What if art ruled the world?

On every visit back to Montreal, the place where I grew up, I take great pleasure in just walking around, looking for all kinds of stickers and posters placed by street artists.
The truly gifted creators will have made something that rises above the morass of vandals’ visual cacophony — something worthy of permanently adorning the backside of street signs, the faces of traffic light control boxes, lamp posts, bollards, parking meters, bike stands and more.
Indeed, Montreal is full of unremarkable, annoying stickers and posters … but there are so many gems, too.
Here are some of my favourites.
