Artwork description

This artwork was commissioned by the AMT from the A’Shop artists’ collective to reduce risks of accidents due to intrusion by graffiti artists onto the train tracks. The “controlled” fresco projects demonstrate that this type of initiative is appreciated and respected by young graffiti artists.

Using the AMT logo’s blue and the theme of the railway, this artwork 30 metres long by 3.5 metres high spreads across the three parts of the concrete structure erected near the train tracks. It includes a tribute to the history of the railway in Griffintown and the Montréal West train station, and references to the movements of users and the trajectory of the commuter train.
