Top Creative Instagrammers of Montréal

According to The Huffington Post, Montréal is the fourth most creative city in Canada, so we figured we were bound to find some artists who show off their creativity on social media.

Using the CrowdRiff platform, we found Montréal’s top creative Instagrammers that consistently dazzle followers with their creativity and photography skills.




This hip feed takes you inside the forgotten, graffitied corners of Montréal and showcases the city’s hidden artists. The photographer likes to go on risky photo hunts, quoting in his Instagram bio that “Adventure without risk is Disneyland”.

“Every Thursday we go out, drink, cause trouble and eat…and in the morning we wake up and write it all down”. What more could you ask of food bloggers?

Creator of the Instagram hashtag #yellowoclock, @yellowillow’s account demonstrates a love for the great outdoors and of course the colour yellow, which provides a neat lens of Montréal. Look for the yellow in your life and check out the account to brighten your day! 


These photos are simple, yet intriguing, and the feed’s focus on everyday items is enhanced by @ttaavvii’s appreciation for vibrant colours and lighting contrasts.

Prendre un moment pour repenser à 2015 au grand complet, pis un peu capoter de réaliser que c'est déjà la fin d'une année qui semble avoir commencée hier • Tout ce qui me vient en tête est qu'on s'est installé dans notre première maison, qu'on a célébré notre premier anniversaire de mariage, qu'on est devenu parents & qu'on s'est énormément rapprochés (l'un de l'autre, mais aussi de nos proches) • Le reste me semble superflu, même si je suis extrêmement fière des artistes/entrepreneurs qu'on devient avec le temps • Si ce n'était pas de la forteresse de bien-être qu'on est en train de bâtir, Alex et moi, jamais je ne serais en mesure d'apprécier les belles choses qui m'entourent et que je partage ici, en photos, et qui peuvent sembler être le centre de ma vie pour ceux qui ne me connaissent pas • En 2016, j'espère avancer autant dans ma vie personnelle afin de continuer à en faire briller les bienfaits un peu partout autour de moi • Et quand j'y pense, ce n'est pas tant les belles choses que j'aime, mais ma capacité à pouvoir de plus en plus les apprécier • Je t'aime @alexandre_champagne (je sais que je suis intense MAIS LES HORMONES YO!)
