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. The Dominion Bridge Company specializes in the manufacture of superstructure decks and buildings in iron and steel. The company will become the symbol for the industrial era in Lachine, his coming will promote the arrival of the tramway in Lachine and would also be responsible of a new housing project, the Dominion project (the forerunner of the Provost neighborhood).
