North County San Diego’s UNIV (http://univbrand.com), along with Juxtapoz Magazine and Chandran Gallery have curated and organized a group of 19 contemporary artists to create custom artwork on UNIV surfcraft to be auctioned off for the Waves For Water organization.
The project began during Art Basel in Miami where a mobile UNIV Work Shop was set up and boards were shaped and painted on-site. All proceeds benefit Waves For Water’s efforts in the Philippines, where they’re mobilizing an urgent clean water disaster relief initiative in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan. The artists included in the project are: Geoff McFetridge, Richard Colman, Jeremy Fish, Lucy McLauchlan, Tim Biskup, Cleon Peterson, Monica Canilao, Andrew Schoultz, Swampy, Tahiti Pehrson, Ty Williams, Jason Jagel, Travis Millard, Mel Kadel, CR Stecyk III, Retna, Jared Swilley, Mike DiNicola, Ale Jordao. A special one-night exhibition will be hosted on Saturday March, 29th at T.F.R. Gallery in Leucadia (north of San Diego) to celebrate the creation of the surfboards. The auction is live on Paddle 8 site from March 15-31st.
