Swoon-Walki-Print-Konbit-Shelter-Project-Upper-Playground

Swoon has just released the new Walki Print, with 100% of the proceeds from the sales going towards support of The Konbit Shelter Project that she has worked on in Haiti for much of 2010. The Konbit Shelter Project is a group of artists, engineers, architects and builders creating homes and infrastructure in post-earthquake Haiti.

This past summer, Swoon and the Konbit Shelter Project team traveled to the village of Bigones in Haiti, to help create and teach locals to build dome-style structures with super-adobe techniques of earth bag architecture, creating sustainable, inexpensive and dependable housing for the people of Haiti.

The print is based on a boy in the village of Bigones, named Walki, whom Swoon and team met this past summer. It is a three-layer screenprint on handmade Indian jute paper measuring 13" x 21," and is limited as an edition of 300.

Like mentioned above, all proceeds from the print will go to the Konbit Shelter Project.
