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.

In total ignorance and com ­ plete absence of influences or guidance, LAIA started to master her craft which 20 years on is still part of her daily routine. Although not outgrowing the streets, LAIA also became active in galleries, online and in the studio. What was a city-based thing became an international affair with participation in Graffiti events and jams taking her through her country and abroad. As with all dedicated writers, connections become friends and actions strengthen friendships. For this talented Spanish writer, even with 20 years of hard work behind her, the world is her oyster and we are bound to see a whole more. The then 14-year-old took to the streets alone as she decided she wanted to »get up«. ← As comfortable with a brush and a bottle of Montana ACRYLIC paint as she is with a can and a wall. ↓ Her hand finished printed works take her creative edge onto paper as well. She started this whole graffiti journey alone. Not moving in the security of a crew and not pay ing attention to any limits or constraints that graffiti culture may carry with it.
