Frida Kahlo Mural – Alleyway art

Every June Montreal is host to some of the best mural artist for an event called Mural Fest. The artists produce some stunning work, leaving the Plateau and Mile-End neighbourhoods full of bright and colourful walls and feeling like an outdoor museum. While the festival is concentrated in those two areas, it’s not unusual to come across a beautiful mural in other neighbourhoods where you least expect them. As I walked along the street in Ville-Emard on a rainy day, out of the corner of my eye I saw a pop of colour down an alleyway, so I decided to investigate. To my pleasant surprise, I discovered a mural of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, by a street artist named Elisa Frank. Not only did she perfectly capture Frida Kahlo’s likeness, she also surrounded Kahlo by beautiful colourful flowers which drew my attention.

I like that the mural is in such a residential area down an alleyway where you would least expect it. A wonderful surprise and a must-see for any Frida Kahlo fan.
