Franco Fasoli a.k.a. Jaz's Mural in Montreal

June 18, 2015

Franco Fasoli a.k.a. Jaz has a new mural up in Montreal, Canada as part of the city's Mural Festival. The piece is called The Popular and mirrors his collage aesthetic, in which complex images are rendered in fragmented blocks of color. The piece is about 65 feet by 40 feet. He painted it on the division between the English and French sides of the city. He wanted to explore the theme of duality: the convergence of cultures, their coexistence and the tension that exists within a region that historically has sought separation and independence.
