8 TRACK GALLERY
2015 8 TRACK GALLERY presented by Powerful Water Company
Featured Artist: Nick Radford AKA Frootful // Film: Jason Feast
The annual London Surf / Film Festival charity gallery show gained a reputation as one of the most exciting reinterpretations of the concept of ‘Surf Art’.
In 2015 we celebrated sight and sound, the way in which music affects our viewing experience, colours our emotional response to moving images and how the perfect soundtrack helps to reveal the true story.
We invited 8 of the UK’s most exciting creatives to produce or reinterpret the album artwork for an iconic surf movie that inspires them. They created a stunning body of work ranging from classic pencil portraiture through to graphic illustration.
These one-off A2 prints were previewed throughout the London Surf / Film Festival. Each unique piece is available to buy with all proceeds going to the LS/FF 2015 charity partner THE WAVE PROJECT.
The BUY IT NOW price is £120 plus P&P
