Montana Cans LOOKBOOK 2022 Edition #7 It's that time again to welcome the release of the Montana Cans Lookbook 2022 edition #7. There is no rewind button on life, making it all the more important to reflect on the year that was, and the things that happened during that period. The Montana-Cans Lookbook does just that and reflects on some of the highlights from the year prior. A moment to reflect on those things that may not have received as much shine as they deserved while being "in the moment". The 2021/2022 period was a particularly unique period not only for Montana Cans but for the world as a whole. Mankind arrived at what we hope is the end of the Coronavirus pandemic, there was turbulence in many regions, and the global population started to come to terms with the new financial challenges of life. But apart from increasing prices and challenging health/social situations, there were also many positive moments that brought innovation, fun, color, and creativity back into our lives. The Montana Cans collaborations continued with our many partners, artistic friends, and organizations within the creative world, including a vast array of amazing limited-edition cans, cool collectible products, and new innovations that make painting and creating even more enjoyable than before. Countless brave event organizers pushed forward with their dreams and their world-class events, with Montana Cans as partners on board regardless of the social and political hurdles put in place in the name of health and safety. And off the radar, the global graffiti community kept on creating and pushing our culture forward despite the challenges put in place around them. Regardless of where you were in 2021/2022, steel, bricks, canvas, furniture, and even clothing all got a special creative touch that Montana Cans was proud to be part of. With this in mind, we present to you the Montana-Cans Lookbook 2022 Edition #7 for your enjoyment. Available here digitally and in limited amounts in print at selected Montana Cans partners and resellers.

↑ There is no second

↑ There is no second chance. When SWEET UNO is ready to put on the outline, it has to be right the first time. ↗ The calm before the storm, or was that afterward? The only thing slowing the artist down was the downpour of rain before the sun came out again. ↗ The act of outlining is not just a physical one for SWEET UNO. Like a dance or a performance, his hands, eyes, and body all move in sync with his mind. There was no second chance for SWEET UNO when it came to putting on his final outlines. Every spray stroke, line, and movement had to be repeated in the same way → Almost there. Filling in the boxes one piece at a time. The artist, who is renowned for his less is more approach, came up with a concept that was completely void of tricks or effects. The flavor of the day was one unique throw-up/piece design, repeated throughout 10 garage doors, with the simple formula of Black outline, and one dynamic color per door running in a smooth color gradient. A concept that was light work for the chosen Montana BLACK range colors that covered the doors with ease and efficiency. There was no second chance for SWEET UNO when it came to putting on his final outlines. Every spray stroke, line, and movement had to be repeated in the same way to achieve the effect of having the same piece repeating over and over again in a different colored fill-in. Work that was made light by SWEET UNO who made it look like an on-stage performance of movement and vigor. There was nothing that could stop him, except for the rain! But even that came to an end, allowing the artist to bring his idea to completion. Take a look here at how unused garages are turned into a life-sized outdoor urban art gallery by SWEET UNO. 104 Production SWEET UNO
