We recently had some international guests swing past MTN Australia's HQ and boy, were we lucky. The offer to have something painted for us was an offer we simply could not refuse.

It was painted by none other than the Korean artist based in Seoul; Royal Dog

Royal Dog became instereted in the graf scene when he was only 10 years old and it was in April 2015, that a big exhibition was held to celebrate his 10th year painting anniversary. 

Royal Dog says: 

"I'm from Seoul Korea, which is the worst place for writers (lol). I started graffiti 10 years ago and started painting 13 years ago. 

I always keep tell myself that I'm painting for God. The name I go by; Royal Dog, actually means Loyal dog of God. The R and L sound the same in the Korean language, so i chose to be called Royal Dog. (Tongue in Cheek)

It was an honor to paint at the shop and I really enjoyed it. I wish I could do better one, hopefully next time."


We gave this artist free reign to paint whatever he wanted and were ultra stoked when The God aka Rakim, easily one of if not the best emcees on the planet, was thrown on the table as an option. The decision being made quite easily, Royal Dog quickly set out to work and smashed it out in record time.


Check out this real short video and some images from Royal Dog's visit to Montana Colors Australia. Mad props to Royal Dog and Rakim.
