For us at MONTANA-CANS, it is immeasurably important to have a close connection to our friends and partners who use our tools. This need for a close correlation has led us to support and sponsor an amazing amount of incredible events and projects, and helped us to establish collaborations with numerous artists, brands and partners. We are grateful to be in a position to be able to provide this kind of support, and thankful for the abundance of inspirations and ideas that artists and collaboration partners from all across the world share with us. We make it a point to feature these projects and collaborations on our blog and and social media channels, but because of the fast-paced hustle and bustle of the internet, we have decided it was time to create a printed collection which contains merely a small fraction of the creative work we have been involved in over the past years.

AS KE The start of

AS KE The start of ASKE’s career was more than jaw-dropping. The Moscow-based artist went from zero to being an internationally renowned graffiti-writer, graphic designer and illustrator within less than a decade. In 2010, the New York print magazine – magazine – placed him among the Top 20 rising, international, fine artists. Obviously we were psyched when he agreed to design a BLACK artist edition can for us. After lengthy deliberation, he picked our BLK 9100 „Snow White“. The fact that so many writers use and cherish this can really sealed the deal. During the creation of the design, ASKE focused foremost on incorporating the existing BLACK can design into his own special can design. He decided to emphasize the name of his color by capturing the atmosphere of a snowy winter day, mainly in white and grey with a few red accents. Even the urban feel of the traffic lights and pigeons really give you the sense of the BLACK can style. Of course he stayed true to his artistic style as well. After starting his artistic career in 2000, he was rapidly known for his comic-like motifs, which he constructs using single isolated geometric shapes defined by straight lines. This gives his figures a kind of sterile, robotic-like appearance, while at the same time, his pieces are very dynamic and strikingly colorful. All in all, we think ASKE has achieved his goal: his design fits the can perfectly. 16
