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.

LOW BROS Low Bros- Transforming environments near you. The Low Bros have been making moves in the international mural scene for quite some time. As their projects get more and more elaborate, we are constantly impressed by their use of the Montana Cans products that they choose to work with. It is not only their image content that keeps crowds watching, it is also their high-quality technique and application that keeps their artwork “up there” with the best of them.

“Passage” Mural by LOW BROS The new artistic gateway to Juan les Pins, France ↑ A short moment of contemplation and some sun on their backs before it‘s back to the scissor lift. Profile @low_bros @coulheuresdautomne Location Juan les Pins, France Photography @low_bros Located exactly at the passage between Antibes and Juan les Pins, the mural marks one of the entrances to the Juan les Pins seaside resort ← Up high in the clouds. That is if there was any. This blue-sky day offers ideal painting conditions. Managing the fine (yet tense) line between tradition and progression is what the LOW BROS from Hamburg-Germany do best. The brothers Christoph and Florin Schmidt who make up the artistic duo have become well known for their retro-futuristic approach to making art and murals. In their latest large-scale mural called “Passage”, the duo have created a new artistic gate into the Juan les Pins region of the French Riviera. Beware of the wolves! The figure of the wolf is normally one that communicates fear, respect, or tension in artworks and cultural stories. That is unless it is in a LOW BROS wolf. For the LOW BROS, the wolf has become an iconic symbol much like an avatar, that helps viewers navigate the LOW BROS visual spaces. Located exactly at the passage between Antibes and Juan les Pins, the mural marks one of the entrances to the Juan les Pins seaside resort. In a context that seems perfect for the imagery, their wolves, structures, and retro digital spaces which appear to still run on floppy discs are given a contemporary feel as if streaming live from anywhere on earth. Depth, color, and palms bring the Hawaiian shirt feeling that is complemented by the smell of sea air and waves rolling in, in the distance. → Blocking out the bulk of the mural, on-lookers are far from informed as to what the Low Bros have for them ahead. The work created in the context of the Festival Coul’Heures d’Automne is a prime example of when art gives back to its location. Negotiating the shape of the building and the context of its location, the LOW BROS managed to create a neighborhood-friendly concept. The blue of the background sky, present in a welcoming mural that shines with dynamic Montana GOLD colors and layers of acrylic paint. The breeze blew calmly as the sun shined on the backs of the LOW BROS, raised above sea level in the comfort of their scissor lift. Or at least we can imagine it was that way by the looks of their short film which captured the making of “Passage”. Production Low Bros 129
