The SCAN you rock mural


Hi everyone I'm Kay (Scan wife)!

I am raising  money for the M. Cando non profit organization  to fund a commemorative mural in honour of artist / muralist Alex Scaner "SCAN” (my husband). To be painted by more than 30 renowned local and international artists, the 7250 square foot mural will create a major impact visible from the new Turcot Highway Interchange in Montreal, currently the largest road project in Canada. Given the high costs of a production of this size, we need your contribution to realize this symbolic project. Since we are planning to produce the mural at the end of August, the sooner that we will receive your contribution the easier it will be for us to go a head. We are very gratefull for your quick response.

SCAN

The artist, Alex Scaner, passed on September 9th following an 8-year battle with cancer. One of the most prolific graffiti artists of his generation, he is world-renowned for his agility, flamboyant colours, and passion for bold urban interventions. Over his 20 year career, Scaner left an indelible mark and redefined the limits of graffiti while showing endless generosity for the community.

"He left us with a lesson of never ending courage and super fresh style writing that can influence generations and generations. It's now our time to honour him! "-Stare



Your contribution

A project of this magnitude usually requires an investment of more than $50,000. Since all the artists involved are committed to donating their time, the funds raised will be used to finance the rental of aerial work platforms, scaffolding, safety equipment, as well as paint and transportation for artists. Every donation counts and every little contribution will help us.  A special recognition will be given to those who contribute more than $200 by having their names written on the wall.


Why it's important

Through the creation of this mural, we wish to emphasize the importance that Scan has had in our lives, and to share the values he bequeathed to us; passion, courage, sharing, and dedication. The influence of this project on the participants and the viewers alike will allow them to realize the grandeur of Scan’s work and message.

Time is gold.

Hi everyone

I’d like to take a moment to be honest with all of ours donors… Because your are all supporting a really symbolic project which means so much more than a mural.
I recently went through a very hard time that made me want to press the refund button and give up on everything… It’s a difficult task to achieve a public event especially for Scan. Believe me. Mistakes, misunderstandings, conflict and critics have been my daily routine… And at some point I was asking my self is it really worth it ???

And then I look at this pretty face, this amazing human being and artist who was my husband. I spoke to the right individuals, cause YESS I'm also surrounded by dedicated people who have done everything to help me. They made me remember what is really important and they continue to give me strength.

I am learning slowly (probably too slowly) to let go of negativity and things that I can’t change. I know that at the end nothing will ever be perfect but guess what?! IT'S OKAY! You just do your best and you KEEP GOING. That is one of the greatest lessons Alex gave me.

So all this emotional post to let you know that this is exactly what we are doing here: Our best! And it's going to be an AMAZING mural.

It’s time to present you one of our most important team players: Zek!

Zek will be the one sketching the layout of the mural. We are really honoured to have him by our side as he is one of the most important figures in our city. Zek has forged the writing scene and imposed a high quality standard. Always clean, balanced and powerful, his pieces are a huge contribution to our landmark. And more than anything Zek is like extended family.

Your generosity is making the magic happen! and I can’t express my gratitude enough for that.

We still need your support on this! The countdown has already started and the time to be part of it is NOW!

But remember more than money we need your positivity and your help

Hi everyone I’m Karine (Scan’s wife.)

I’m the president of the Monsieur Scandaleux (M.Cando) Non Profit Organization. We created this organization for Alex Scaner. Our mission is to promote his legacy.
Following the gofundme policy, here’s the detail on the administration of the founds.
Since we do not have our GST and QST numbers yet, I will be the one who will forward the money. All of your contributions will be transferred to the non profit account by me and will be used in order to promote Scaner’s work. We are really grateful for your generosity and look forward to show you the outcome. We will soon post an update on our progress and keep sharing with you, without whom this project could not have seen the light!

Love u all
Time is gold <3
