ASHOP PRODUCTIONS is a street art production and artists management agency based in Montreal. Now internationally renowned, it is the result of the work and dedication of the ASHOP CREW, which has managed to ensure the success and growth of the company for 10 years now. Its mission is to produce large-scale public art projects and highlight the talent of the artists they represent. To this day, ASHOP has at its disposal creative spaces and produces as many murals as custom art projects in several international cities, such as Montreal, Toronto, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris, and Hong Kong.
This themed mural depicts the natural environment of Lake Saint-Louis, as well as the types of activities practiced at the Pointe-Claire Canoe Club. Originally a water pumping station, the building that features the mural is now used by the Canoe Club as a storage facility. Dynamic nautical imagery, featuring a changing point of view that floats above the surface and dives beneath the waves, is splashed onto the unique spiral structure. On the façade, a kayaker and a paddler are seen in peaceful surroundings through an underwater perspective. On the circular wall, a canoer slices through the moving waters where the lake comes to life on both sides with swimming fish and a dog diving underwater to catch a ball. When it was created, the entire work of art was the biggest mural created by the A’Shop collective.
