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!)

What is a DMOTE? Depending on where you come from, the word DMOTE itself can lead to a plethora of pronunciations. But in the graffiti community, there is no confusion of what it is, or rather who! DMOTE is a globally respected Australian born artist who works and resides in New York. With a footprint that spans the globe, DMOTE has left reminders of his artistic existence on nearly every continent. Mosquito bites maybe, but his influence and visual reach has left large aesthetic scars on the streetscape of the world graffiti scene. With his strong graphical senses and his hard working ethic since the mid 80’s, DMOTE has come a long way since his humble beginnings in the suburbs of Sydney. Embracing all sides of the visual spectrum, DMOTE has managed to transcend the energy of his miss spent youth doing graffiti and expand into the fields of design, illustration, painting, curation and fine art. Unlike many before him, he has managed to keep the thread strong and tight between graffiti and the “other” forms of art he practices. The result is an uncompromisingly strong visual presence with its integrity firmly intact, both feet in the street. It is with all these points in mind that we are proud to feature DMOTE in our Montana Cans artist series can collection. His diversity and quirkiness is well placed in the chosen Montana BLACK color, “Purple Rain”.

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.
