Hawaii artist Nick Kuchar is an O‘ahu based artist who creates vintage inspired surf and travel art featuring favorite locations of this ‘āina we call home. His creative process takes him throughout the islands where he looks for inspiration paddling out at surf breaks and going on hikes. He takes onsite sketches and photographs into his studio, where he uses a mix of acrylic washes and digital illustration to bring his vision of these locales to life. Catching waves, spending time at the beach with his wife and twins, listening to Muddy Waters and driving his VW bus are a few of his favorite things. He is inspired by the early days of surfing and beach culture, including vintage color palettes, typography, and the nostalgia that goes with it.
