For us at MONTANA-CANS, it is immeasurably important to have a close connection to our friends and partners who use our tools. This need for a close correlation has led us to support and sponsor an amazing amount of incredible events and projects, and helped us to establish collaborations with numerous artists, brands and partners. We are grateful to be in a position to be able to provide this kind of support, and thankful for the abundance of inspirations and ideas that artists and collaboration partners from all across the world share with us. We make it a point to feature these projects and collaborations on our blog and and social media channels, but because of the fast-paced hustle and bustle of the internet, we have decided it was time to create a printed collection which contains merely a small fraction of the creative work we have been involved in over the past years.

From the scene, for the scene.// HAFENDAMPF „Hafendampf“ has sure put an end to that rumor: Thanks to the bounty of industries, the graffiti scene in the Ruhr Valley is quite notable. The great quality and the high volume of graffiti output made it obvious that the Ruhr Valley’s metropolis Essen needed to take advantage of this talent. In the summer of 2013, the first „Hafendampf“ was held. 35
