The wonder of waves is that they have an incredible ability to calm us and energise us, all at the same time. That’s one of the reasons we love relaxing by the ocean and having fun at the beach.
The wonder of wave art is that it gives you the opportunity to achieve that in your everyday life at home. And you don’t have to be a surfer to channel the benefits.
Feeling swell is more than about chasing the biggest wave. It’s about bringing that cool, calm and collected feel to an interior space – something that will lift the mood of a room without having to get wet.
Let your worries wash away with conceptual, photographic, mystical and retro wave art. Ready to ride the crest of design?

Given the popularity of surf culture spiked in the 1950s and 60s, retro artists love using it as their muse drawing from the people, language, fashion and lifestyle of the day.
This, of course, includes Gidget girl inspired art alongside filtered photographic and cartoony works.
These retro pieces will enliven any living space, but will particularly funk up a teenager’s room, mancave or sheshed.
