Street-Art Doors from the Plateau 

Back in Montréal’s Plateau Mont-Royal borough this week to look at some of the rather funky graffiti/street-art doors I captured on a recent doorscursion.

This is two-for-one special and somehow I don’t think that bike is gong anywhere until spring:


On the march…


This one is more about the street-art, but it is book-ended by doors, right?





Yes there is a door in there…


And there as well…


I probably should have been paying closer attention to the fly 😉


Going up – going down.


Awwwwe….cute 😀


Explosion at the Crayola factory perhaps?


I hope you enjoyed, and as always I thank you for stopping by.

    Norm, I think I am remiss in not stopping by last week. I apologize and am not sure what happened!
    Thank you for sharing amazing, colorful and fun mural art on doors and walls. The second set of chicks and hen made the wall look like a blue garage! I liked the lady who appeared to be Marie Antoinette trying to get out behind a gate or fence, the soldier is climbing on top of a broken crate, I believe. Montreal has a vivid imagination!! 🙂
    Unfortunately, my WP or my wacky self to blame, my doors post came out on Wednesday. Another I am sorry and hope to shape up and use my brain better! Smiles, Robin

  5. I recognize several of the murals from our visit to Montreal last June! It seemed that we saw them just about everywhere we looked. I love the color and the creativity.

    Hmm that’s quite a counterintuitive yet clever way to hide/disguise a door – paint something extravagant and eye-catching all over and all around it!

      Thanks. I’d almost like to go back and re-shoot that one. I was stick between the sidewalk and some parked cars behind me which made it hard to get everything into the shot.
      Glad you liked it though 🙂

    I think they’re all wonderful. It’s nice to see an otherwise plain wall used creatively. When a door is added into the artwork, it is just icing on the cake 🙂

    All very colorful and imaginative! A great collection:) In the first one it’s not the door but the bike in the snow that cracks me up, because serendipitous-ly, hubby looked up a bike in our garage, and put it in front of the garage door, to shoot a pic for me to put on my blog for next week! (both without knowing what was on your post)!
    Would not paint over the 5th if it became my garage door.

  30. In the main, I’m not a great fan of graffiti as loosely described, but this is proper street art. And we get to play Spot The Door too.

  31. These are great, Norm. For some reason, I like the fourth one with the rooster the best. But what amazing artists.

    The chickens! The cats! The colors! The lines! I especially loved the ones that bled the art on the doors just barely beyond the doors — outside the frame, as it were. The colors and liveliness certainly warm up the season!

    I love seeing art like this on walls and doors. It brightens up the dreary city.

  36. A+, Norm. 🙂 I do love your wall mural artists, and those chickens just make me chuckle out loud. Applause to those artists, and to you for sharing such interesting doors and walls – two for one. 🙂

    Those doors are amazing and fun. I love the giant rooster garage door and I like the garage door that blends so well into the wall of birds. I know it might be temporary, but I like that the colonial soldier looks like he climbed up on the trellis. These are great, and I think the would brighten up a winter day. Hmmm, where’s my spray paint?

    Norm, those doors are cooler than cool. I love all of the doors, but the one with the colonial people and the guy with the tattoo feeding a wild cat are the best. Thanks for sharing your amazing photos and doors.
