At Oakley, we see the world through a kaleidoscope of era-defining design and groundbreaking innovation.

Through this lens, we sought to fuse the connectivity point between artistic expression and technological superiority.

The result? Artist Series. A collaboration with world renown master artists featuring stylistic alterations to existing Oakley sunglasses.

First up: the ART CHANTRY LIMITED EDITION HIJINX now available online in limited quantities.

Art Chantry pioneered the visual elements of Seattle’s Grunge Movement. His epic album covers for bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden fueled the creative beast that influenced an entire era of music. The hype engine surrounding Art’s unorthodox style spiraled into the surf, skate and snow communities, shaping the culture of many Southern California-based companies.

With work published in hundreds of books and magazines and a laundry list of accolades, a phrase like “award-winning artist” does little justice to Art’s resumé.

Simply stated, we’ve been inspired.
