Lines On Water Gallery


For 2014  we are celebrating the art of storytelling and the power of narrative in surf filmmaking. For all great works have one thing in common – they take the viewer on a journey, convey a message, tell a tale. The best of those finely turned phrases and iconic lines stay with us, go on to become sound bites in our every day living – cultural reference points shared with like minds.

This year we approached some of the UK’s most exciting creatives and tasked them with crafting a work that celebrates the power of words – choosing a phrase or a line from a film that resonates with them. They have produced an astonishing body of work, represented in many formats; from graphic phrases, illustrations, cartoons, charcoal and oil through to complex folded paper. Each work of art will be presented as a one off A2 print to be exhibited in the gallery for the duration of the festival. They will then be auctioned for charity.

Our contributing artists who have generously donated their time are: Richard Bull / Bull, Rich Braham / Whale Submarine, Nick Radford / Frootful, Chris Dorning / Moot, Ben Cook / Littoral Drifter, Ed Syder, Steve Wintercroft / Wintercroft, Gemma Chalmers, Zander Grinfeld / Venn, The Lab and Leo Stockley.

The works are original pieces – each a unique work of art. They are available for sale with all proceeds being split between two great causes – our charity Wateraid and the festival environmental partner #2minutebeachclean.
