Sorry for going all "artsy" on you, but when you really think about it, surfers are artists. You could say the board is their paintbrush, and the wave is their canvas.
For Drew Brophy, the whole surfer-artist thing is more literal than figurative.
He's a surfer first, but also has a deep passion for art, hence the "surf lifestyle artist" tag he proudly wears. It's not just a hobby for Brophy—it's his livelihood, his life.
Brophy became a surf lifestyle artist 20 years ago by creating designs for surfboards. Now he and his wife Maria run their art agency, Son of the Sea, Inc., a business in which Brophy's art is created not only for surfboards, but also for t-shirts, skateboards, wakeboards, bikes, motorcycles, even cars and vans. You name it. If you can imagine it, Brophy can do it.
Brophy has an art studio in San Clemente where his surf lifestyle paintings are created and sold to individuals, companies and manufacturers who put his work on their products.
