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.

SUPERSPRAY’s graffiti

SUPERSPRAY’s graffiti practice is not just reliant on classic letter-based graffiti alone. The visual references that find their way into his paintings, (sometimes repeatedly), can vary from blockbusters, bubble letters, semi-wild styles to classic New York-influenced styles. An endless variety of cartoon-inspired characters, all the way through to illustrative and humorous renditions of his friends and favorite graffiti writers. References to periods in time, like the dynamic colors and imagery of art from the 60s and 70s. Even cultural references like 90s rave culture and psychedelic art make you wonder how old he is? Not forgetting his seemingly effortless ability to play with words. All this with unquestionable technical skill and the knowledge of what to apply where. Clean or dirty, straight or rounded. Just like the dried-up hot dog being kept warm under the heat lights of the traditional German Döner Imbiss, when you’re hungry for inspiration HOT DOG’s pieces never disappoint. An endless variety of cartooninspired characters, all the way through to illustrative and humorous renditions of his friends and favorite graffiti writers ↖ As seen before but in a whole new way. Every HOT DOG piece is like a futuristic trip to the past. ↑ GBR, Ghetto Blasters, or Ghetto Bromance? The possibilities do not start, or end, with the history of graffiti. ↓ A technique for every occasion. If it’s hot, he will try it. ← The classic rock background with pieces extruding interpreted in that unique SU- PERSPRAY way. point. ← Pushing styles further on paper and walls, even the drawn versions of HOT DOG pieces don’t disappoint. 94 Artist in Focus Superspray

↗ Time to play ball. Although it is a lot harder to concentrate on your game when in a room full of HOT DOG pieces. ↓ Where does it start, and where does it end? This skatepark scene is one not to be missed. Artist in Focus Superspray 95
