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.

The last 10 years has

The last 10 years has been a dynamic period for graffiti, urban art and street culture in Austria. With Vienna being the capital, it has also served as the hotspot for artists to come together, imagine and create. In the wave of activity, the art consultancy agency "Concrete" has been in the thick of it all. Not to mention a driving force in the need and consumption, of Montana Cans products in Vienna. Through their hard work and increased agency jobs, a logical idea arose that maybe they should be a destination for materials and ideas. On Saturday 26th of May 2018, the MONTANA STORE VIENNA x CONCRETE was born. The store unites all the strengths of the Austrian graffiti movement in one location. A Consulting space for Concrete to base themselves, a location that stocks the worlds number one paint brand (Montana Cans) with it's whole product range, an exhibiting space for world class graffiti/ urban/ fine art, a venue for inspiring events and a new "go-to" location for writers and artists alike, to exchange ideas and build relationships. 82
