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. https://www.montana-cans.com/

But it is not all blue

But it is not all blue skies and happy days. The many spots surrounding the city’s South and East are cloaked in a blanket of uncertainty. Although there are clear legal open halls of fame, what is one day a legal wall can the following day be a place for on the spot fines and being escorted away. Even this, however, adds to the city’s charm and gives more kudos to those artists that manage to rise above the norm and take their artwork to more openly celebrated spots and later the world. One of those spots is Shoreditch in East London. A known meeting point for street art, graffiti, and fine art lovers, if it isn’t the great food and cool bars that get you hooked, then maybe it’s the wall you’ve got to paint that is frequented by the many street art tours with international visitors. All recording your work for instant multiplication online in cities and countries far and wide. The list of talented writers from the UK could go on for miles and miles. But in a creative hub like London, not everyone stands out. In 2019 we had the chance to get a little closer to three extremely talented writers who are holding the torch up high for UK graffiti. Those artists were 45RPM, VOYDER and PREF ID. 8 9 Although there are clear legal open halls of fame, what is one day a legal wall can the following day be a place for on the spot fines and being escorted away. 8 Big Brother watching, or a graffiti artist in disguise getting a photo of their illegal painting? In his design work, consciously or not 45RPM triggers feelings and emotions from the graffiti game. 9 45RPM extending on the timeless graffiti notion that »everybody’s got their own arrows« 68 Street Report GRAFFITI IN THE UK

10 Take yourself back to 1999. Not quite London but not that far from it either, 45RPM started his quest to merge humor, graffiti and illustration into the unique style that he boasts today. His self confessed, »Goofy Nonsense« not only brightens any surface he graces, but it also brings a smile to your dial as characters interact with the letters he has perfected. 10 Outline, Montana GOLD cans and beverages. The classic combination for a day at the wall. Umbrella's not included. His self confessed, »Goofy Nonsense« not only brightens any surface he graces, but it also brings a smile to your dial as characters interact with the letters he has perfected Street Report GRAFFITI IN THE UK 69
