Surf- and Ocean-Inspired Art in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is an artist’s muse. Her lush jungles drip with cloud dew; the harmonious animal choir
brings the airwaves to life against electric sunsets
; the deep turquoise seas kiss the white, black, and shell-laced beaches; the colorful and cordial culture
of the Costa Rican people inspires, as does the sense of security and freedom that comes from a country without an army. Costa Rica is a place with inspiration in every nook and cranny. The ocean is the primordial birthplace of all animal life on earth and the source of creativity for some who find a deeper connection to it.
There are artists in Costa Rica who pay homage to this source through their art. The following artists either live in Costa Rica full-time, part-time, or have spent a significant period of time living there. Words can not properly describe the talent here, but photographs of some of their work will do just the trick.
