We’re pleased to announce our newest SHAOLIN JAZZ design: “Influences.” “Influences” is a series that takes stylistic cues from pop art and graffiti and fuses them with SHAOLIN JAZZ’s more specific cultural influences of hip-hop, jazz, and martial arts. Our goal with each design, starting with “Influences 1.0,” is to tell a story that pays homage to our creative make-up, provide, if you look closely, a visual history lesson, and give insight into SHAOLIN JAZZ’s cultural DNA.
