    Good Art Good Memorial
    This guy is beloved in this town and this mural is very well-executed. It is very tall and on the side of a skyscraper, displayed in a way that you can see it from Mont Royal as well as from some streets downtown. Good art, good memorial.

    Spiritual experience - well, at least really good.
    I walked 30 minutes each way from Old Town listening to Cohen music to get in the right frame of mind. The mural itself is so intricate and well done. The neighborhood is great. Well worth effort any side trip needed to see it.

    One word: Amazing!
    Really beautifully done. The only issue I might have is that it’s me of the last photos of him, but he was an interesting guy for a long time and so they could have done photos of him in different stages of his life from say 30 yrs onward but it still works as it is. Definitely a fitting tribute to his amazing legacy.

We really only saw it from Mont Royal and passing in a taxi. I was amazed at how large it is. A public work of art capturing the heart, soul, intelligence, and humility of Leonard Cohen.

A huge mural of Leonard Cohen situated in the heart of downtown Montreal. The artist has done well capturing his spirit in this absolutely huge portrait of Leonard Cohen.

A brilliant mural, which we passed during the day, saw from the Musée des Beaux-Arts, close up from the nearby cigar bar then from the terrace at the Chalet du Mont Royal. Magnificent tribute to one of Montreal’s favourite sons and one of our favourite singers.

We noted this mural from our observation spot up on Mont Royal, but it is more visible from downtown. Cohen is a idol here, part of the local folklore, much beloved. This mural is beautifully-painted.

There are two excellent places to view this fantastic mural. One is from Mount Royal where the mural stands out quite strongly and the other is from just up the street where Cohen's larger-than-life, yet humble persona shines through.

Located on Crescent Street, the Leonard Cohen Mural covers 10,000 square-feet on the side of a 21-story building. This mural can also be seen from the lookout on Mount Royal.
