What an amazing experience this has been to collaborate on artwork with one of my all-time favorite superstar athletes, Kai Lenny!
I have known Kai since he was a young boy and watched him grow up to become a World Champion. He is truly an inspiration.
Suitably motivated, I joined forces with Kai. I was inspired to develop a unique concept with my surfboard art, bringing the elements of his footprints and autograph, along with my design aesthetic, to life on a gorgeous aqua blue Gun Surfboard. The blue color represents the ocean, the green and white represent the movement in the waves of the sea. The Mālolo or “Flying Fish” is something that connects Kai to the Hawaiian waters of Maui. He often sees them, “flying” out of the water during his ocean adventures.
It has always been a dream of mine to give back, get involved, do something impactful with my art, and this is my something.
I am incredibly grateful to be able to work with Kai and Martin (Kai's dad). It's also been a wonderful, enlightening experience to share with the PYCC facilitators. What a heartfelt, meaningful organization. So far it has been a transcendent experience. The ingredients of Kai Lenny, PYCC, and my art are combining to create something magical; much greater than the sum of the parts! Please enjoy and participate in this adventure! Buy great art, and raise money for PYCC’s mission of, “building community through our youth.”
Join our team! Can you think of a better way to be part of the solution?
