Surf’s up for Shepard Fairey, Raymond Pettibon, Barry McGee, and 22 other artists who were invited to interpret the world’s most iconic waves for the Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the world’s oceans. Thanks to a cherished (and yes, fluorescent) childhood t-shirt, we’ve heard of Mavericks and Pipeline but had to consult our surf-crazy left-coast colleagues for the scoop on the rest of the famed waves, which include the vividly named Superbank, Restaurants, G-Land, and Swami’s. Fairey (that’s his work, pictured above) used spray paint and stencils to take on Jaws, the monster swells off the north shore of Maui, while Andy Moses painted a cool abstract on concave canvas in homage to Peru’s Chicama. All 25 works go on the block next Friday evening in Los Angeles during the Surfrider Foundation’s Art for Oceans auction, part of the organization’s 25th anniversary gala. Can’t make it? Get in the spirit of things with the surftastic beach towel that Pettibon created for the Art Production Fund.
