18 Oct MAKING WAVES Retrospective Art Exhibit and Book Release Event with Drew Brophy in San Clemente, CA
Included are the artist’s most iconic paintings on both canvas and surfboards —among them Pure Joy (2001), Sunrise (2006), and celebrated surfboard triptychs from the 1990’s.
Also exhibited will be Brophy’s art on skateboards, wakeboards and apparel, and the accompanying paintings that were used to design them.
Brophy’s career as an illustrator and painter comes full circle in this exhibition, showing his progression as an artist from a young teen to the present day.
This unique exhibit traveled across the country from its original host, Myrtle Beach Art Museum, to San Clemente, California. It includes over 50 original paintings and artworks, including some of Brophy’s most iconic pieces that were loaned by collectors for this exhibit.
The exhibit begins with some of Drew’s earliest sketches and paintings and continues through his surfboard painting explosion in the 1990s to his most recent “sacred geometry” body of work inspired by the mathematic and physic discoveries of ancient cultures.
Along with the exhibit, Drew Brophy is releasing his new book titled PAINTING SURFBOARDS AND CHASING WAVES.
Copies of the book and artwork will be available for purchase and all will be signed by Drew himself. (If you cannot attend, you can order the book from Amazon HERE.)
