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.

↑ “PANT 1 TWO”. A playful tip of the hat to PANTONE, the Spanish graffiti artist turned fine artist. → Even football (or soccer) gets a mention in the SUPER- SPRAY arsenal of graffiti humor. ↑ BLADE. A homage to a king in his own style with a unique characterized portrait of BLADE himself. Another aspect SUPER- SPRAY has become known for. ↓ Another HOT DOG rendition of respected graffiti icons. This time a respectful version of the OS GE- MEOS brothers. Whether it be a homage to a graffiti legend or a new invention of a re-invention, his work is often so simple that it appears complicated. And the same in reverse. ↓ Stars, fades, and style. This HOT DOG piece comes complete with “GOBERTO REISSINI” shout-out. ↓ Even SEEN couldn’t escape the SUPER- SPRAY homage and unique personalized portrait. 90 Artist in Focus Superspray

There are many factors to SUPERSPRAY’s graffiti writing that make him a standout artist from the vast array of talent coming out of his home city Hamburg, out of Germany, and from abroad. Style is just one of them. Although his pieces have often referred to those who came before him, his style is always unique and recognizable as only his. Whether it be a homage to a graffiti legend or a new invention of a re-invention, his work is often so simple that it appears complicated. And the same in reverse. SUPERSPRAY is not afraid to paint outside the box. Or the circle, the background, or any other shape for that matter. As touched on in the essay by Jim129, for those that look at a SUPERSPRAY piece for the first time unaware of who he is or what he does, they could quickly come to the assumption that it may have been done by a toy. However, in an even quicker period of time, they promptly come to the realization that the artwork that they are being dazzled by has been done by a technically apt graffiti veteran who has made a conscious decision to paint the piece exactly as he wanted. With a touch of rebellion and a healthy dose of humor, SUPERSPRAY, HOT DOG, RIPS (or whatever it is you may think you know of him as), has carved a path in his local, national, and international graffiti scene with a fuck you attitude that is well received all over the world. ↓ An intriguing choice of repetition, two colors, and simple hand styles. Even HOT DOG tags stand out from the crowd. Artist in Focus Superspray 91
