In 2009, a group of Montreal graffiti artists decided to pool their talent and raise their profile on the Street Art scene. They founded ASHOP, a collective that opened doors to business opportunities in tune with the members’ artistic visions. By adopting the core crew values of unity and mutual support, but in an entrepreneurial context, the collective has been able to set a new quality standard for street art in Montreal. The reputation of this crew quickly travelled beyond the city walls. Indeed, ASHOP's artists have distinguished themselves internationally since painting murals in several major cities, including Toronto, Miami, Los Angeles and Paris. Led by Fluke, Zek, Dodo Ose, Ankhone and Earth Crusher, ASHOP CREW’s work is recognized for its vibrant combination of styles and innovative approach to the art form.
