A new giant painting has been unveiled in Leonard Cohen’s hometown alongside a host of huge street art pieces as part of Montreal’s fifth MURAL International Public Art Festival. Cohen, the poet, songwriter, and performer, who died on 7 November 2016 has been immortalised in a 40 foot high mural by Canadian Kevin Ledo on Rue Saint Dominique in the Plateau neighborhood that Cohen called home.

It is a fitting tribute for a local legend who raved about the town and is buried there; “I feel at home when I’m in Montreal – in a way that I don’t feel anywhere else,” Leonard Cohen told the New York Times in 2006. At 82 years old when he passed away, Cohen had hardly slowed down, having just released what would be his final album, You Want It Darker, and perhaps readying another.

He also authorized an exhibition of his work and now, Montreal’s Musée d’Art Contemporain (AKA the Mac) has announced that ‘Leonard Cohen – Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything’, will open 9 November, as part of the city’s official 375th anniversary celebration.

The show, which takes its name from Cohen’s 1992 song Anthem, will open exactly one year after Cohen’s death, and will run until 9 April 2018. It will be a coming home of sorts for Cohen, who grew up in Montreal before moving to the US.

Whilst the Cohen mural tribute dominates attention, a host of internationally acclaimed artists created several other works across Montreal, see below for their landscape-dominating artwork:
