Montrealers are fortunate to live in a city that has always celebrated posters and street art. Although posters have adorned hoardings and buildings in and around our metropolis for over a century, over the last three decades the engine for this urban conversation has been the locally grown poster company Publicité Sauvage. The company hires artists - like Montreal's Yves Archambault - to create posters for events like the world famous Montreal Jazz Festival.
