    It has not even been a week since the release of MADMAXXX and we have already found a video showing its great ability to fill large spaces in no time.
    The crews TRG and THC takes good advantage of this killer aerosol in the making of a “married couple” done in the Berlin metro with a velocity never seen before. It has to be pointed out that the easy usage and control of this product can, as you can see, even be used to make lines despite its powerful thrust.
    The Second Spring was in charge of documenting this action which was published by I Love Graffiti.

    Already a few decades ago, graffiti had become a global movement that was practiced all over the world. However, sometimes it’s worth going over this complicated process that functioned differently in each geographical region. With the hopes to shed light on the history of Domincan Republican graffiti, the “Marcando Territorio” documentary was born; 14 minutes of footage that help us in understanding the movement in this Caribbean country. Upon viewing, it’s interesting to compare the similarities and underline the differences of the phenomenon with respect to other places in the world.

    Montana Colors Caribbean has sent us this interesting audiovisual piece that provides some textual insight on the content of this university project conducted by Victoria Cabrera Chelin and Camila Santana.

  • ÚS BARCELONA 2016 RECAP

    If ÚsBarcelona can be described as an “art ritual in public space” it’s because this year it is much more than a street art festival. After having celebrated two editions, the proposal has been extending its roots to a much more broadened artistic perspective. Although muralism is a fundamental component and the foundation for the project, it’s just a fragment of the festival’s stimulating creative selection.

    Basing itself off the appropriation of public space for artistic creation and art as a dynamic and dignifying element in the urban sphere, Ús has consolidated itself as a vanguard platform for presenting new formats, trends, and artistic proposals at street level. It’s tough to summarize all that transpired in this past edition with a video and some images but we’re going to make an attempt.

  • NEEQUAYE DREPH X ‘GAME OF THRONES’

    What is the difference between a graffiti artist and a graffiti writer? Not much maybe, but one of the things which might state a contrast between the two is that the artist takes it a step further, this way enabling interest of people from outside of the graffiti world. People with no previous knowledge or interest of the field from before.
    Neequaye Dreph fits in perfectly to this profile, and, even if us at MTN-World have published articles showing proof of his versatility earlier he still never stops surprising us. This time we get to see it through a composition titled “Game of Thrones”, based on, and inspired by the TV show. A perfect way to represent the London based graffiti art collective Graffiti Kings. Both the long career and the constant activity of this British writer reminds us of the fact that the title “king” lasts a lifetime.

  • OZ MONTANÍA X MART AIRE X ARTESANO PROJECT

    They’re always on the ball and Tostfilms have kept a close tab on the collaboration between Oz Montanía and Mart Aire for the Artesano Project held in San Pedro de Marcorís, Dominican Republic. The two artists’ styles, though different, share a powerful color sense and have been integrated into a building that their work now forms a part of. Both of these interventions are situated in an exotic location and are presented to us via bird’s eye view in a brief yet captivating production. As always, we’d like to give a special shout out to our distributors in the region, Montana Colors Caribbean.
