Historia Timeline
1987. Graffiti arrives in Barcelona. First exposure.

If you had to choose the starting point of Graffiti in Barcelona, you would have to mention the ‘Spray Safari’ mural painted by the Trepax Collective, amongst others, in 1987. It was directly opposite this wall, located at Calle Jaen in the Distrito de Gracia, where founder of Montana Colors, Jordi Rubio, would park his car while visiting his favorite rock-climbing store.

At this moment he could never have imagined, upon seeing that first imagery, that it would bring about a new reality that would change his life forever. 




1993. Second encounter. The arrival of inspiration.
A few years later, in May 1993 you could find Jordi Rubio busy working as a young business executive at the paint company, Felton. One day, after analyzing the markets falling under his responsibility, he discovers that one of his retail stores in particular is showing far superior sales than that of any of his other clients. He visited this hardware/gardening business to try and understand the reasons for this particular outstanding sales record.
One of the shops employees, Moockie—who was also a well-respected local writer—spoke of the phenomenon that is Graffiti. Also, he spoke of his passion for the art form that so many of his peers shared, amongst them ‘Kapi’- another well known writer, who together are the source for the constant influx of young writers looking for spray cans. They took the opportunity to show Jordi a copy of the “Game Over Magazine” (first published in 1992), asked for some caps/nozzles, and also commented that they were looking into opening a graffiti store. It was during this conversation that the imagery of the Spray Safari mural seared into his retinas years previously came flooding back to mind.
1993. First official point of sale: Game Over Shop.

The Game Over Shop in Distrito Barcelones de Gracia was the first point of sale for Montana Colors in the city and was instrumental in launching and promoting the brand. It would lay a foundation and pave the way as a new business model, the first Hip Hop store to introduce the sale of spray paint. The launch of the “low cost” concept, keeping in mind the end user, the Graffiti writer. Motivated and excited by all the possibilities, Jordi made a proposal to Felton to begin developing a product aimed specifically at the Graffiti market.

1994. The start of the adventure.
The proposal to develop a new product was ultimately rejected by Felton. But this did not stop young Jordi, who driven by his vision, decided to leave the company and established Montana Colors along with his friend and colleague Miguel Galea. The objective was simple and clear: to produce a spray can specifically designed to meet the demands of Graffiti writers, with an excellent quality and great coverage, an extensive color range, and above all, at a very affordable price.
Combining the technical knowledge of Jordi and Miguel, with the input of Moockie and Kapi, they did exactly that and produced the first Montana spray can.  Classic, a 200ml format can in 60 colors, that offered writers for the very first time in the history of Graffiti, the ability to create clean lines while enjoying a nice pressure with excellent coverage.
Fabrication began of the first units of the Classic in a rented small paint factory in Esparraguera (just outside of Barcelona). They were hand-loaded and transported into town by car by Quim, our first delivery driver who is still with us today.
1994. First MTN design.

The designed logo of Montana Colors and the Classic 200ml can. The source of inspiration: A circle that represents the world parted in three forms: One for each of the primary colors - CMY - sustained in balance as a grid on top of a infinite black - K -. The idea was to give certain prestige to a product specialized for writers, based on two essential concepts: Quality and health, and thru this change the old image and reputation of classic spray paint from hardware stores and garages.

1994. Aerosol Art festival.

It was a month later in June, 1994 when for the first time, Montana Colors was presented to the general public at one of the first Graffiti festivals in the city- “Aeorosol Art” which was organized by the Game Over Shop. 200 units of the original Classic, in the color black, started circulating through the hands of Writers who were instantly amazed at the results.


More Info

1994. Our first Ad.

The first Montana Colors advertisement came out in 1994 amongst the pages of Game Over Magazine #6. Again molds were broken with an image in which local writer ‘Abismo’ appears painting the Metro. This marked the start of our support towards independent publications.

1995. First sales abroad.

The first international sales to Europe begin in 1995, both to Edinburgh (Scotland) and  various artist groups as is the case of the Genoese AL. Meanwhile, the pioneer graffiti shop Game Over (Barcelona), relocates to Consell de Cent Street where it opens doors under the name Bunker and as a concept "hip hop store".

1996. The birth of the Hardcore

1996 was the year that saw the birth of our most emblematic can in a 400ml format. Pressured by the growing demand of local and European writers who wanted a higher pressure can that worked with a Pink DotFat Cap and the Grey Skinny Banana, research and development led to the female, higher pressure valve. It was this last capability that spawned the name when Kapi exclaimed “That’s hardcore!” after trying it for the first time.


1997. And we keep growing.

In 1997 we moved to our new fabrication plant and established our first warehouse in Vacarisses, a small town on the outskirts of Barcelona.


1997. First distributors in Europe


Holland, France, Germany and Sweden were among the first countries to start officially distributing Montana Colors products, with the clear objective of trying to meet the strong demand that in 1997, existed all over Europe.

At the same time we kept developing our marketing strategy by offering sponsorship to the nation’s major festivals, such as the case of Festimad, which now involves graffiti. 


1997. The innovation continues. The birth of the "Donut"

Sometimes the best ideas are the ones that come about by chance. This was exactly the case for Jordi Rubio, who by chance, whilst in the shower noticed the embellishments on the taps. It was at this moment that Jordi’s “light bulb” lit up. This was the moment that would bring about the “Donut” a color identifier and revolutionary concept that would forever change the aesthetics and functionality within the aerosol industry. It was a direct and effective solution to the problem that North-American Writers had, in which they had to paint their fingers and mark the top rim of the cans in order to ascertain which color was contained inside. The Donut made this problem just a part of history.

1998 …and we don't stop! We continue fabricating & We continue innovating.

We situated ourselves at the site in 1998 and the rhythm of fabrication, production and promotional campaigns increased against the never ending demand across Europe and the rest of the world.

At this point the first ideas were developed to create other formats than the Classic 250ml and Hardcore 400ml cans. So, the family of sprays grew with the ancestors of the 600ml MEGA and 750ml MAXIMO. The research and development of different caps/nozzles also began which offered the writer a wider variety of lines.


1999. First inter-continental exports.

In the final year of the 20th Century, Montana Colors makes a definitive move into the United States, Canada and Mexico and also made its way into South America via Argentina. With these first exports, we established the name as truly a global brand name. And with the fantastic reception our product received on these two continents, it offered a very promising future.

2000. Unethical campaign against Montana Colors.


We entered the market strong, and like any successful company we drew the attention of a large German multinational corporation who made an offer to acquire Montana Colors. We strongly valued our independence and naturally rejected the offer. This caused the large multinational company to respond by deciding to initiate a disloyal campaign against our company, using our own name to confuse and deceive our customers. We suffered the consequential financial losses of some disloyal clients moving over to this new ‘competition’ and had to defend our name and rights against this obvious plagiarism in multiple court cases.


To top it all, we found fraudulent copies of our Hardcore can distributed throughout some European countries and were unjustly accused of using harmful substances in our spray paint by a well-known, although  not quite independent by the nature of its actions, journal for European graffiti.


2002. The birth of Spray Planet.

Time passes, and no matter how many obstacles are imposed on us, our survival instinct and motivation for our job, makes us raise our heads and look into the future with clear vision and determination.

The ideas keep flowing such as building business models as we launch Spray Planet as a distributor for graffiti products in Spain. From here we not only offer to the customer products made by Montana Colors but also publications from independent editors of books, videos and magazines. These will be the testimony to the graffiti lifestyle we all live so intensely.

At the same, the first ideas were discussed to develop a prototype of totally different can, low pressure, matte and in a new and manageable format… Does Alien ring a bell? 



2002. The birth of the Mega and the Maximo.

We mentioned before, after roughly four years in which we had been experimenting with different size cans with different characteristics, we could in 2002 talk of the official launch of MEGA 600ml and MAXIMO 750ml. We kept on innovating with the rest of the competition lagging behind, taking notes.


2002. Birth of the Hardcore Marker.

In this same year we continued adding and launching new innovations to our products and on this occasion it was a line of markers called Hardcore which came in different sizes and color ranges.

2002. A fire destroys the factory in Vacarisses.

True to the saying, "When it rains, it pours,” a ‘freak’ static electricity accident started a huge, devastating blaze which totally destroyed our factory in Vacarisses. We lost everything, but not our hope. That will be the last thing to be lost. So we swung into survival mode and as only the strong will survive, we gritted our teeth and started again. Thanks to the dedication and determination of our workers we tried to raise-up after such a huge hit.


2003. Rise of the Phoenix.


In 2003 Montana Colors was reborn in the Sant Vicenç de Castellet plant. 

We started over,step by step, brick by brick.


2003. The first painting of the factory plant by Os Gemeos & Nina.

We are lucky to have friends like Os Gemeos and Nina who were with us during these tough and trying times.   They decided to infect us with their positive spirit by painting our new factory with a magical shield; that would protect us in the years to come. Ordem e progresso!


2003. Limited editions.

What better way to represent the works of artists of both national and international fame than their very own 400ml spray can? At Montana Colors we were the first to produce this type of collectable limited edition can. Os Gemeos (Sao Paulo, Brazil) was the first to collaborate with us in 2003. Behind them came the likes of Honet, Seen, Cope2, Shepard Fairey, Mark y Vaughn Bodé, Tilt, and Sento o Aryz with a run of 500 units by each artist, which came boxed and sealed.

A family that grows each year and leaves no one indifferent.



2003. We push our name.

In this year we have started up our public relations again to show the professional sector and everyone else that we are more alive than ever. We are present at major fashion and trade shows to not only promote our brand name but also the main reason we exist: Graffiti.

2003. Barcelona International Comic fair.

2003 was the first year  Montana participated in this international exhibition of the cartoon world in Barcelona. 

Since then we haven´t missed an edition!


2003. The birth of "The Boina" ("The Beret”).


Montana Colors came up with the idea and created the ‘boina’ as a useful element to cover and protect the valve of the Hardcore can in the absence of a cap. In this fashion the 400ml spray presented itself as a stylized and independent element without the need for other accessories such as the classic lid or cover that traditionally came with them.


2003. The birth and fabrication of Micro.

A year after restarting comes the baby of the family in our spray range, the ‘baby’ Micro 30ml.

It comes to show that against all adversities there is always reason to continue on and the future is a bright one.



2004. Alien

2004. We fabricated and produced our most “experimental” spray can, the ALIEN, with a chart of 70 colors. The high concentration of pigment, a very sophisticated low pressure valve system, and revolutionary format make the Alien a technical product designed especially for those who search for high precision with a great finish for their works. 

2004. Alien spectrum colors

As the techniques of writer’s increased, so did the demand to stay a step ahead in products which were developed specifically for Graffiti Art. The Spectrum colors - Air White, Ethereal yellow, Soul Red, Atmosphere Blue, Shadow Black and Poltergeist - were born from the Alien colour chart to explore with the use of shadows, tints, and lights, offering a semi-transparent finish. These products were the first of its type on the market.

2004. Montana Shop & Gallery.
Barcelona, the city that saw Montana Colors grow in reference to the Graffiti and Street Art scene since the start of the new millennium were the obvious reason we inaugurated, in 2004, our first official Shop & Gallery. This project model came about from the idea to be able to find in one place both the works of young talented or international writers and, at the same time, be able to find our MTN products, be it produced by ourselves or part of our vast distribution network.
Successively after this, cities such as Sâo Paulo, Argentina, Amsterdam, Lisboa, Rio de Janeiro, Sevilla, Valencia, Madrid, Montpellier amongst many others, until we get to the actual current 13 stores… for a full list click here.
2005. Montana Shop & Gallery Brussels.

Montana Shop & Gallery Brussels was opened to the public in 2005 offering a complete catalog for writers, a large selection of books and magazines, and above all, one of the most frequented galleries in the city. A must for all writers who visits the Belgium capital.



2005. Keep the Planet clean.

In 2005 Montana Colors created and developed the content for Keep the Planet Clean. This program outlines our promise to minimize our impact on the environment from our production to distribution, something we demand from our suppliers and promote to our clients.

The first step was the creation of recycling bins, which became a habitual and necessary part of all festivals and exhibitions with the aim of promoting the responsible act of depositing in them empty cans.


2006. Montana Shop & Gallery Sao Paulo.

With 20 million habitants spread over 7900km2, Sao Paulo is one of the most populated cities in the world. This megalopolis is the ecomomic motor of South American giant, Brazil, the world capital of Pixaçao and in recent years, of Brazilian Graffiti.

In the heart of the city comes our first Brazilian Montana Shop with a decorative interior that simulates the tunnels of the Paulista Metro. It is a good reference point where to find a vast range of Montana Colors products.

2006. Montana Shop & Gallery Montpellier.


Montpellier is such an attractive city and so active in Graffiti that we thought it would be an excellent idea to open a Shop & Gallery there which could represent us in the south of France with its two owners, Nico and Kristelle.

Situated in the city center, very close to the main station, the store has been operating since 2006, offering everything a writer needs while meeting the typical French standards for good style and elegance.




2006. Bread & Butter Barcelona

2007. Construmat fair in Barcelona.

In this year we participated for the first time in what is considered to be one of the most important construction industry trade shows in Europe: Construmat. Knowing the relationship between architects and Graffiti as a decorative solution we continued participating for the following three years.


2007. Montana Shop Valencia.

In the heart of the city, very close to the northern station, you find Montana Shop & Gallery Valencia. Over the years the city has become one of the Spanish capitals for Spanish writing and therefore, it was clear that there was a need for a store which covered and met the needs of local writers.



2007. The Montana Gallery in Barcelona.

Shortly after opening our official store in Barcelona, the store next door became available for lease. We saw this as a perfect opportunity with the vision of a gallery being the perfect complement to the official store.

This way we could provide a space where different exhibitions would be rotated through by young, talented local and national artists as well as some international figures.

Since our first exhibition by Os Gemeos, we have also exhibited the likes of Suso33, Moockie & Zeta, Henry Chalfant & Sharp, Loomit, San, Okuda, Won ABC, Alex Fakso, Sawe, Dran, Smole, SozyOne, Steve Harrington, Vino, Inocuo, Escif, and Aryz o Tilt amongst many others.


2007. Second painting of the factory plant by Os Gemeos & Nina.

5 years later, the magic came back to the factory plant at the hands of our friends from Sao Paulo, who returned to renew its look by adding new shapes and colors charged with simbology.

2007. Nitro 2G (400 ml) With Silver Killer technology.

Due to technical reasons, the specific formula of metallic paints is completely different to other paints. This is why on certain occasions, certain incompatibilities may occur. To combat this problem Montana Colors developed a new concept: ‘Silver Killer’. Specifically designed to enable metallic colors to be painted over without any problems. We began in 2007 with black and further on to the current range of Nitro 2G and Nitro 2G Colors.


2007. MTN Colors Russia.

2014. MTN Color Chalk. Removable paint

Removable paint ‘Color Chalk’, from the Montana Colors ‘Specialty’ line. 8 highly opaque, matte colors designed specially for temporary application.


Its formulation allows the paint to dry quickly to the touch without leaving loose pigment dust. For its removal we recommend scrubbing with a damp cloth or pressurized water, this way making for an easy cleanup. The less porous the painted surface, the easier the cleaning.

The residuals from cleaning are environmentally friendly and can be disposed of, even down drains.


Its quick and easy cleaning is much appreciated in temporary markings such as (construction, sports events, etc.), cinematographic decoration, Guerrilla marketing, or any other situation where the versatility of spray paint and an easy removal is necessary.
