This mixed media artwork is a reproduction of Southern California artist Matthew Allen's surf art. Created using film photography, watercolors and pencil this piece was originally created for an art show at Sawyer in Santa Cruz. A former Surfer Magazine Art Director Matthew is also the co-creator of the now retired boutique surf brand The Ryde. Much of his fine art and photography revolves around beach and surf culture. Matthew spends his days shooting photos and making art as well as creating illustrations for clients such as UNIQLO, Ford Motor Company, Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Ron Herman, Champion, Vans, Bon Appetit, Food and Wine, and the Anaheim Ducks. Most of his other waking hours are spent surfing and making music.
This giclee fine art print is printed using archival inks on acid free, bright white, 100% cotton rag paper and stamped with gold ink.
