Irish artist Eoin O’Connor (best known as simply Eoin) has a few passions that inspire his art. Surf culture references dominate his large scale work, but he has recently also been experimenting with these visually stunning eyes. Eoin describes his ongoing quest to establish his own unique style: “I mainly paint ocean inspired scenes in which I try to capture some of the energy experienced while in and around the water. Over the past year I have been working towards merging the 3 areas in which I draw inspiration – surfing, street art and fine art. My goal is to create something that can bridge the gaps between genres and stand alone as my own style.” We’d say he is well on his way.



Brazilian artist Tom Veiga is passionate about surf culture, and that’s reflected in his vibrant, illustrative work. “My art is the union of design and waves, in my artworks I always try to translate in lines, shapes, colors and contrasts all the inspiration I get from waves.” Veiga was recently commissioned by Australian clothing and surf wear brand Billabong to create a collection called “Tom Veiga for Billabong”, with fantastic results.
