Monty Cantsin

Monty Cantsin is a multiple-use name that anyone can adopt, but has close ties to Neoism. Monty Cantsin was originally conceived as an "open pop star." In a philosophy anticipating that of free software and open source, anyone should perform in his name and thus contribute to and participate in his fame and achievements.
In reality the name is most commonly linked nowadays to the activities of artist and musician Istvan Kantor.

It was also used by hundreds of artists and musicians, among them A086, Al Ackerman, Andy Stenhouse, Arthur Berkhoff, Basic Essentials, Black Hand Gang, Boris Wanowitch, Chico Louis, Dave Porter (2), David Zack, Emilio Morandi, First Aid Brigade, G. Achille Cavellini, GX Jupitter-Larsen, Ginny Lloyd, Glassmadness, Gordon W. Porter, Graf Haufen, Hapunkt Fix, Istvan Kantor, Mark Bloch, Niels Lomholt, The People of Pontenossa, Pete Horobin, Robin Crozier, Rod Summers, Stewart Home, tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE, Tristan Renaud, Vittore Baroni.
