A mural on a bulk carrier? Why not? Canadian shipping company CSL has chosen one of its bulk carriers as the “canvass” for an original work-of-art.

Namely, over the course of three weeks in February-March 2017, four urban Montreal artists worked together to create the mural that celebrates the 150th anniversary of Canada and the 375th of the City of Montreal, and marks a renewal under way at CSL. The company chose CSL St-Laurent to host the tribute.

The Sea Keeper/Gardien des eaux was conceived by Montreal urban artist Beyung and created with artists FONKi, Ankh One, and Benny Wilding of the A’shop art collective. Painting of this scale on a ship was a first for the artists, a first for CSL and a first for a Canadian commercial vessel.

Built in 2014, CSL St-Laurent is a 36,363 DWT bulker. The vessel’s arrival in the Port of Montreal in February 2015 marked the final step in CSL’s Trillium Class newbuild program that produced a total of 11 self-unloaders and bulk carriers for CSL’s Canadian and Americas fleets.

On March 20th, 2017, CSL St-Laurent adorned with The Sea Keeper was the first ship to transit the St. Lambert lock, marking the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway.
