When it comes to styling a space with an authentic California vibe, nothing quite ties in a room than some local artwork by none other than your favourite surf artists. Today I've put together a list of some of the best surf art I've sold to help get your interior design juices flowing. This list isn't just for surfers. It's also great for those looking to level up their own spaces. If you're interested in my paintings and photography, the products in this list are a great starting point if you're looking for some holiday gift inspiration too.
When I start creating and spending time in the studio, I tap into what I feel about the surf, ocean, waves and beach. Surfing was a massive part of my life until I began to pursue my career as a photographer and artist. When I first started surfing, I never dreamed it would turn into such a creative career where I've been able to work with publications like Surfer Magazine, other iconic surf artists, legendary surfers and more. So let's dive into some of my favourite types of surfing art to liven up a space below.
I've got to start with the staple for anyone looking to theme their space, and that's best done by acquiring some groovy surfboard art. Whether it's a painting, print or poster you can bring in that carefree surfer vibe while still making a statement that immediately draws the eyes. My prints come in a variety of colors, giving you plenty of options when it comes to picking out the best style for your space.
My surfboard wall art and surfing wall art prints are perfect for any beach-inspired space. Surfboards are a simple and iconic symbol that immediately enhances a room with a more rustic and bohemian vibe, no matter how modern the architecture is. Not only do they offer a bright burst of color, but these prints also feature vibrant inks that are printed using a woodblock technique. Feel free to browse some of the prints of boards and more abstract designs on my site.
Film Photography Prints
Surf art isn't limited to just surfboard art; there are a few more categories of work that can bring that groovy lifestyle to your space. I also have a great selection of surfing photographs, with my favorites being taken during the golden hour. These are perfect for anyone looking for some unique surf photography and can even be framed to make them extra special. If you're into photography, my surf prints are some of the best surf photos around. My signature shots capture the beauty and allure of watching the battle between the waves and the surfer. The picture will often highlight how invigorating this alluring sport can be - perfect for anyone looking to zing up their walls.
Definitely consider checking out some of the pieces from my Surreal Surf art collection that feature kaleidoscopic image manipulations that remind you of what it feels like to be in amongst the ocean break. A lot of surf artists produce lots of the same type of photography, filled with surfers and waves, but I like to relate the calm imagery surrounding surfing in my art with this series by creating the visual excitement through selective manipulations.
Whether you decide to use mine or another surf artist's pictures, these images are an awesome style of photography prints that will instantly create that nostalgic surf vibe due to the grainy nature of film photography. My film photography captures the beauty of those big swells and glassy surf days in a way no digital image can match.
Fashionable Statement Pieces
Finally, something a little different but still definitely worth considering surf art is making your very own clothing a piece of wearable art. I myself love surf culture and fashion and previously worked for Surfer Magazine and often worked on collaborations with some of the world's favorite fashion brands like UNIQLO and Converse. One issue that is close to my heart is the environmental impact of the thousands of clothes that are wasted in the fast fashion lifestyle and their impact on our environment. So another pursuit of mine has been to sell repurposed vintage clothing that features some of my signature prints.
It's a simple yet effective way to show off your style and can be as fun or minimalistic as you'd like. All you have to do is send in either an upcycled, favourite or old shirt or jacket, and I can turn it into one of my classic prints for you! The best part about these is when you aren't wearing them, you can hang them up on display as art for all your friends to marvel at.
So there you have it, some of the best surf art I offer - perfect for any space looking for a chilled out, authentic California vibe. Whether you're shopping for yourself or someone else, this should give you all the inspiration you need to add some beachy surfer vibes to your space.
