Art & culture

A community trying to make a difference

L’Original is a gallery in Old Montreal that collects second-hand items to turn them into unique artworks, thus making art a smart way to transform our environment.

Through their collective of artists, L’Original democratizes art and highlights the vibrant atmosphere of local talents.

As a non-profit organization, its mission is to unite and promote emerging artists in Montreal's artistic community to give a new life to used objects and avoid producing new ones.

They offer a variety of products, including paintings on canvas, second-hand furniture, clothing and shoes painted on by their artists, as well as exterior and interior murals.

Hours and further details can be found on the company’s website.
