In less than 3 weeks, the country of Nepal has experienced two major earthquakes, which destroyed many homes and killed a significant number of people. In an effort to help with this devastating situation, artist Thomas Yang created a special art print for his store 100copies, which is where he combines his love of both art and cycling. For the creative director's Nepal-inspired print, the compassionate artist designed a man riding a bike with his red cape blowing freely in the wind. The cape itself takes on the shape of Nepal in the spectacular “Ride On, Nepal” piece, encouraging the overwhelmed country to be strong during this difficult time. Most importantly, all proceeds gained from this empowering work of art will be donated to the Red Cross Nepal Earthquake Relief fund.
In under one week, the print remarkably sold out. Since only 100 copies of the $60 print were produced, this means that a total of $6000 was raised for this amazing cause. Not only has Yang combined one-of-a-kind art with cycling, he has also used his artistic abilities to promote an important worthwhile cause.
