A unique project honouring an exceptional artist, Leonard Cohen. The mural is the result of a collaboration between two artists: El Mac, the internationally renowned American “street” portrait artist, and Gene Pendon, a Montreal-based artist with a fine arts degree from Concordia University. Montreal residents and visitors can now admire the city’s largest mural from several key viewpoints.
The mural is a part of MU’s Tribute to Montreal’s Great Artists series, which includes works honouring Michel Tremblay, Alys Robi, Janine Sutto, Oscar Peterson, Émile Nelligan, Dany Laferrière, and Oliver Jones, among others.
