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".

MONTANACANSLOOKBOOK2023Graffiti has come a long way. What wasstarted by youth as an exploration of self ina social environment that didn't seem tocare if they were there, has led to becominga global voice, practiced by many, andheard by many more. Graffiti is everywhere.In every free country and city, and probablyeven in those that are not. Spreading like apandemic, contracting graffiti is notlife-threatening and is much more fun. It isa part of the human condition, like a webthat weaves the fabric of society together,regardless of socio-economic status, language,location, education, or gender. To dograffiti you just need an idea, and fromthere you can transport it onto paper, walls,streets, yards, or even your tablet.The Montana LOOKBOOK is a homageto this way of life we call graffiti.
