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.

Level Up for the Streets

Level Up for the Streets of Mannheim Creating an urban gallery for the everyday spectator We really love what we do. This isn’t news to anyone affiliated with our brand, but there is a special satisfaction in seeing the fruits of our labors locally. We are very proud to be supporting the project ‚Stadt. Wand.Kunst‘, which translates as: ‚City.Wall.Art‘. These are, in our opinion, the essential ingredients for awesome graffiti. The four initiators – the GBG housing association of Mannheim, Montana-Cans, the Agency for Urban Cultural Development and the Alte Feuerwache cultural arts center - have made it their goal to create a public gallery on grey city walls - to design large-scale murals on blank house fronts in the central districts of Mannheim. But, one essential ingredient for awesome graffiti is still missing in this list of factors. Yes, the artist creating it. Fortunately we have a fantastic pool of fabulous artists to choose from. In 2015, we invited prominent national and international artists, namely SOBEKCIS from Belgrade, STOHEAD from Berlin and SatOne from Munich, in addition to local artists like Hombre, Boogie, Sweetuno and Meiner. SOBEKCIS’ „Motion“ and SatOne’s „Insomnia“ murals are located in Mannheim’s city district of Neckarstadt. These works are large-scale, colorful and their impressive designs convey the artists‘ styles and preferences. STOHEAD‘s „RHYTHM“ mural can be found directly in Mannheim’s city center. The graffiti-style writing in the mainly black and white design really captures your attention and corresponds wonderfully with the city’s new status as the „city of music“ since 2014. 96
