Chilean born, New York based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz’s studio was paralyzed after the hurricane. Unable to work and tired of watching the horrible disaster unfold on the news, Errazuriz decided to design something to help raise much-needed relief funds. This idea occurred to him after seeing the water line marked on the walls of the flooded galleries in New York’s Chelsea art district. Sebastian Errazuriz designed two clever t-shirts in response to the hurricane and blackout and partnered with Grey Area to make them available for sale with 100% of the profit going to Hurricane Sandy relief programs.
From Grey Area:
All of us at Grey Area are deeply saddened by the toll the hurricane has taken on our town and neighbors, and we’re eager to do what we can to help those in need of assistance. We believe in using creativity for good and so does Sebastian Errazuriz, who has designed two t-shirts to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Errazuriz created “I Still Love NY” and “Manhattan Blackout” by hand dip-dying the tourist classic “I Love NY” and “MTA Subway” t-shirts. Marking the recent flood-lines and black-out zones, they illustrate our vulnerability and urge us to have more concern for our city and its residents.
