Lee Clark lives
in Anahola on the east side of Kauai, Hawaii where he also
has his studio. Lee works mainly with acrylics, and will
Lee moved to Kauai in the mid-90s
attracted by the Aloha Spirit and the beauty
that surrounds the Hawaiian Islands.
He is basically a self taught artist. His love of surfing
and painting come together, an expression of his inner
self which is beautifully captured in his work.
Clark puts his sensitivity and acrylic paint on canvas to
create images of "perfect waves", as realistic as photographs.
Murals, surfboards, T-Shirts, cars, decals have all been
touched by Clark's creativity.
The island continues to inspire Clark's each day.
"When I look at the waves breaking I can see the brush strokes.
I feel so inspired here. Kauai is definitely 'God's masterpiece'
I just copy his work."
Laird Hamilton's dad, Bill, commissioned Lee
to paint "Laird
at Tahiti" as a 5' x 3'. Bill then made a
replica board with a 3' x 5' Giclee, which he took
to SEMA in 2003. It was auctioned off for $19,500,
and the money went to Ocean Reefs.
