MTN WATER BASED STUDIO WORKS X JONONE

This article was posted by Los Montana 1 week, 10 hours, 34 minutes ago.

MTN WATER BASED STUDIO WORKS X JONONE from Montana Colors on Vimeo.

We continue to follow the line of french artists when we continue our series MTN Water Based Studio Works, and this time we present a true celebrity of graffiti art: Jonone. His characteristic style of calligraphy has always been a important street aesthetic related to tagging.

After years of active painting many of the old school writers has come to be reluctant towards the use of aerosols in their works thanks to their bad experiences of getting exposed to highly toxic fumes from the industrial aerosol brands which haunted the market before the specialized paints of today came along.

Getting your hands on a product like MTN Water Based, a aerosol which can be used indoors without the inconveniences of traditional sprays, might be a huge advantage for this artist. In the same way as twenty years ago, Montana Colors has once again became pioneers through the release of a product such as this one.

OZ REST IN PEACE

This article was posted by Bates 1 week, 2 days, 9 hours, 31 minutes ago.

Walter Josef Fischer—known here in Hamburg, Germany, as OZ—was a fucking legend, even if most people could never pick him out of a crowd. Aged and slow with a worn, creased face and a hunch, he walked unseen with me through Hamburg as he painted walls and swore at trains. And yet, with his spray can, he’d changed the face of this city.
Up until his death last Thursday, the 64-year-old left his tag—a simple smiley face—hundreds of thousands times on local walls, sidewalks, roofs and lampposts.
Vocativ got a last glimpse into the world of Germany’s legendary, inscrutable OZ before his death last Thursday
