MONTANA spray paint is probably the world’s most known specialized graffiti spray paint. Since the year 2000 MONTANA supports a group of artists which they call the MONTANA WRITER TEAM. All members – SMASH137, KENT, CANTWO, DASH and ATOM – are internationally well-known and respected artists in the graffiti scene; every one of them has been painting for at least 16 years.
Since the foundation of the team, several times a year MONTANA organizes wall productions for these artists all over the world to do some PR for their spray paint products. Meanwhile the team has been painting together in Germany, Italy, Finland, Russia, Poland, the USA, Spain, Switzerland and Denmark. For the future there are plans to go to Asia, South America and Australia.
RUEDIONE, one of the directors of MONTANA and photographer for several years, has been accompanying organizing this team from the first day on. And always in his luggage: his camera. He documents each single action of the team. His close contact to the members enables him to show their works and them-selves from a very special point of view.
Thus the reader of the book MONTANA WRITER TEAM can experience the graffiti actions of the team and gain an insight behind the curtain of each artist. How does CANTWO live? Where does SMASH137 work? Questions that won’t get answered to a 100% but you will have the chance to get certain impressions on who they are and what they do. Divided into two parts the book starts off with the artists’ portraits, each on seven double spreads, one of those seven designed by the artist himself. The following part is full of short stories of each production the team did and impressive photographs from RUEDIONE.
