'Cliff's' is Kean's take on this South Shore of Oahu surf break. In the summer months, with a good south swell, Cliff's is the spot to be. The original work of art was created using the woodcut method of relief printmaking with an added color blend monoprint.
About the Artist: Kean’s recent work is a collection of wave studies utilizing this technique. It is driven by a passion for the process and a love affair with the ocean. The relief prints that define Kean’s work render what may have only previously been an abstract feeling for an ocean-minded person. ‘I hope to elicit a reaction in those who have felt that symbiotic connection with the ocean, and at the same time provide access to those who maybe have not had that experience.’
