Surfed some fun little wedges at perma crowded not-so-NewPort. The amazing weather, clear water and fun waves inspired me to share some surf related art. Although the Brazilian surf scene and Brazo surfers carry a global reputation as being ultra competitive, aggressive and wave snaking (read an interview with CJ Hobgood about Brazilian surf culture and Imperialism), their appears to be a softer side in Tom Veiga. I really love the color pallet and large curvy wave shapes. If for some reason you can read Portuguese, here is a little on the artist. Check out the site to gander at his renditions of some famous waves from around the world.
Deus estava muito inspirado quando criou o mar e projetou as ondas, tudo muito perfeito, cada onda tem uma forma, uma cor, uma caracteristica única, e tudo isso me inspirou a refletir essa beleza do mar e das ondas através do design.
