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.

HAFENDAMPF literal translates to „harbor’s steam“ – Ahoy! A graffiti gallery on concrete pillars was created in the cities harbor-hood right below the Autobahn A42. Many fantastic local sprayers came to participate, and 36

there were a few acclaimed German artists who travelled to take part, including Flying Förtress, JBCB, 463, Blues and GBR. This crowd of creative minds made „Hafendampf“ the largest graffiti jam in North Rhine-Westphalia. Since the 90’s, there haven’t been any graffiti related events or get-togethers in the area of the Ruhr Valley. This fact, and the volition to offer the graffiti scene a platform to come together and exchange experiences and project ideas, was the reason for the first „Hafendampf“, and continues to be the axiom of this event. This passionate commitment to act on their maxim was one of the most important reasons for us at Montana to get involved. We know our sponsored cans have been put to good use giving Essen a face-lift in graffiti-style. Initially, the „Hafendampf“ was created as a graffiti happening with the a deliberately chosen emphasis on writers and sprayers from Ruhr Valley. A wider more international crowd would be welcome to join in in the future. // I DREAM OF THINGS THAT NEVER WERE AND ASK WHY NOT?// 37
