Luke DeKneef is a self-taught artist born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Growing up surfing on the north shore, he developed a fascination with waves and the movement of water. Acrylic and aerosol mediums help him to create his art on small canvases to large-scale murals that capture a unique perspective which embody the wonderful relationship between humans and the ocean. In his early beginnings, Luke loved to paint waves cascading on the surface of the ocean which in return sparked his curiosity and then started to explore waves from the ocean floor while visually displaying how they move and refract underwater. At the present time, the ocean is still littered in his work but has now developed a fascination to continue his pursuit by learning to explore different art techniques that inspire our role as caretakers of this amazing planet.
