Last May, we announced the lineup for MURAL street art festival in Montreal, which takes place this week in the city through June 15. The 20 artists are currently at work on their pieces, from Etam Cru's BEZT and Cyrcle to Montreal's own 123Klan and Vilx

To kick off the week of painting and festivities, local gallery Station 16 opened an exhibition of work by the French street artist KASHINK, whose colorful, humorous portraits are unmistakable. In addition to her pieces, there are works by artists painting at MURAL, such as Stikki Peaches and 123Klan, plus some by RONE, FIVE8, and ZILON.

View the exhibition in Montreal through July 3 and stay tuned for more MURAL updates.
