I stopped by the world famous SERIPOP HQ, located in a nondescript building in Montreal’s Mile End district, last month and chatted with Yannick Desranleau and
Chloe Lum about life in Montreal, the art and music they create together (as Seripop
and Aids Wolf), and their desire to create more installation based work* in the future, whilst photographing them and their lovely work. They had just returned from a 6 week tour with Aids Wolf less than 48 hours before I arrived at their space so did not have any new projects in the works but I peeked in their flat files and flipped through their portfolio books, ogling their beautiful, brightly colored screenprints.

Silkscreened Rock Posters:::



we utilized some objects that were laying around the studio space as photo props (these adorable little pastel-colored cars were part of one of their installations)

& i snooped around, documenting behind-the-scenes…

the exciting power washer!
