I had the pleasure of passing through the Fake Store last night to chill and take in some of the recent works by one of Montreal's finest and hardest working writers. Scan has been writing for the better part of the last 15 years, first getting up in 1996. He honed his skills on Montreal streets and was soon a staple of local landscape. Over the last decade he has traveled abroad to Mexico, New York, Paris, San Juan, Rome, and many other cities bringing his distinctive style and form to walls and rooftops the world over. For the next ten days you can view, and if your lucky enough purchase, some of his more recent works at the Fake Store located at 68 Rachel East in the Plateau.
In the boutique section Scan had a number of limited prints and photos while the bulk of his new abstract series on canvass was exhibited next door in the gallery space. I loved the prints and photos especially and really enjoyed taking in the canvass work he had on display. I'm more used to seeing his letters on the streets so this was a fresh look at what he has in store for us in his future work. Scan is most definitely taking it to the next level with this series trying new techniques and pushing himself in new directions.
As always the Fake crew put on a solid event with some beats by the French Connection Djs, good company, conversations, and connects. These guys have put a lot of work into their brand and you can see it in the quality of the merchandise they have for sale. If you're looking to make that new and fresh addition to your personal clothing and accessory collection then stop on through the Fake Store and invest into a Brand You Can Trust. You won't be disappointed.
Photos, paintings, and prints are available while they last so do yourself a favor and check out the latest evolution of Scan's work. You can find all the details on the Fake Store here at their web site, and while your at it take a look at their promo videos and line of clothing, hats, shoes, and other goodies. They got a great team doing some awesome work so be sure to keep up with them at the shop or online so as to not miss out on upcoming events and shows this year. The Scan expo was part of the larger project called Saturation 2012 that will also be showcasing the works of Philip Cruz, Zeck One & Kems in the coming months. So there are some exciting and interesting shows to come.
Pass on through the Fake Store and check out this show. It's only up until the 29th of January so don't sleep on this one.
More soon, stay posted.
