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.

← The stairway to heaven. How often can anyone say that they have painted in an abandoned shopping mall? ↓ Contemporary art in contemporary architecture. The surreal experience of painting a space that should be full of people. Take a look here at a Chinese version of being locked down ↑ Abandoned locations are often old and not well maintained. Which made this painting adventure extremely unique. TOGETHER IN SEPARATION This is exactly the case for Australian artist Yok, and his Singaporean wife Sheryo. Once Corona restrictions came into force, Yok, who could no longer leave China, was unable to see his beloved Sheryo who was stuck in Bali. What is at first an uncomfortable situation, is later an invitation to be creative with the extra time one has been given. 72 Artist in focus Yok and Sheryo

Yok has done just that and made something good from a situation that for him is bad. And the fruit of his new spare time is graffiti. In an abandoned mall in China, Yok unloaded some of his frustrations and developed his graffiti writing craft. With a little help from his Montana BLACK and GOLD cans, things got a little easier to deal with, and a lot more colorful. And he connected with his beloved Sheryo on a different level. Take a look here at a Chinese version of being locked down. And may the next Spraycation be just around the corner. ↑ Yok’s exeptional eye for color makes each piece as engaging as the next. ← No rules required. Yok reinvents graffiti for himself. → The reoccurring feline figure is common amongst Yok’s works. → Using the color chrome cleverly is not as easy as it sounds. In this image it takes a while before the viewer even realizes it. Artist in focus Yok and Sheryo 73
