The latest project by Os Gemeos took place within the framework of the Vancouver Biennale. These silos in an industrial area of the city (Granville Island) have become the canvas for their last production; giants dressed with their characters’ classic attire, using Montana Colors products.
Graffiti and mural interventions function as architectural and aesthetic solutions within major cities. Color works as a remedy that can improve people’s moods, and as it’s been proved, grants cities with a different overall feel, and contrasts the habitual grey of concrete.
The Biennale included this project in a crow-funding campaign in order to cover the costs that were generated. If you’d like to participate with your two cents, click here.

Last Friday, July 18th, we celebrated our 20th Anniversary with all of the employees from the Barcelona factory. We were also accompanied by BELIN who produced a very special piece for us in homage to our employees from the packaging department who are an invaluable part of our handmade process.
We might not be on the same level as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory but it wasn't that bad was it?
Since 1994 the founders of Montana Colors have promised as one of their objectives and standards, to guarantee that all products meet all the most rigorous requirements for preserving the environment and health of graffiti writers.
We have demonstrated our capability to produce products, transport them, and sell them, minimizing the the environmental impact. We are committed to making sure the future generations have a better world.
We have always used the iconic “Keep The Planet Clean”, became pioneers on a global level by collecting empty spray cans and educating and up-lifting awareness of our clients. All of our products our made with completely recyclable materials.
We uphold the ISO 9001 certification for our quality control as well as the ISO 14001, which guarantees our commitment to the environment. Together the quality level and reward for a job well done is attributed to our entire staff and the support and recognition we get from our clients.
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.
