With a refreshing, beguiling approach to surf art, British contemporary artist Toby Ray creates heart-stirring works of art which depict the seascapes of his dreams. Inspired by his beloved North Cornwall coast, lifelong surfer Toby uses an inventive mix of acrylics, old ordnance survey maps, wood and rare maritime shipping charts to bring about something quite beyond expectation. Toby skilfully bridges the gap between the often dissonant worlds of surf culture and fine art. His paintings capture the primal power and hypnotic nature of the ocean and breathe new life into a genre too readily associated with brash driftwood pictures. You can almost hear the crashing of the waves and feel the salty air prickle your skin when gazing into one of Toby’s mellow, innovatively composed Cornish seascapes. Discover Toby’s unique Cornish seascapes and get lost in the ocean…
