The Montana-Cans LOOKBOOK 2020 – Looking back to move forward to a new generation Seeing 2019 come to end was a particularly exciting thing. Not only were we the team at Montana-Cans excited by the things to come, but we also enjoyed the chance to reflect and pay tribute to all the creators, partners and supporters that helped make all we achieved possible. Ending 2019 was also joined with the realization that we had just ended a decade and started a new generation. For this very reason, the Montana-Cans LOOKBOOK 2020 is jammed packed with exceptional content. Available now in limited hard copies and digitally in the link below, we took time to revisit some of the pivotal moments, like the progress of the Montana BLACK Artist Can Series featuring DEMS and RAGE, the biggest ever Montana Cans logo mural in the LA spray day. We took a peek at the lives of the movers and shakers like Odeith and his very unique take on painting, the LOW BROS at METROPOLINK. We took some time to see the world at the home of SOBEKCIS. We shared some words with HOW & NOSM while they were working on an epic mural for the Boulevard 13 project in Paris. Artists such as Amber Vittoria and DMOTE let us into their studios to share some of their more private works. For the more under the radar artworks, we featured some of the works of veterans of steel in the form of the U.S TCI crew and their efforts on the freight trains. While OSMAN flew the European flag for innovative commuter train artwork. And while in Europe (or at least for now still in Europe), we put the magnifying glass on the UK exposing some refreshing approaches to graffiti by VOYDER, 45RPM, and PREF. "Bring The Paint" beeped heavily on the international event radar, bringing world-class graffiti art and muralism together in one space. While far away over the ocean the team at POW! WOW! and the GREETINGS TOUR teams moved from strength to strength making the international art calendar a monumental one. All this and more. With a big THANK YOU we invite you to spend some time and take a look at the Montana-Cans LOOKBOOK 2020.

o n our journey with

o n our journey with him, it was clear that it would start where it all began. The streets of New York. With a sent of the city and Montana BLACK and Montana GOLD cans a blaze, DMOTE laid down the fundamentals for what was to become a classic graffiti canvas. And this time with the word SHANK. The ACRYLIC markers and ACRYLIC paint refills were out and shaken, at the ready for creating. A full spectrum of colors were used and DMOTE showed no confusion as he grabbed each color instinctually, placing the right color in the right context for a vibrant yet harmonious color scape. With a love of robust round tips, he even turned to the Montana Empty Marker products for various application possibilities. With a refill here and some intricate line work there, we soon saw the style master pull the »SHANK« canvas together. Aerosol faded color, juxtaposed against opaque placements served up accurate linear craftsmanship. Even for the non graffiti initiated, watching DMOTE create is like an enthralling passage of time travel through the origins and future of graffiti style writing. Regardless of which tool he puts in his hands, something impressive always happens. Watching DMOTE create is like an enthralling passage of time travel through the origins and future of graffiti style writing ↗ »New York, New York big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain‘t always what it seems«. For DMOTE, a long way from Australia but home never the less. → Anything is possible. Various phases of DMOTE’s artist path composed on paper, cover his studio walls. Mapping out where he has been and possibly where he could go. →→ SHANK, just one of many alter egos for DMOTE that helped him re-invent himself when arriving in New York, explore new letter possibilities and avoid becoming stagnant. 100 Acrylic Series DMOTE
