What is a DMOTE? Depending on where you come from, the word DMOTE itself can lead to a plethora of pronunciations. But in the graffiti community, there is no confusion of what it is, or rather who! DMOTE is a globally respected Australian born artist who works and resides in New York. With a footprint that spans the globe, DMOTE has left reminders of his artistic existence on nearly every continent. Mosquito bites maybe, but his influence and visual reach has left large aesthetic scars on the streetscape of the world graffiti scene. With his strong graphical senses and his hard working ethic since the mid 80’s, DMOTE has come a long way since his humble beginnings in the suburbs of Sydney. Embracing all sides of the visual spectrum, DMOTE has managed to transcend the energy of his miss spent youth doing graffiti and expand into the fields of design, illustration, painting, curation and fine art. Unlike many before him, he has managed to keep the thread strong and tight between graffiti and the “other” forms of art he practices. The result is an uncompromisingly strong visual presence with its integrity firmly intact, both feet in the street. It is with all these points in mind that we are proud to feature DMOTE in our Montana Cans artist series can collection. His diversity and quirkiness is well placed in the chosen Montana BLACK color, “Purple Rain”.
