In the beginning of March El Montana Cafè Restaurant in Barcelona hosted the launch of the documentary made about Open Walls Conference 2015, and today we have the honor to present it online.
Eight minutes of video where some of the starring artists form the 2015 edition of the event explains their own interventions and gets us close to their own perspective on public art. This is a work which not only lets us see the most intimate side of each artist and their creations, but it also offers a privileged view from the inside of both the process and the final results.

After the collaborations with Buny and Ausias Pérez for the MTN Street Markers and MTN Street Ink, a new team of writers based in Madrid takes over the control of this new Montana Colors marker and water based paint supply. Albhe, Blize, Sarayk DKB, and Ma Money experience the power of the MTN Water Based paint on paper and glass, and the big sheet of glass at the Montana Shop Madrid became the canvas for their handstyles with the different available tips.
Can you take pictures with spray paint? That question, though seemingly absurd, is answered in the following video provided by Phillippe Mastrocola, who has reached new heights as far as recycling spray cans is concerned.
