Born in '68 George Bates grew up surfing in New Jersey and moved to NYC in '86. He's been surfing various New York breaks there ever since thanks to the technological advances in winter wetsuits, internet forecasting and the MTA. The George Bates Studio has been creating images which codify perception and ideas since '90. Images within which hopefully the eye will turn to dreaming and forget itself.
