Surf Artist – Juan Flores

Check out the latest surf artist on COTW – Juan Flores"I paint the view as seen by a surfer floating on the line-up and waiting for the next wave. When painting a scene from the ocean vantage point I try to capture the feeling from the line-up, taking in the peace and beauty of the moment, and make it permanent. I feel that the surfer’s view, looking back toward the shore, on the edge between land and ocean, is a unique perspective. In my paintings I aim to recreate the feeling of distance from the shore (from everyday life?) and the dance of sky and shore reflections on the water which is always changing with the infinity of ocean moods."
