Thursday Doors – July 16, 2020

Street Art Doors in Rosemont/Petite-Patrie, Montréal (Part #1)

Continuing our exploration of Montréal’s Ruelles Vertes/Green Laneways here’s a selection of street-art doors.

Most of them are on garage doors or storage sheds built on top of the garage. A lot of the art is quite good…well at least it is to my untrained eye 😉

An access door to some kind of storage loft above a parking garage.

Incorporating a storage shed above the garage seems to have been a popular feature at some point.

I wish I had my wide-angle lens with me for this one. Tight spaces and big murals = not the greatest shot 😦

To share your own Thursday Doors post just paste your link in the comments section below so that others can visit and have a look at your discoveries. Remember: you have until noon eastern North American time on Saturday to add your link.

As always, if you have the time, please take a few minutes to visit some of the Thursday Door posts shared by our other contributors.

    Well this naturally made my day. Doors and some absolutely wonderful and unusual street art. These are really my dream streets and I might have to come out there sometime to see them for myself. Fabulous.

      I was pretty sure you’d enjoy these 😉
      I have a few more left for next week as well.
      If you do ever make it out this way give me some advance notice and we’ll meet up and show you where to find all the best ones. With the annual Mural-fest Montreal is becoming more known for its street-art.

  7. Oh, thank you for these shapes and colours. Instant happiness boost. Is it still as hot there? Here it’s around 25 tops! And the sea is colder than usual, mom complains. Plus there are non-stinging jellyfish.

    I’m inland in Ljubljana though and today, as it happens, just one gate. Be well.

    Large scale creations like these are fascinating to me. Being able to visualize on such a scale has to be a unique talent! My favourite is the long tower-ish looking building with the pink snake. My first reaction was that this was a giant pencil. Now I’m not so sure what the artist was actually depicting.

      Creativity on such a large scale always impresses me. I can imagine all of the things that have to be done just right for the project to be a success. There are some truly talented people out there.
      Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’re doing well 🙂

  20. Excellent Norm. Love the one with the face. So many different styles in there too. So for this week there’s yet another one from London based French artist Zabou – yep. Same pub / same doors again. Still got one more in the pipeline but that’s a Halloween special. This one has an Alice in Wonderland theme. Look out for the black cat just above the doorway – easy to miss. https://theartblogger54.wordpress.com/2020/07/13/street-art-by-zabou-19-alice-in-wonderland/

    I love that area, Norm. I particularly like the last but one shot, with the door hiding beneath the guy’s bent legs. The artist mage great use of his canvas.

  24. Such a creative neighborhood. I liked the pink dragon,reminded me of Barbie in Rapunzel. I wonder if there’s a children’s room atop that tower 🙂

    These are fun, Norm. Some of those storage sheds look pretty big. I think the art gives a nice vibe to what could be a dreary alley, and I agree, they are well done. Talented, imaginative people at work. I like them. I do see what you mean about needing a wider angle lens.

    My contribution is at https://nofacilities.com/2020/07/16/the-unique-doors-of-osv-thursdaydoors/ – given my post earlier this week, I doubt you’ll be surprised.

    I hope you are staying safe and well, and I hope you have a nice weekend.

      Thanks Dan. Normally I could have switched to the wide angle in a heartbeat…except on that day I left the camera bag at home and only brought the camera with its kit lens: D’OH!
      All is well here, safe and sound, and staying cool. Hope everything is good down your way as well. From what I’ve read CT seems to have virus spread under control at the moment.

        They say, the best camera is the one you have.

        We are doing well here, Norm. They’ve slowed the pace of reopening, but we have many things open (partially) so that we can do most things, if we’re careful. They were going to open bars next week, but that’s been postponed for a long while, I assume.

  29. Fabulous street art! I could look at it for hours I think. I hope to participate today, and bring some street art of my own (well, a the picture, not the art itself).
