MontanaCans LOOKBOOK 2023 Issue #8 It's that time again to welcome the release of the Montana Cans Lookbook 2023 edition #8. 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".

G Athens has always been

G Athens has always been a meeting center for many types of arts throughout the years. When it comes to the graffiti side there is a very strong core of talented people in both its illegal and legal forms. Over the years I have experienced both sides and respect them equally. In my opinion, Athens is an easy city to paint. I think this is the reason why more and more writers have been visiting it in recent years. For me, you can paint wherever you want except to destroy statues and monuments. MC Over your graffiti history, what role have graffiti tourists or visitors to Athens had on how your local scene has developed? G I think that the interaction with other countries in this piece played a very important role in our country and its evolution in graffiti. Apart from the tourists who come every month for holidays and to paint in our country, historical graffiti festivals have also taken place in Athens in the past with invited important writers from other countries. This to a large extent shaped the subsequent development of this culture in our country. In my opinion, one of the highlights was the festival in Thisio in 1998 with invited historical writers such as Seen, Ces, Cantwo, etc. I was also always struck by how beautifully this blue blended with the sunlight-white walls and red flowers of the island. As well as the red life jackets of the ships I traveled on. ↑ Inside, outside, or on the street?

Blues, reds, black, and white are GO- SPEL’s vocabulary. 38 Artist in focus/Interview Gospel

Atlantis the god of the sea. Ruler of the ocean life, collector of thrown away plastic bottles. MC If you could live and work in another city outside of Greece, which would it be and why? G I would choose Rome or Barcelona I think. I admire the Italian as well as the Spanish culture and I think it is very close to the Greek in terms of mentality and aesthetics. MC What is your favorite Montana Cans cap and can combination and why? G My favorite Montana Cans cap is the ‘’Level 1’’ cap. It is very convenient for me because it is very precise and helps me a lot in making very clean lines and details. Also, its other very basic advantage is that it is very soft and ideal for painting for long hours without straining my hand. My favorite Montana Cans Black color combination is ‘’LOLLIPOP-HORIZON-BABY BLUE-SNOW WHITE-BLACK’’ GOSPEL has well and truly shown that contemporary graffiti doesn't have to look like the many generations of graffiti before it. And yet still have the same weight and substance in a different context. This however doesn't give us any secrets as to which direction GOSPEL graffiti will go in the future. All the more reason to keep observing and following his work. You can do that here:@gospel.ath Artist in focus/Interview Gospel 39
