After years of writing graffiti, JACE wanted to reaffirm himself through the creation of the “Gouzou”; a faceless, genderless, ochre colored character, executed with simple, stylistically recognizable line work, that led him to gaining popularity first in his hometown, Reunion Island, and later on the international urban scene. Whether it be hanging off a cliff, leaning on a treasure chest on the beach, tied to a weight on the bottom of the sea, or caught in the spin cycle of a washing machine, Gouzou is always represented in a happy and colorful way.
Although JACE has exhibited the Gouzous in many corners of the world (in countries and cities including Le Havre, Paris, Budapest, Tunisia, Thailand, Madagascar, Mauritius, Hong Kong, New York…), he is more well known on Reunion Island where even the tourist websites promote his work as an attraction; something that is quite uncommon in the terrain of illegal artwork.
After having worked for 23 years on the same character, this wonderful artist and urban regulator still finds a way to delight, surprise, and impress us in the most unexpected places.
Stainless steel, stackable modules for building the MTN Spray Paint wall display unit. The thin steel separation walls save space and allow for more paint to be stored.
While storing paint the modules simultaneously display the color palette in an orderly way.
Each module has 25 helves, and each shelf can store 12 cans.
Total capacity per 12 x 25 module = 300 cans.
* The modules are stackable and allow you to customize your walls in an easy and safe manner. The modules are joined together with small screws and then stabilized by easily fastening them to the wall.

Aerosols can contaminate if they are not used properly. This is why we encourage recycling cans once they are empty. They should be taken to the appropriate recycling container or center or to any of the hundreds of MTN trash can holders at shops where our products are distributed.
We work with the sensitivity of a craftsman; the best tool for creating and beautifying and up-lifting dark and colorless places. We have a mutual agreement with the environment. “What starts off good, should end good.”
“Can you count?”, Cyrus said in ‘The Warriors’.
“Can you count? Can you imagine the amount of empty cans that there are in the world?” The majority, unfortunately, end up being thrown on the ground of halls of game, yards, tunnels, etc…
The people from CanLove, via their new project, CANLOVE: 1500 Project, propose doing something with those dirty, rusted spray cans: collecting, manipulating, and cutting them, and using the parts to construct something new.
From Montana Colors, true to our slogan, Keep the Planet Clean, we are participating by offering 1,500 unsellable white 94 cans, which the people at CanLove have used to make a huge canvas for painting upon.
