ; the Lachine canal built in 1825 with expansions in 1848 and 1875 ; the Maison du Brasseur in 1862 ; the Saint-Anges church built in 1865 (demolished in 1915 and rebuilt in 1919-1920).
