Surf art…

This above work is by David Lloyd.. Lloyd’s work tries to evoke the memories that all surfers have stored up inside.  “Deep in your head there is this place, and it’s not Huntington Pier,”   It’s more like a collective surfing unconscious.  Surfers live in longing for that moment, they relish the anticipation.  But arriving there is never as good as you picture it.  Eventually, your memory mixes up all these snapshots of the best days and they all become part of this inner place.” 
Okay Im off to Bali next month, so thats what may have inspired this.

Here is some art by Glenn Francis…

'pacific reef'

Originally from Corpus Cristi, Texas, Glenn now resides in Encinitas CA., and Costa Rica.  His dramatic paintings capture that special moment in surfing on a perfect day, or as they say in Costa Rica, “pura vida”, which translates to a pure moment in life. Through the years Glenn has worked in Galleries, shaped surfboards, and chased the perfect wave, while evolving into one of the most renowned and dynamic surf artists in the world.

Another surf artist is Peter Edington, a wonderul visionary artist who lives on the Golden Coast of Australia, and whose art is an inspiration.
Peter was one fo those lucky few who was part of the psychedelic surfer culture of Australia during the 1970’s. Hrt is beautiful, warm and uplifting. Here is an example…

Hey… if im going too ‘off-topic’ let me know… its not really pets here, but I hope you like the art!!

SO, IS this really art? well, i say it is. And of course, who determines art is not someone else, but is up to you!

No, this is a ‘series of images’ and it combines a ‘human design element’ ie the artwork of the boards, with a ‘random act of nature’ ie the shark bite….. so while you might not like it, I can still look at this series as a set of  creative images inspired/enhanced by nature!

okay, perhaps im crazy……… let me know your thoughts!!! =

a good idea would be to use these photos to then create a painting………. eg do it yourself, or get artists do do it for you, eg those at portraitxpress!
