CANLOVE is a graffiti recycling program that collects discarded spray paint cans and turns them into works of art.
The 1500 Project was made possible by MTN colors and their donation of 1500 white unusable spray paint cans.
These cans will be turned into white canvases and given to different street artists to paint on. The collaborations will be shown at CANLOVE's upcoming summer show at White Walls / 941 Geary in San Francisco on June 16th, 2012.
Big thanks to Mikey, RJ, Alex, Stash, Apex, Crayone, & Rob and Shawn who all helped make this project possible.

On a sunny day in September Greg "Craola" Simkins, the famed artist and LA graffiti writer, made his way to Hope Gallery in New Haven, Connecticut. Armed with an arsenal of Montana Cans, Greg and artist Adrian Dominic (SERK) teamed up and spent most of the day brightening up the main wall of the prestigious tattoo gallery.
