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 artists of the ArtduCommun collective delved into in the Pointe-Claire history archives for inspiration to create a mural that combines visual representations of different eras. The omnipresence of Lake Saint-Louis, which acts as a common thread here, reiterates the importance of water in the local history. The nautical village and agricultural scenes are highlighted snippets of the collective memory.
