New York-based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz has created a riff on the iconic and ubiquitous “I Heart NY” design by Milton Glaser in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Submerging the logo in blue dip-dye on a T-shirt for Grey Area, Errazuriz, whose studio was paralyzed by city power outages in the violent storm, was inspired after noticing the devastatingly high flood line on the walls of the Chelsea art galleries. The artist created another shirt that depicts the NYC subway map dip-dyed in black at an angle to artistically and accurately show the city’s post-disaster power divide.
One hundred percent of the T-shirts’ profits will benefit relief efforts in the area, so get yours now. Despite the overwhelming response in the shirt’s short life to date, they’re still taking orders online at Grey Area for $40.
