Sur ton mur is an online art gallery selling limited edition prints and original works of art by Quebec illustrators. My goal is to make art accessible and affordable, so that you can surround yourself by artwork that excites and inspires you.
Sur ton mur was born in 2013, in a conversation between two sisters-in-law: myself (Shira Adriance - a curator and entrepreneur) and Elise Gravel (an author and illustrator). Elise’s desire to offer artwork to her fans has since turned into a gallery representing 26 illustrators and over 350 pieces of art.
Sur ton mur specializes in illustration, an art form that is most commonly experienced in books or magazines. Illustration sparks the imagination, tells a story, communicates a message. The best illustration becomes a visual memory that you want to return to again and again, like a kid reading their favorite book.
Since the beginning Sur ton mur has been a labor of love. From choosing artwork to shipping your packages, every part of the process is done in my small studio by me. So if you have a question, want to suggest a new illustrator for our gallery, or just want to show me a photo of how your artwork looks in its new home, feel free to get in touch! I answer every message personally.
Sur ton mur represents Isabelle Arsenault, Pascal Blanchet, Josée Bisaillon, Pascale Bonenfant, Sophie Casson, Cathon, Jacinthe Chevalier, Marianne Chevalier, Julien Chung, Cyril Doisneau, Patrick Doyon, Gérard Dubois, Manon Gauthier, Élise Gravel, Geneviève Godbout, Ohara Hale, Iris, Katy Lemay, Janice Nadeau, Sophie PA, Guillaume Perreault, Alain Pilon, Michel Rabagliati, Rogé, Benoit Tardif, and Suana Verelst.
