Congratulations to Christopher Martin, Van's "Off the Wall" featured artist of the week! In honor of Black History Month, Van's has "partnered with four Black artists to uplift their creative work and donated to Black Art Futures Fund. You can design your own Customs with exclusive artwork from Chris Martin, Rewina Beshue, Sydney G. James, and Tony Whlgn." They are "donating $40,000 USD to Black Art Futures Fund whose focus is on amplifying and strengthening the future of Black art. This donation will fund granting efforts to small and community-based Black arts organizations across the country."
Van's goes on to say, "Black voices, artists, thinkers and trailblazers shape every generation. This Black History Month, we celebrate Black artists who are pushing the culture forward today through their voices and creativity, paving the way for generations to follow." Head to the Van's website to read a short interview with Christopher, and to order your own custom Van's items with Christopher's artwork!
