MTN Colors Visits Shepard Fairey

Montana Colors dropped by Shepard Fairey’s studio to get some insight on his artistic process and admiration for the company’s colorways. While he didn’t give any cap demos, or technique tutorials, the artist spoke on his many years of using the paint brand, the particular variety of colors MTN has, and why he won’t go bombing with anything else. “For the street, it was always the stuff that dried the fastest, didn’t drip, and was durable,” explains Fairey.

To cap things off, the wooden boxed product of Montana Colors and Obey’s collaboration make a cameo, in all their 500-piece-per-color, limited edition custom can design glory. Being derived from one of his book covers, he feels the look of the spray collection is a good visual summation of his work.
