The Montana-Cans LOOKBOOK 2020 – Looking back to move forward to a new generation Seeing 2019 come to end was a particularly exciting thing. Not only were we the team at Montana-Cans excited by the things to come, but we also enjoyed the chance to reflect and pay tribute to all the creators, partners and supporters that helped make all we achieved possible. Ending 2019 was also joined with the realization that we had just ended a decade and started a new generation. For this very reason, the Montana-Cans LOOKBOOK 2020 is jammed packed with exceptional content. Available now in limited hard copies and digitally in the link below, we took time to revisit some of the pivotal moments, like the progress of the Montana BLACK Artist Can Series featuring DEMS and RAGE, the biggest ever Montana Cans logo mural in the LA spray day. We took a peek at the lives of the movers and shakers like Odeith and his very unique take on painting, the LOW BROS at METROPOLINK. We took some time to see the world at the home of SOBEKCIS. We shared some words with HOW & NOSM while they were working on an epic mural for the Boulevard 13 project in Paris. Artists such as Amber Vittoria and DMOTE let us into their studios to share some of their more private works. For the more under the radar artworks, we featured some of the works of veterans of steel in the form of the U.S TCI crew and their efforts on the freight trains. While OSMAN flew the European flag for innovative commuter train artwork. And while in Europe (or at least for now still in Europe), we put the magnifying glass on the UK exposing some refreshing approaches to graffiti by VOYDER, 45RPM, and PREF. "Bring The Paint" beeped heavily on the international event radar, bringing world-class graffiti art and muralism together in one space. While far away over the ocean the team at POW! WOW! and the GREETINGS TOUR teams moved from strength to strength making the international art calendar a monumental one. All this and more. With a big THANK YOU we invite you to spend some time and take a look at the Montana-Cans LOOKBOOK 2020.

5 Graffiti and its peripheral disciplines happen everywhere, every day, constantly. Some cities are famous for their train scene, others for the mural seen. But in an area as diverse and populated as the UK, there is always a little (or a lot) of everything happening all at once. With most of its terrain being connected by land, travel is easy and a UK artist can be just as active in the south as they can be in the north at any given time if they can transport themselves from place to place. But there is one epicenter that all gravitate to at some point. No other city on earth ticks quite like London. And as such, no other creative scene nurtures graffiti, urban art, street art and fine art quite like London does. 6 7 1 Permanent or not, in cities like London where legality is fluid, there are always Halls Of Fame that come and go like this one in Shoreditch. 2 Not dissimilar to any other design or fine art studio, PREF’s workspace does not give away his graffiti heritage. 3 In this homage to the Montana MARBLE EFFECT red color, VOYDER brings illusion to epic proportions. 4 Some of the best places to paint are those that are off the beaten track, as PREF shows here while walking through the inner suburban jungles of London. 5 Inspiration comes in all forms. You just need to have your eyes open to realize it. 6 Striking, clever and funny. 45RPM’s walking hand design proves that the pink and black color way are always in fashion. 7 Using bomb imagery while dropping street bombs. 45RPM can connect the visual dots on the street just as well as in the studio.
