    For the occasion of the expo “Chained” organized by Wunderkammern Gallery, a new large scale mural was made in the city of Milan by the artist Ripo. The gallery, normally located in Rome, took advantage of the focus put on the Expo Milano 2015 and initiated an event where artist like C215 and Sam3 came to participate before the opening on the 30th of June.

    Regarding the work of Ripo, the title reveals quite clearly what lies behind his idea. “The Futility and Necessity of our Repetitive and Self-Negating Actions.” The work is based on a previous canvas piece made by the artist himself, a work where different texts are mixed together due to the process of creating and partially destroying each layer.

    Montana Colors presents another addition to the list of MTN Limited Editions. OG Slick is the artist starring in this new collaboration.

    Orginally from Hawaii, Richard P. Wyrgatsch moved to Los Angeles when he was 18, fleeing from vandal persecution and with the objective to carve himself a career as a professional artist. During his time in the Otis Parson Art and Design School, he joined the crew, K.II.S, thanks to his solidified past as an aerosol artist in the 80’s. His work stands out for its uniqueness in the graffiti art scene because of his artistic training and intuitive sense of composition, and his style is a mix of pop culture and street aesthetic.

  • SPY, ‘CRISIS’

    spy_crisis_9

    Spy has surprised us again with a spectacular intervention that makes the describing of his art as, “urban art”, to fall short.

    In the context of a crisis like that of Spain, the result has been a paradoxical translation in the increase of wealth amongst a certain few. Spy has expressed his criticism by means of an artwork that aside from being surprising, incites reflection and provokes an inertial behaviour in its viewers.

  • ARYZ, ‘DUALITY’

    Tres por uno es la oferta que Aryz ha ofrecido al centro Forum Cultural Forum Carballo, situado en el municipio de La Coruña (España) que lleva el mismo nombre. El espacio decorado forma parte de un proyecto enfocado a la dinamización del empleo y la creación de oportunidades de negocio.

    Una buena localización para esta obra del artista Aryz cuyo tema, la dualidad, es abordado de tres formas diferentes. La ejecución de las tres paredes le ha costado al chico de Cardedeu nada mas y nada menos que diez días de duro trabajo, ya que se ha enfrentado a la producción sin precisar ayudantes de ningún tipo. Nos quitamos el sombrero otra vez, Aryz.

  • DONUT NEW LOOK

    In 1997, Montana Colors brought along an important invention to the revolution within the development of aerosol products. Back then, the only way to identify a color was through the indication on the top cover or the labeling on the side of the can, which in its turn made it difficult when using various types of different colors. As a solution to this Montana Colors invented and patented the “Donut“, the indicating “ring” which now can be found on almost all spray paints.

    Since everything has to be renewed, the “Donut ” itself has also gone through a makeover in its design. The Donut of the new cans includes a relief in the form of the MTN logotype, giving the Donut a more recognizable identity, completely linked to our brand. (more…)
