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.

“I’m in a constant act of liberation, and painting large scale is my way to go. Also, murals enable me to work with my favorite tool of all times: the spray can.” Nychos Murals in Vienna – Nychos ← Nychos giving to birth to his brainchild in the streets of Vienna. ↑ Craving a candy bar? Hang in there and remember to eat your greens, too! ↓ Watch out, fresh paint! Sometimes you should take a step back. In this case, to get a better view of the finished mural. Luckily, Vienna is a colorful city. However, not too long ago, the situation was slightly different. We took the opportunity to chat with one of the most prolific artists from Austria about challenging the status quo and working with extensive formats. “I’m in a constant act of liberation, and painting large scale is my way to go. Also, murals enable me to work with my favorite tool of all times: the spray can. At the wall is where I meditate, where I reach states of flow,” says Nychos. While his paintings can be found anywhere around the globe, shaping the cityscape of his hometown still is of importance to him. “The basic Viennese attitude is first of all to reject everything that is new – and to complain about it. I guess it’s always been like that, despite that we have a rich historical background when it comes to groundbreaking art movements. In the past, I’ve experienced Vienna as a rather slow and lazy city as far as the Graffiti and Street Art scene is concerned – but this is rapidly changing. When I came to Vienna, the city was pretty blank, and I remember it was quite some effort to change that. Looking at Vienna now makes me kind of proud. The city is getting more colorful each year, and people start to appreciate art on the streets. Vienna provides many legal spots to paint – but still, organizing permission for long-lasting legal murals involves a great deal of bureaucracy. Most of the mural projects are enabled by the homeowners, so there’s definitely more room to grow.” Street Report BAba und Foi Net! 67
