La Chambre Design
When exploring some of Montreal's best bars and restaurants, you have probably come across the work of interior designer, Amlyne Phillips, founder of La Chambre Design. Her classic style, found in Apt200, Suwu, L'Gros Luxe, the newly opened Jatoba as well as others, is a fusion of charming antiques with modern trends that creates an ambiance that is as cozy as it is hip. Not to mention, she often incorporate the work of Station 16 Gallery, contributing an eclectic edge into her designs.
A Global Street Art Story: Poland
For the latest edition of A Global Street Art Story, Station 16 Gallery is excited to announce that Olek is representing Poland. The 6-colour silkscreen print with 3D puff ink and crystalline is the first print for the crochet artist. The extent of Olek’s crocheting abilities is nearly infinitesimal, transforming everything from cars, billboards, everyday objects, public sculptures, trains, and even people into her crocheted masterpieces. Always daring, her work is consistently witty and whimsical, often exuding political and social undertones.
Pour la dernière édition de A Global Street Art Story, la Galerie Station 16 est heureuse d'annoncer que c’est l’artiste Olek qui représentera Pologne. La sérigraphie en six couleurs avec encre 3D et cristalline est la première réalisée par l’artiste de crochet. L’étendue des capacités en matière de crochet d’Olek est presque infinie, puisqu’il transforme tout : des voitures, des panneaux, des objets du quotidien, des sculptures publiques, des trains et même des gens à travers ses œuvres d'art. Toujours audacieux, son travail regorge d'esprit et d’éléments fantasques, sous-tendant souvent des connotations politiques et sociales.

(Only in French)
Le Diamantaire est un artiste français à surveiller lors du festival MURAL, qui se déroulera de 12 au 15 juin prochains. Il s’agit de sa première présence dans un festival au Canada. L’artiste travaille avec des miroirs, qu’il réutilise en les moulant dans une forme de diamant. Le Diamantaire œuvre dans la sphère de l’installation, en disposant ses miroirs moulés un peu partout sur son passage.
Street Artist DAIN Brings Glamour & Graffiti To Your Walls
Using images of Hollywood icons and fashion models, the New York based artist DAIN juxtaposes celebrity icons, creating hybrids that dissociate the familiar to create something surreal. Coupling male and female identity, playing with proportions and contexts, DAIN unified characters, which simultaneously complements and detracts from the whole. In his correlated images, our idealizations of these famous personalities become empty. This month, Leanna Valente, author of Art & Fashion, was given the opportunity to interview the artist.

With such a diverse group of artists coming together for this project, Station 16 and Instagrafite . Here we’ve taken a closer look at each artists’ unique style, and a bit of background information.
You all know the work of 123 Klan, but for those of you that don't... you may find it strangely familiar. It may be because of their significant character and letter style, but more likely it's due to the fact that they are one of the most contracted graphic designers in the urban scene. With clients like Nike, Pepsi, MTV and Vans, it's no wonder their imagery may seem familiar...
