We've launched three exclusive designs, as well as two new models, as part of our new Artist Series collection. The collaboration was done to create a unique, limited edition collection with 100% of the profits going directly to the artists.
The collection was curated in support of artists impacted by COVID-19 and features limited edition designs for Maya 3.0, Chakra Child, Chakra Youth and the new Saha Child and Maya Full Face Child, the Maya you know and love that features a removable chin bar and our proprietary QuadCore Low Density Layer that reduces rotation impact forces up to 25% and low-g linear forces up to 30%.
“Our goal with this collection was to provide support for artists that have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As independent artists, what they create is their primary source of income and that became uncertain when COVID-19 came into our lives. We’re excited to lend support with the sales of our Artist Series going directly to the two artists we’ve collaborated with,” says Brad Waldron of Kali Protectives.
Meet the Artists
Fueled by coffee, muffins, and black licorice, Cori Dantini searches for inspiration in hopes of creating images that contain layers of meaning.
After earning a BFA in Painting from Washington State University and spending a few decades fiddling with brushes, pencils, markers, and most recently, her computer mouse, she has discovered an organic process of layers and language. Cori never begins a project with a message in mind. Rather, her materials and methods are what drive the meaning. It is this mysterious, reciprocal quality of art that intrigues her and makes her think of her works as visual poems.
Born in eastern Germany, Andrea was convinced she would never discover the world’s beauty beyond the bounds of her home. She dreamed of visiting exotic places full of nature, sun, and dschungel.
As time passed, doors started to open to reveal endless opportunities. Andrea studied design in Dresden where she practiced shaping, coloring, and creating. Over the years, Andrea enjoyed travelling and finding inspiration in new cultures she encountered.
