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. https://www.montana-cans.com/

Reminiscing on the

Reminiscing on the classic American »GREETINGS FROM …« postcards of years gone by, Ving (the artist) and Beggs (the photographer) have been traveling together from state to state creating murals in this exact same theme. Adding a touch of contemporary relevance and a sense of belonging for all the residents in the communities these murals have been painted in. In each state, the duo has cre - ated »GREETINGS FROM« murals that feature contemporary local icons, landmarks, and historical artifacts. In every case, they leave what was a relatively lull wall space with an impressive mural that brightens the landscape and offers a sense of pride for those lucky enough to live around it. ← GREETINGS FROM Moab, Utah. Too hot to sleep in the RV, Ving and Beggs were offered one week free in air conditioned luxury at the Bowen Motel, the site of the mural. ↑ The GREETINGS TOUR travels through nearly every type of terrain. Each location offering ingredients for the next mural. They leave what was a relatively lull wall space with an impressive mural that brightens the landscape and offers a sense of pride for those lucky enough to live around it. 124 Street Report Greetings Tour

← The much loved RV. The workhorse of the tour as mobile home, studio and garage all in one. ↓ The seascapes of Bermuda and endless source of inspiration. Never a dull moment for Lisa Beggs and Victor Ving. ↑ Reliability and quality, the Montana GOLD never lets the team down. Even available in colors made for the location. BERMUDA BLUE, as used in Bermuda. With approximately 41 murals in over 21 states, the prime goal for Ving and Beggs in this project is to cover at least one »GREETINGS FROM« mural in every state of the USA. Amongst many locations, in 2019 Ving and Beggs managed to get the RV van over the seas to the coastal island of Bermuda. Or at least symbolically speaking as the need to fly meant being committed to a booked travel itinerary and being finished on time to catch the flights home. With approximately 41 murals in over 21 states, the prime goal for Ving and Beggs in this project is to cover at least one »GREETINGS FROM« mural in every state of the USA. With 9.834.000 km² of possible surface area to cover, we will enjoy watching the GREETINGS TOUR unfold over the coming years. Street Report Greetings Tour 125
