Matthew Namour Gallery presents Kevin Cyr's solo exhibition of graffitied trucks

Tonight at the Matthew Namour Gallery in Montreal is the opening of artist Kevin Cyr's solo exhibition, featuring his realistic paintings of the city's eclectic mix of graffitied trucks and vans.

We can't believe how fast the time has gone by, but, you know, as Oettinger said, "Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana." Anyhoo, this year definitely won't disappoint.
