Original Paintings

In the ’50s John became the first person to create a large body of art relating to the Hawaii-California surf culture. Since then he has provided a steady output of original paintings that spans decades and continues to this day.

“I am working on a new series of watercolors entitled ESSENCE. It started with the painting below, and has moved spontaneously through a series of wave and surfer relationships. Water, surf, and sweeping lines—I love it!”
