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.

WOW! JApan 2019

6 Featuring artists such as Jason Keam, Tatiana Saurez, Towmei Kaisen, Luise Ono, Super Deux, Denpa, 123klan, Cab, and Laurence Vallières, the diverse artworks represented a cultural mixing pot of ideas and techniques. It didn’t just stop at art. The usual festivities were naturally complemented by skateboarding, BMX, dancing and artist talks. The artworks were a mirror of the color and vibrancy of the event. Excluding those works in black and white by Denpa that were just as dynamic. The beach made a perfect base and backdrop as the final stages of the event were spent by the artists resting by the barbeque listening to the music and waves sooth their creative fatigue. Another great year for POW! WOW! and another exceptional cultural happening for Japan. 8 6 123 Klan keeping it graffiti, and keeping it colorful.
