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.

Stadt. Wand. Kunst 1 Festival Profile IG @stadtwandkunst Artist Profiles IG @okudart @czolk @zoonchez @case_maclaim @peeta_ead @quinte55enz Photography Montana-Cans / Alexander Krziwanie Location Mannheim, Germany There are many street art festivals that have popped up in the last 10 years. The time for street artists, muralists, and artists creating public art to shine and prosper has never been better than now. But what about the locations where these festivals are taking place? Are the residents benefitting from the newly decorated streetscape? 1 A fear of heights is not an option. OKUDA reaches to the upper areas of his monumental sized mural. The Stadt.Wand.Kunst (SWK) festival in Mannheim Germany can clearly say it is the case that the locals are benefitting from the renaissance of their city. Why? Because the locals themselves are identifying with the art - works that are now at home in their urban space. This sense of identity may be good curation, or maybe by chance as the artists themselves come from exceptionally diverse backgrounds. In 2019 again the mural bar was raised and the city became a better place to be. Or at the very least to look at. Some of the works created in 2019 were by local residents CZOLK and JENS RICHTER, Spanish colorist OKUDA, fellow Spanish artist flying the intercultural flag RUBEN SANCHEZ, Italian 3D illusionist PEETA, the German duo QUINTESSENZ and Frankfurt’s own cultural observer and realist painter CASE MA’CLAIM. With a growing awareness of street art and mu - ralism increasing in what was once a blue-collar city, the many residents of Mannheim including immigrants can now relate to the images they see on their walls. Many identify with the messages, motifs or even the colors used by the artist of which some come from the same part of the world that they too originate from. 60 Recap Stadt.Wand.Kunst
