Every organisation that was built up on passion and a love of what they do, finds themselves more and more pro-active in their work each year. Montana Cans is no exception as we strive to make the best cans on earth. But that is no excuse to reflect on all the extra curriculum activities like collaborations, festival, project and artist support that happen through the year as well. After all this helped create history. The Montana Cans LOOKBOOK gives an outlet to remember, reflect and reward those who deserve a little extra attention with some extra glow of the spotlight. With great pleasure, we announce the online release of the Montana Cans LOOKBOOK 2019, looking back at some of the highlights of 2019. This edition delves into many projects such as the Montana Cans limited edition cans that featured Mina & Bruce (plus interview), Felipe Pantone, Most and Flying Förtress. We reminisce on the cool collabo's we were involved in with Happy Socks, Good Guy Boris and Reebok Sneakers. We get re-inspired by feature articles on artists IMAGINE, THE LONDON POLICE, FRAU ISA, 1010 and 1UP CREW. We take a look at some of the urban art festivals that raised the bar even higher like METROPOLINK, POW!WOW ROTTERDAM and the THE BERLIN MURAL FESTIVAL. With eyes wide open we scratch under the surface of some alternative disciplines within graffiti culture. The spotlight gets turned on ABSTRACT LETTERING, GRAFFITI ON FREIGHTS and CALLIGRAFFITI. We share some knowledge on the new products like the Montana BLACK INFRA colors and Montana BOLD marker line, which took the industry by storm. Just as the special moment that was the grand opening of the MONTANA STORE VIENNA with our industry partners CONCRETE, did. All this and more over 160 enthralling full color pages.

In the European summer

In the European summer of 2018, Frau Isa who is also member of the now European wide collective "The WEIRD", arrived in Mannheim, Germany with the challenge of painting an eight story building for the Stadt.Wand.Kunst festival. With a bit of support from her husband Oliver and crew mate Cone (also of "The WEIRD" crew), the mural took shape in the Mannheim urban landscape and the warm pallet brought a positive glow to the streetscape that is now adored by all. Frau Isa rose to the occasion creating the mural titled "Aeskulap". After the Aeskulap mural, we invited ourselves to visit Frau Isa in her studio/office "WALD UND SCHWERT" in Vienna, Austria. The visit enabled us to take a peak into where she thinks, creates and ponders on both free and commercial art projects. The occasion also brought on the opportunity to film the newest edition of the Montana "ACRYLIC SERIES" films. Her studio was well prepared with all the tools of a master crafts person. Montana GOLD, Montana ACRYLIC markers, Montana ACRYLIC Empties and ACRYLIC Refill paints. It was obvious to see that Frau Isa was as comfortable with small scale art making as she was with large mural work. Not disappointing, we were drawn into the world of someone who has many worlds moving at once. With passion and vigor, she brings her creativity and personality into world that has enough room for color. 68
