Family is Chazz Elliott's second limited edition print.
The design is in the shape of a paddle. Within the design, we see ocean waves and orcas from the tip of the blade to the heel of the handle.
Within Chazz's culture paddling is referred to as pulling, because "you are pulling yourself forward with the paddle in the water" It's a team effort to propel yourself forward. The entire crew has the same goal and everyone does their part. To the artist, this is like a family coming together and sharing a purpose.
Chazz says, "I would like to dedicate this design to acknowledge the relations we call family". This print is available in black or green. This limited edition silk screen print titled "SWELOKE" by Chazz Elliott was hand produced by the screen printing process. It is the only limited edition printing of this design. The artist has inspected and signed each copy in the edition. The printer has destroyed all trial copies and obliterated the printing stencils.
