Vintage Hawaii Surfing Posters – beautiful line ups

I found these beautiful and almost romantic surf posters by surf artist Wade Koniakowsky. Wade started drawing pretty much instantly as a kid and got involved in surfing at age 12, around 1966. By then I was immersed in art as well. Naturally, surfing would be a favourite subject. If you want to read more about Wade, this is a really great interview. These few pieces of Hawaii surf art are my favorites, please feel free to browse more of Wade Koniakowsky surf art If you click on below surfing posters it will take you directly to allposters.com were you will be able to buy any poster in different sizes and finishes.

Michael Cassidy – Surfing Posters

Michael Cassidy was part of the “Surf Generation” inSouthern California in the 1960’s. For Michael Surfing became more than just a sport, it was a way of life that produced its own unique perspective. Michael spent three years in the commercial art/fine art program at Palomar College in Sourthern California, and two years in the Illustration Program at California State University at Long Beach. He returned to Palomar for two more years taking life drawing and painting classes-over and over again. He spent the next several years in various art-related assignments-commercial illustration, advertising design, poster design, photography and magazine work-but, not unlike one of his own idols, Maynard Dixon, it is a stint working in a humble sign shop to which Cassidy attributes much of his style.

In the art world, where artists are often tempted to tailor work to an existing “market”, Michael Cassidy is truly an original. He creates his art as it comes to him and the audience for it seems to find him-lately, with quite a bit of enthusiasm. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Why Surfing Posters?

Because I love surfing, everything about it, the early mornings, sand between my toes, the anticipation of your next surf. I grew up in Sweden were I started surfing in a thick wetsuit, gloves and hood in small messy waves. Now I live on the Gold Coast, Australia and love every moment, surfing as much as I can.

This website is dedicated to surfing, surf posters and surf art. Enjoy!
