Mak Ming Chan's Calligraphy Chamber

To create the Chinese calligraphy featured on the Quilted Denim Motorcyle Jacket, as well as the hang tags that come with our other jackets, we linked up with San Francisco artist Mak Ming Chan. Mak started studying calligraphy at a very early age in China and eventually moved to Hong Kong in the 70's to further his studies.

These days he has racked up quite a few accomplishments: designed a U.S. postage stamp, created work that's part of the Hong Kong Museum of Art's permanent collection, and designed artwork for the Beijing Olympics.

We recently dropped in on him when he had an open studio session and captured some photos of him while he was locked in his Chamber.
