MURAL Festival on Boulevard Saint Laurent in Montreal

For 10 days each summer, the Canadian city of Montreal becomes a mecca for street artists and public art enthusiasts as one of the main thoroughfares in the city, Boulevard Saint Laurent, is transformed into a festival of epic proportions. Montreal’s MURAL Festival took place from June 9-19 this year. Throughout the week, 29 artists in total from all over the world created beautiful murals, participated in exhibitions, and displayed installations on the famous boulevard. Visitors to the festival had the opportunity to witness artists making murals in real time, attend musical events and seminars, enjoy a variety of outdoor exhibitions and installations, plus indulge in the glory that is Canadian gastronomy, aka poutine, on every corner.

“We are the merging point of creative spirits. We are the festive and innovative soul of a city burning with artistry. MURAL opens a portal to new artistic dimensions and unites the community around an authentic vision.” – Montreal MURAL Festival Mission

Sergey Kir: Conceptivism and the Art of Technology

Conceptivism.

No, this isn’t an art history term you don’t know. This is something entirely new.

Conceptivism is a new style of art that was coined by artist Sergey Kir. The style utilizes several different ideas and techniques taken from art history and recent technological advancements and creates a bridge between the old and the new. Incorporating computer digital design techniques, features of financial modeling, and a love for vivid color and art history, Conceptivism is the realization that contemporary art is changing.

Here, Sergey gives us insight into this monumental new art form.
