– Limited Release Graphics Featuring the Man, the Myth, the Legend: Art Chantry

Seattle, WA (October 15, 2009) Ride Snowboards releases the second of three Artist Series boards, the DH 2.2, featuring artwork from world-renowned artist Art Chantry. Raised in Tacoma, Washington, Art worked in Seattle for nearly three decades and produced a body of work that rivals some of the best graphic design in the world. With a slew of design awards under his belt, his work has made a global impression and has been exhibited by some of the most prestigious museums and galleries: the Louvre, The Smithsonian, and even the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! With strong roots that took hold in the Seattle underground music scene in the early 1990s, Chantry carved out a style all his own that extended through work with the local alternative newsweekly, The Rocket, and then extended to the fledgling record label, Sub Pop. Art’s unorthodox style and monumental achievements have made him a legend in the world of design.

Today Art’s hard-edge scrappy look can be seen everywhere from punk rock record covers to corporate annual reports and now on snowboards. Ride is proud to partner with a fellow Northwest native on the second in a series of three limited DH2 boards. Click here to check out Art’s video and bio page.
