Montana Colors

  1. In May 2015, the urban artist, Kwets, launched the MURAL’H project promoted by the Contorno Urbano association, with an enormous intervention that transformed the Avenida Isabel la Catatólica de l'Hospitalet del Llobregat tunnel. It took 12 weeks to cover the 1000 m2 grey wall, used 1250 cans of MTN 94, and was sponsored by Mémora group and Hune, in addition to Montana Colors.
    The gigantic piece’s content represents the migratory birds that fly over L'Hospitalet every year, and serves as a metaphor that refers to the thousands of immigrants the city hosts and is capable of integrating each year. Furthermore, the tunnel is one of the few routes that connects the north and south of the municipality, and is used by hundreds of people daily.
    A project with this much social importance deserves a high stature follow up, so Montana Colors had to contact Edgar Lledó to direct this documentary that explains the context, the process, and results of a large part of the work that was put into this monumental intervention. The first MURAL’H initiative; a project based on social integration and urban planning that’s attempting to span across all the neighborhoods of L'Hospitalet in order to transform the city.

    En mayo del 2015 el artista urbano Kwets inauguraba el proyecto MURAL'H, promovido por la asociación Contorno Urbano, con la enorme intervención que transformaba el túnel de la Avenida Isabel la Catatólica de l'Hospitalet del Llobregat. Un trabajo que necesitó 12 semanas para cubrir 1000 m2 de pared gris utilizando 1250 latas de MTN 94 y que ha contado también con el patrocinio del grupo Mémora y la colaboración de Hune además de Montana Colors.
    El contenido de la gigantesca pieza representa las aves migratorias que cada año pasan por L'Hospitalet, sirviendo de metáfora que refiere a las miles de personas inmigrantes que cada año acoge la ciudad y la capacidad de integración que se da en esta. Además, el túnel es uno de los pocos pasos que conecta el norte y el sur del municipio, siendo utilizado por cientos de personas a diario.
    Un proyecto de tanta importancia social como este merecía un seguimiento a la altura, por lo que Montana Colors ha contado con Edgar Lledó para dirigir este documental que explica el contexto, el proceso y los resultados de gran parte del trabajo que ha habido detrás de esta monumental intervención. La primera acción de MURAL'H, un proyecto que pretender abarcar todos los barrios del L'Hospitalet para transformar la ciudad partiendo de la integración social y el urbanismo.

  3. Does SoCool ring a bell? Surely it does, as it’s one of the names that’s ringing bells on the Italian scene lately. Apparently, the writer has got fairly comfortable with using the the 500ml format cans that MTN Colors 2G has to offer. There’s more paint than in the standard 400ml size, and although it’s designed for optimum performance over metallic colors, it works really well on colors as well. See for yourself int this video he sent us.

    ¿Os suena SoCool? Seguro que sí, es uno de los nombres de la escena italiana que más está sonando últimamente. Por lo visto este escritor se ha acomodado bastante bien al formato de 500ml que ofrecen los MTN 2G Colors. Más pintura que el formato estándar de 400ml que, aunque esté diseñado para un rendimiento óptimo sobre colores metalizados, funciona de maravilla sobre colores. Podéis comprobarlo con este vídeo que nos ha hecho llegar.

  4. The phrase, “those were the days” ceases to make sense when that same attitude from back in the day still remains. And we’re not just taking about El Xupet Negre, pioneer of icon graffiti who after being active for 26 years, still decorates walls with that emblematic pacifier. We’re also referring to Kamil, who belongs to the new generation of Barcelona graffiti artists and is a tireless creator who affirms Barcelona’s identity with style that nods its head to the vanguard of the 1992 Olympics.

    The two artists joined forces on this wall in the Poble Nou neighbourhood, representing their particular view on the city of Barcelona with a fun mural full of symbolism, fantasy, and freshness.

    La frase “tiempos pasados siempre fueron mejores” deja de cobrar sentido en el momento en que la actitud se conserva. Y no hablamos sólo de El Xupet Negre, pionero del graffiti de iconos que tras 26 años de actividad sigue decorando paredes con el emblemático chupete. Hablamos también de Kamil, perteneciente a las nuevas generaciones de artistas de graffiti barceloneses, un creador incansable que reivindica la identidad de Barcelona con un estilo que hace guiños a la vanguardia de las olimpiadas del 92.

    Los dos artistas se dan la mano en esta pared en el barrio de Poble Nou representando su particular visión de la ciudad de Barcelona con un divertido mural lleno de simbología, fantasía y frescura.

  5. Kiler is back with another collabo with the streetwear brand Grimey, and the video we will see from it is filmed in Germany's capital city. The Berlin wall is the surface for the occasion and his great styles. They also hung a canvas on the wall before painting it so at least a piece of the piece will be saved for the future...

    -

    Kiler vuelve a colaborar con la marca de ropa Grimey en un video localizado de nuevo en la capital alemana. En esta ocasión el muro de Berlín es la superficie sobre la que este escritor deja su estilo. En ella, un lienzo previamente colocado sirve para inmortalizar parte de la pieza que queda en el Hall of Fame.

    "Lucid Dreaming" is an act of rebellion. The dreamer gains control over his actions and thoughts. The subconscious becomes conscious, dreams become a memory.

    The Lucid Dreamer is like a magician, imposing willpower and constantly struggling with himself, to master his skills and gain full control of the dream, thus becoming the ruler of the maze instead of a single puppet in the paradox black hole of perception.
