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.
In the early '90s, graffiti was considered, by all of the American and European spray paint companies, to merely be an act of vandalism. It was of no interest to any of the companies, because it wasn't yet considered to be profitable. At that time, the discovery of this passionate cultural revolution was what propelled the founders of Montana Colors to lay the groundwork for the creation of the first spray paint made especially for graffiti and, in that way, fill that hole in the market.
With this beginning, the lines to follow were clear: get to know the scene and support it from the very start. Thus, the main goal was set: to produce a specific spray to meet the demands of graffiti writers; something with high quality, a wide range of colors and, above all else, a very affordable price. With the passing of the years, our motto remains the same: support graffiti and respect each other and the environment.
Our actions are what differentiates us from the rest, and one of the defining values of Montana Colors is its independent character. This value, a difficult one to maintain and accept in this globalized world which we inhabit, has been achieved by our dedication to producing a unique and original product, manufactured following a traditional process which maintains the highest guarantee in the quality of its finish.
This fact has made Montana Colors, in its 20 years of independence, the leading international brand for spray paint made especially for graffiti. We don't simply dedicate ourselves to the market generated by graffiti, we also feel part of the movement; we grew with it. We are not a multinational company, nor are we machines; we are people with a great passion for what we do each day.
