As part of our Holiday 2017 collection, we collaborated with Jeremiah on the Elephant Sage Hoodie, which is lined with art made exclusively for Silver Lining and references his series of paintings depicting disenfranchised circus elephants. Jeremiah's art explores themes of nature and coexistence through various stylistic approaches from abstraction to realism. Jeremiah began as a custom surfboard shaper and maintains his ties to surf and skate culture through his studio in Santa Cruz, CA.
Ben Seamons created the lining of our Mystic Blue Hoodie, part of our 2017 holiday collection. Ben received a MFA in Painting from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and studied painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Ben passed away unexpectedly in 2016, and we are honored that this collaboration can contribute to his artistic legacy, both as a talented painter and a champion of the arts. 10% of sales of the Mystic Hoodie go to the Ben Seamons Scholarship Fund at the Ox-Bow School of Art.
