London Surf / Film Festival X Oakley have teamed up with Approaching Lines and some of the UK’s most exciting surf creatives to present ‘Surf Cinema Re-Vision’, a specially commissioned gallery show and online auction celebrating the connection between art and celluloid in support of Water Aid.
LS/FF tasked a selection of the UK’s leading surf creatives to reinterpret and redesign the art work for an iconic surf film that resonated with them and produce a unique piece that captures the essence of the movie and stirs the imagination. The resulting, ‘Surf Cinema Re-Vision’ collection draws on the work of a hugely talented and exciting pool of UK artists who have a strong connection to the sea including: Richard Bull / Bull, Rich Braham / Whale Submarine, Nick Radford / Frootful, Keiron Lewis / Seamouse, Chris Dorning / Moot, Droog79, Wilma Johnson, Victoria Jones and David Beckitt – illustrators, graphic artists, graffiti artists, typographers, fine artists.
‘Surf Cinema Re-Vision’ gallery show presented by Oakley previewed at the Riverside Studios Gallery, Hammersmith during the London Surf / Film Festival, featuring re-imagined posters from seminal films such as John Millius’s Big Wednesday to modern classics such as Andrew Kidman’s Litmus and these exciting pieces of art are now available to buy.
