hurricane sandy relief t shirt I still love NY by sebastian errazuriz

‘I still love new york’ by sebastian errazuriz

like most work places throughout new york, chilean artist sebastian errazuriz’s studio stalled after hurricane sandy, waiting for supplies that got stuck on their way to the city. unable to work and tired of watching the horrible storm unfold on the news, errazuriz decided to collaborate with grey area to help raise much-needed relief funds for victims of the natural disaster.

influenced by the water line marked on the walls of the flooded galleries in the chelsea art district, the artist has created a series of hand-made T-shirts using a 1970’s dip dying style. the tourist classics: ‘I love NY’ and MTA subway T-shirts are now being transformed into a flooded new york city divided between those with electricity and those left in the dark.

the T-shirts can be purchased here for 40 USD, with all proceeds going to hurricane sandy relief programs.
