Artist — Santa Cruz, Portugal
The ocean is a place where I constantly seek inspiration, fun, and energy. I clearly remember that unusual morning, years ago. I found myself looking at a picture frame and imagining a wave curling out of it, and that was the exact moment when the search for the perfect wave begun. With a limited array of artistic skills, from scratch, I had to figure out the way to incarnate my idea. The process flowed naturally, though — it came as a relief following an extreme obsession with perfect waves, tirelessly voyaging across my mind. In this project, I aim to create hypnotizing barrels, long walls and churning breaks through simple lines, crystalline colours and minimal design, where nothing distracts you from the wave itself, thus allowing your imagination to surf. Every wave is 100% handmade and, therefore, unique.
