Art For Japan
Last week as one of the worst recorded earthquakes ever and ensuing tsunamis tore into the heart of Japan we sat and watched. There was nothing we could do but watch and listen.
As members of the a global action sports community, Brrrent Sandor of Spy Optics and photographer Casey Bevington have been lucky enough to build friendships that have taken them around the world. Japan, especially is very important – Japananese design and culture have influenced their art and design aesthetic since they can remember. Countless toys and collectables litter their homes. As important as Japan is for influence it is even more important as it houses friends they have met along our journeys. Its not until we saw the devastation through our friends experiences did we fully comprehend the magnitude of the aftermath of this quake and the spirit of the Japanese.
“We wanted to help, so Casey and I created 2 limited edition prints that we feel embody the spirit of recovery. Extending open arms to help heal not only the land itself, but a nation of people, a circle of friends and family. Each prints measures 18×24", hand printed with a touch of hand painting so each one is unique. Because we like them best as a set, we are throwing in a free mini print with each twin print set ordered. All proceeds from this project go to the Japanese Red Cross Society to aid in the healing.” -Brent sandor
