Montana Cans LOOKBOOK 2022 Edition #7 It's that time again to welcome the release of the Montana Cans Lookbook 2022 edition #7. There is no rewind button on life, making it all the more important to reflect on the year that was, and the things that happened during that period. The Montana-Cans Lookbook does just that and reflects on some of the highlights from the year prior. A moment to reflect on those things that may not have received as much shine as they deserved while being "in the moment". The 2021/2022 period was a particularly unique period not only for Montana Cans but for the world as a whole. Mankind arrived at what we hope is the end of the Coronavirus pandemic, there was turbulence in many regions, and the global population started to come to terms with the new financial challenges of life. But apart from increasing prices and challenging health/social situations, there were also many positive moments that brought innovation, fun, color, and creativity back into our lives. The Montana Cans collaborations continued with our many partners, artistic friends, and organizations within the creative world, including a vast array of amazing limited-edition cans, cool collectible products, and new innovations that make painting and creating even more enjoyable than before. Countless brave event organizers pushed forward with their dreams and their world-class events, with Montana Cans as partners on board regardless of the social and political hurdles put in place in the name of health and safety. And off the radar, the global graffiti community kept on creating and pushing our culture forward despite the challenges put in place around them. Regardless of where you were in 2021/2022, steel, bricks, canvas, furniture, and even clothing all got a special creative touch that Montana Cans was proud to be part of. With this in mind, we present to you the Montana-Cans Lookbook 2022 Edition #7 for your enjoyment. Available here digitally and in limited amounts in print at selected Montana Cans partners and resellers.


“WHAT IS ANAGLYPHIC ANYWAY” As his image titled “Lust” came to life, the first question we had was, “what is anaglyphic anyway”? This word we often hear when reading articles referring to the artist. The dictionary meaning told us “a composite picture printed in two colors that produces a three-dimensional image when viewed through spectacles having lenses of corresponding colors”. For INSANE51, it was simply the result of some pre-festival ideas that he experimented with, after having being inspired by the 3D movies you watch while wearing those funny 3D glasses. Having painted and developed this style ever since INSANE51 has found a red and blue niche in street art that he has managed to make his own. And with a little help from his favorite Montana BLACK and GOLD cans, INSANE51 brings those ideas to life! The mural “Lust”, which was being created for the METROPOLINK festival in Heidelberg, Germany, explores a new idea INSANE51 is working on internationally, which puts the spotlight on the “The 7 Deadly Sins”. The first of the series “Pride” was painted in his hometown of Athens, enabling “Lust” to be the conversation-provoking second mural in the series. ​ → The calm before the storm. Before the topic of lust could get started, the bulk of the mural still had to take shape. ↓ ↘ Layer by layer we see how the abstract patches of red and blue color build an anaglyphic image. ↓ ↘ ↘ Testing, testing, 1…2…3. A quick check with the 3D glasses to make sure everything is going to plan. The first of the series “Pride” was painted in his hometown of Athens, enabling “Lust” to be the conversation-provoking second mural in the series. ↙ There are many ways to plot out elements of a mural when working large scale. But what if you're painting two murals in one? For Insane51, masking tape is as good a way as any. ↓ Variations or red, and variations of blue. The basis of the 3D effect. ↓ ↓ All seasons, any weather. The Montana GOLD keeps on keeping on. 108 Artist in focus Insane51
