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.
Located on the famous Club Soda in the heart of Montreal’s Quartier des spectacles, this mural is made to look like a light projection on a wall. All the musicians depicted on the wall were choosen for their passion and intensity. We can see a fusion of rock and jazz music on this artwork. All of the musicians are painted with differents techniques and the pianist alone, is made of more than 100 000 paint dots. All the colors are choosen to be intense and electrifying.
