A painting of three men holding surfboards by artist Lovisa Oliv, printed on fine art archival textured watercolor paper.
Born and raised in Sweden, Lovisa Oliv has an innate appreciation for the clean, elegant lines of Scandinavian design. After studying fashion design in Florence, Italy, and at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, Lovisa moved to Maui and fell in love with the tropical weather and island lifestyle.
Combining her knowledge of balance and proportion with the flowing nature of watercolor, Lovisa creates unique artwork that is simultaneously precise and fluid, filled with seemingly effortless movement. A closer look reveals Lovisa’s meticulous attention to detail and careful planning - thoughtful layers of color and luminosity and imaginative use of negative space and contrast lend each piece striking depth and definition.
Lovisa’s playful watercolor illustrations have led to art collaborations, commissions and licensing with clients around the world.
