It took 5 A’Shop artists, 16 days, and 500 cans of paint to create this gigantic graffitied Mother Nature-esque Madonna. The 5 story, Alphonse Mucha inspired mural makes for a stunning stand out among the buildings of Montreal.
Fluke of A’Shop told the Montreal Gazette, “The main thing that struck us was the public’s reaction while we were painting the mural. Some people gave us the cold shoulder at first, thinking we were painting an ad. Then when they realized we were reviving an old wall with a mural, they were came back to see us everyday. That really fueled us. Within days we had the whole community involved. People invited us for lunch and the Jamaicans at the local barber shop were giving us high-fives!”
