Montana BLACK Artist Series

MONTANA-CANS prides itself on the recently introduced limited edition Artist Series cans. Each can will feature a world renowned artist that will have the opportunity to design personalised artwork for their favourite Montana BLACK color, from the 187 colors in the Montana BLACK range. These designs are then implemented for a limited time in the production of the artists chosen color. Thus making any versions of the Artist Series cans exclusive, functional and collectable. These designs will be featured 4 times a year at the same price as the regular version. So grab them while they are available! (Note: Can not be ordered specifically. Limited edition cans supplied as regular color!)



Two icons that immediately come to mind as pretty much owning the color pink are Hello Kitty and Buff Monster. No surprise as to which color Buff Monster chose after agreeing to design one of our special BLACK artist edition cans for us: our P 4000 „Power Pink“. To him, the color pink symbolizes confidence, individuality and happiness. Of course, all of his distinctive Buff Monster design elements like dripping ice-cream, one-eyed monsters and skulls are integrated into the design. The typical Buff Monster character has two teeth and freckles and seems to drip like melting ice-cream. The can design sports three of these little fellows, plus he decided to use a cool technique in which a few chosen elements have been left out in the litho printing process, leaving the aluminum colored base of the litho exposed for a metallic effect. The New York-based artist was originally known for his street art, but has extended his work over the course of the past 15 years to include collaborations with readily recognizable brands and the creation of vinyl and resin toys, prints, shirts, stickers and trading cards. He also has created a range of limited edition collectables, one of which is now this one-of-a-kind Montana BLACK artist edition can.

Montana Black Artist Edition

We like to think that our design is one feature on a list of many aspects that sets us apart from other can manufacturers. For the creation of our sleek litho design, the can became our canvas. And even though we take great pride in the value of brand recognition we have created, we wanted to invite artists to use our can as their canvas and create a special edition series for artists, our fans, collectors and us. The Montana BLACK artist edition was brought to life. Each quarter, a new can is released which features world renowned artists of our choosing. The artist gets to pick his or her favorite color out of the 187 shades in the BLACK range, and create their design, which reflects their interpretation of the name of this shade for the lithographed can. This design will then be implemented for a limited time in the production of the artist’s chosen color, making the can not only functional but an exclusive limited-edition-collectable. Our goal was to create a concept which would allow the artist to put their personal touch and creativity on the can, knowing that it will be distributed all around the world and would also reward us with a personalized design of renown artists. So, we were faced with an agonizing choice, finally zeroing in on the first artist to launch our Montana BLACK artist edition series.
