Through Montana Colors and their exhibition space in Barcelona, Montana Gallery, the young talent Enric Sant, member of the Catalan art collective Mixed Media, was presented during the last International Art Fair Swab.
In a environment surrounded by gallery-stands which presented works for exhibition and sale, the audience saw with surprise a quite dynamic action where they could see the creative process of a piece of art during the four days of the event. This way the visitors were able to get a close look at the doubtless talent and artistic skills of Enric, and his easy way of handling the sprays, how he mixed the colors of the Alien, Hardcore and 94 ranges, and his abilities with brushes to give shades as a last touch, to finally present his finished artwork.
Another step towards showing the general audience that it doesn’t matter where you came from, where you have studied, or because you can take advantage of a acknowledgement on the “market”, as long as what you are doing is flowing of creativity and talent.
Once again we have to say thank you to Edgar Lledó for following up on this work with his exceptional audiovisual work which delights us, and, not to forget, thank you Laura Llopart for bringing us this exclusive soundtrack which along side with the images helps to describe the moment and the work of the artist in a perfect way.

Many years has passed by since Barcelona’s writer Rocky discovered Brazil for the first time. Capoeira which is one of his greatest passions in life, was the main reason for him to convert this enormous country into his second home. As he puts it himself, “wherever I go I bring with me who I am, and I am graffiti”, and Brazil has also been the second playground to develop him as a graffiti writer in his life.
‘Contos de Brasil’ is a short documentary which collects Rocky‘s experiences in the main cities of the country during the years he has been going there. From the layups to the favelas, this writer from Barcelona has developed a european graffiti tradition in a society completely different from his natural habitat and brings us some really interesting adventures which makes us witness the most humane side of graffiti culture: An unforgettable experience where we also get to meet other writers like Biz, Moar, Vista, Raros and Beam.

The second episode of ‘ Hardcore On Tour‘ is finally here. In the first episode we came along with Hinch and his friends on a trip through different cities in Europe to finally land in Hamburg where the climate started to get more and more grim. Now our main characters continues their journey towards the north: Copenhagen, Malmö and Stockholm. Despite the terrible cold around them, which is one of the main handicaps for painting in these countries, these fearless writers manages to leave their traces on the nordic train models, leaving us with panels in the Swedish metro as icing on the cake.

MTN – Montana Colors is proud to present a very special new product, The Pandora.
From the outside, your first impression is that this is just a regular Hardcore spray can, but on the inside, instead of paint it has a hidden compartment, to hide those things that are best left hidden from view.
Made in Europe from an authentic spraycan, The Pandora not only deceives you due to its appearance, but also because it makes the classic sound of a rattling can and weighs the same as a regular can. No matter how you handle The Pandora, it is absolutely impossible to notice its true nature. Go get yours now!
-Realistic appearance and weight
-Original spraycan components

Even if the graffiti scene in Buenos Aires is fairly young it has developed in a excitingly fast rhythm over the last years. The follow the western traditions by bombing streets and metros, but, with a quite different attitude.
They same way that European graffiti in its first years followed in the footsteps of the United States, Buenos Aires also has took the “old country” as an example to follow.
Who better than Porno14, one of the city’s most prolific bombers, to show us the context of the Buenos Aires graffiti scene from his point of view. And since we are with him we start out with getting to know him a bit better before we start this truly interesting travel though the history of Argentinian graffiti.
Follow the interview here.
