o canada part 2: eye candy in Montreal

Saturday, August 03, 2013

Well this post has been a long time coming... 


I've been completely sucked into the British summer over the last two months (what a cracker!) and found it very hard to sit in front of a computer when picnics and sunshine beckon.

However, if you're after a art fix and thinking about visiting North America any time soon I would highly recommend stopping off in Montreal. Aside from the French influence, the architecture, the theatre... the list goes on, the thing that really struck me when wandering about the city on foot and bicycle was the amazing street art. Montreal streets are indeed eye candy for the art lovers soul.

Here are some of the pics I snapped during my explorations...

There's quite a few websites and blogs dedicated to the Montreal art scene - here's a few I like:

Such a lovely city. Hoping to revisit very soon. Have a great weekend everyone!
