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.

Introducing Rubae

Introducing Rubae Location Kiev, Ukraine Photography RUBAE Profile @rubae1 of the LEGZ Crew Running the new ground “Nowadays, you don’t surprise anyone with standard and classic graffiti”. Whether or not this statement is accurate could very much dependent on who is saying it and where they are. For the Ukrainian graffiti artist RUBAE of the LEGZ crew, it more or less sums up his current approach to his prolific graffiti practice on the Ukrainian “Kovalska” freight train wagons. ↓ The sky is the limit for RUBAE at the top of his game. 76 Artist in focus Rubae

As well as innovative graffiti styles, he focuses on a clever choice of reinvented iconic brand logos with his brand of technically apt graffiti style writing. With an exceptional choice of Montana BLACK can colors, his work formula is clear, readable, and accessible so that any member of the public can read and identify with it as well as maintaining a dialogue with his fellow initiated graffiti writers who come from all over to leave their mark on the Kovalska trains. Since 2002, RUBAE has been an active graffiti writer developing a well-established name for himself in his home city Kyiv and beyond. His original thirst and interest in commuter, metro, and subway trains had long been quenched as he concluded that the level of reward for effort seemed less and less valid to paint them. This made the transition in 2017 to focus on the green “Kovalska” wagons seem like an easy one. 480 smooth green wagons with no ridges in a size that is perfect for a single writer to cover with quality seemed as inviting as the ease to do them and the reward of seeing them constantly running the new ground in traffic. Taking their goods from the quarry to multiple destinations around the city with 50 to 100 painted wagons rolling together through Kyiv on any single run. ↑ ↑ In a move that brought peace to all parties, the Kovalska train markings were moved to the upper part of each wagon to stay legible for workers and make space for the graffiti below. ↑ Business as usual after the arrival of the Coronavirus. While the world turned white in fear, the freight trains became brighter than ever. Since 2002, RUBAE has been an active graffiti writer developing a well-established name for himself in his home city Kyiv and beyond ↑ The simple style that caught the eyes of many and made RUBAE shine through the cold Ukrainian winters. → “Caution, wet paint.” And warning tape to match. Don't cross this line, at least not if you intend to go over his piece. Artist in focus Rubae 77
