Legendary Surf Artist – Rick Griffin

We are proud to announce a new showcase of the late great; Rick Griffin‘s work… Rick Griffin (1944 – 1991) is widely known in the surfing world as one of the original surf artists. His iconic poster for John Severson‘s Pacific Vibrations (shown below) and his comic strip about a surfer named "Murphy" are perhaps his more famous works. He was particularly famous as being one of the leading designers of psychedelic posters in the 1960s.

We’re grateful to Rick’s son-in-law Tod (www.rickgriffinink.com), who represents the estate and all business dealings, who offered Rick’s work to be displayed on this site. Check it out…
