Why We Chose It

Granted, the wow factor of this photo is largely about the graffiti artist, but the photographer deserves credit, too, for framing this image so well and having the foresight to recognize it as a compelling subject. It’s simply amazing how multidimensional the work is—at first it seemed to be a painting on a window looking through to a building. Only at second glance was it apparent that the artwork was painted onto the building (the Old Misson Brewery in Old Montreal). Graffiti is well-established high art in Montreal, and this is just one of many examples. Check out the work of A’shop, for example.
