Gumbaynggirr – Bundjalung man Otis Carey is equally renowned for his unorthodox approach to high performance surfing as he is for visual art. Otis infuses his own traditional indigenous culture with contemporary Australian surf.
Based in Austin Texas, Tim Kerr became involved musically and artistically with the early stages of the DIY (Do It Yourself) punk/hardcore/self-expression movement in the 1970’s. The idea that anyone could, and should participate in self-expression is key to Tim’s approach to music and visual art.
Australian professional surfer, artist, filmmaker and musician Ozzie Wright is renowned for his radical surfing innovation and punk rock aesthetic.
