The 2019 edition of MURAL Fest may be over but a giant neon-lit wall is here to stay.

Hopefully.

Artist spidertag has set up a 27 metre by 14 metre neon-lit mural on Boulevard Saint-Laurent and Mont Royal, where he hopes it’ll be a mainstay on the streets of Montreal.

“The extremely hard conditions might make it tough to last through the winter,” Spidertag tells Daily Hive. “It’s unpredictable but we did our best to make it survive.”

Spidertag’s “Interactive Neon Mural #4” is the fourth art piece in a series of neon-lit murals around the world. “I did neon murals in Estarreja (Portugal), Hawaii (USA), Santiago de Chile (Chile), and I just finished one in Worcester (USA),” says the artist. “It took us 10 days of hard work, 10 hours a day, with two assistants and electricians.”

The art piece lights up every night from 9 pm to 11:30 pm and will continue to do so until the foreseeable future.
