surf paintings

It could be said that surfing itself is the purest form of surf art. The rider draws his own lines on a liquid medium, the only limitations the wave itself, every line drawn according to an inner aesthetic shaped by experience, influences, and, not the least, temperament. Surf artists dating back to that first Hawaiian sketching a perfect wave in the sand through John Severson and the rise of modern surf art have tapped the same sources to reinterpret waves and the waveriding experience with one important addition: idealization. Where the surf photographer captures the perfect moment that is, the surf artist often creates the perfect moment that could be. These artists are surfers themselves, drawing from their time in the water to dream in oil, acrylic, and watercolor.
