ABOUT ANDY DAVIS ART
Andy Davis is a legend of the surf art scene, providing the surf world with his unique laid back surfer characters for over 2 decades. He has influenced many other artists that have followed and worked with many major surf brands with his artwork used across different mediums.
Generally using faceless characters, Andy utilises simple lines and minimal designs, but effortlessly conveys so much more.
His designs convey the easy going surfer mentality with such a unique style, and that is the reason I think his artwork stands out and appeals to both surfers and non surfers alike.
As a surfer himself, Andy’s focus on the mellower side of surfing came about in the late 1990’s when he befriended a number of influential surfers such as Joel Tudor, Jimmy Gamboa and Dane Peterson among others. Hanging around these early pioneers in the resurgence of the modern longboard and alternative surfboard era (ie traditional logs, eggs and fishes etc) flipped his focus from high performance shortboards to a ride anything approach which had a big influence on his work.
