Surfboards and Flowers

Wallpaper by Geoff McFetridge seen at Beachwood Café, Los Angeles - Surfboards and Flowers
This is the statement of Californian artist Geoff McFetridge, when asked about his feelings and inspirations for the piece. “In the morning I can go to my studio and then I can find myself deep in the mountains in only an hour on a bike, you know? That’s kind of incredible. It takes effort for sure, but I like that kind of effort.” It is comforting to know that he utilizes the landscapes around him to create his images. Similar to another one of his works a mural called Surfboards and Flowers, he got his inspiration while being in a surf town and the water, away from other people.
