Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 10, 2009
Oahu-based artist Chris Lundy (Juxtapoz cover #63) lives an existence saturated in art and surfing. Not only does it sound like a great life, but it adds the type of palpable authenticity to an artist's work that can only be achieved after years of dedication.
Immortalizing his surfing roots, Lundy captures the kinetic energy and graceful motion of surf culture in vibrant paintings he calls "meditations in and of themselves," which he hopes "serve as a glimpse into the rhythmic, radiant sanctuary that is the true home of many.”
In anticipation of his upcoming new solo exhibition Notes From the Field, which opens this Saturday, March 14, we pulled Chris out of the water to answer our questions for Back Talk. Learn more on this ocean-obsessed creator here.
