JAZ's MURAL15 Mural in Montreal, Canada
Hookedblog continue with our coverage of this years edition of the MURAL festival in Montreal with one of twenty new murals being painted around the city as part of this festival.
Yesterday we spent some time with Argentinean muralist Franco Fasoli aka JAZ here in Montreal at work on a large scale wall. It was our fist time meeting this talented artist and also the first of his murals we have actually seen in person rather than online which was really exciting and we can't wait to see the wall completed. Jaz still has some work to do before this new mural is completed but it's already looking like a very strong image.
We spoke to a number of passersbys as we were taking some photos who were all enjoying this new addition to the cities walls. We also had a conversation with some of the office workers located in one of the building directly opposite JAZ's mural who were kind enough to let us in to photography JAZ's mural. One of them express her joy as she had also seen JAZ's mural work online and now she was lucky enough to be watching his mural unfold in front of her eyes from his work desk.
JAZ takes a break from painting to pose for Martha Cooper who also stopped by yesterday to catch the artist at work. Jaz has a few more days work yet to do before this mural is finished so stay tuned.
