SURF SHACKS – ALRIK YUILL
/MARK (CONTRIBUTOR- PHOTOS AND INTERVIEW)
Of the sea and the studio, Alrik is driven in his pursuit of art and the tidal ebbs and flows of how it effects his life pursuit of surf. A sculptor and painter first, Alrik applies both in his shaping of Space Time surfboards, experimenting with form and flow. His studio is full of figures watching, poetic, mid-pose, demure or contemplative. Paintings that are abstract in form and exploding in an edited palette of turquoise and black, with a highlight or lowlight tone caught trickling over the canvas. His shaping bay is within the studio, so art is also a part of his surf crafting...
The bus is a wayward escape... always to the sea, driven to space and time of another type of artistry, on canvases of winds and swells.
