Labrona

Montreal graffiti artist, Labrona is known as one of the top one hundred street artists in the world. His work illustrates typical “Labrona-esque” characters : multi-colored faces defined by dark features. Inspired by 80′s skate culture, rundown industrial areas, and german’s expressionism, his work comes from his fascination and his desire to convey raw human’s emotions.

Artwork description

The objective of the mural created by graffiti artist Labrona is to brighten up the grey columns and ceiling of the Jarry metro station’s entrance. In fact, rejuvenating the dull and imposing concrete architecture of this transit hub through artistic means reasserts its importance as a cornerstone of the neighborhood. The mural depicts typical Labrona-esque characters, in keeping with the Villeray community values : family, diversity, inclusion, tolerance, helping other and respect for the environment. To complete this mural, the artist had to lay down and paint on his back, a veritable Michael Angelo ! This mural project is part of the borough’s long-term vision of beautification through mural arts, a strategy that MU has been contributing to since 2007.
