Welzie (Nick Welles) creates unique whimsical pieces of art inspired by his beach lifestyle and bright Hawaii surroundings. His paintings are shown throughout Hawaii’s fine art galleries and large scale murals in California and Mexico. Welzie has been a featured artist for the Greenroom Festival in Japan and the Pow Wow Hawaii mural event along with various publications. His uplifting use of color and imagery has gained international attention. His passion for art grew, using paint pens to draw images on surfboards he created. Surfboards and art collided when he and surfboard shaper Carl Olsen started Two Crows Surfboards, a collaboration that allowed for complete artistic freedom which brought the inspiring surf art from the waves to the gallery walls.
