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?
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.
