About the artwork Pico de Matinhos - Brazil (surf spots series)
This is the first of my surf spot series. It took me weeks of sketching and figurative drawings until I was finally happy with the ultimate representation for the waves using almost abstract geometric shapes. The artwork also represents a place where I used to surf when growing up, one of the most perfect waves in South America, a place I'm very nostalgic about.
About the artist Andre Brik
Andre Brik was born in Curitiba, Brazil in 1972. Architect, illustrator, and art director, he also studied typography and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and at Parsons School of Design in New York.
In his works, you can find some of the 1920’s Plakatstil graphic style and polish posters with their clean lines and flat contrasting background colors, their visual puns and wit, and subtle irony. There is also nonsense, humor, counterculture, dada, surrealism, and punk rock. The ideas are born from the observation of the elements of everyday objects. Then the artist begins a long process of sketching to deconstruct and recombine shapes, colors, and meanings. Finally, a careful selection of outcoming ideas is chosen to be digitally developed, painted, and finished as a graphic art illustration.
