This piece was inspired by a trip taken to the Pacific Northwest. Kean was drawn to the raw and rugged coastline and couldn't resist a surf in the cold waters. A local surfer provides some knowledge of a surf break nearby and soon after, Kean was in his wetsuit and in the lineup. Yeew!
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.’
