The métro station Crémazie is named after the poet Octave Crémazie (1827–1879), who was born in Québec. A mural on the station wall by Georges Lauda and Paul Pannier and titled Le poète dans l'univers is dedicated to Crémazie and two other poets from Québec: Émile Nelligan (1879–1941) and Hector de Saint-Denys Garneau (1912–43).
A plaque explains the mural. The principal colors here are blue, black and white, evocative of the night sky, and the curves are representative of the trajectories of the heavenly bodies.
Planet and zodiac signs are evocative, by their unusual presence, of the liberty of poetic inspiration and lyricism.
Anti-clockwise, representations of the heads of Garneau, Nelligan and Crémazie.
