Inspired by the surf, sand and sea, San Diego-born impressionist Tony Spineto utilizes color to “capture the essence of the freedom and flow of the sea.” And he does so brilliantly.

A past contributor to the art gala, Spineto is creating a piece right now especially for Surfrider’s May 21st event.

While Spineto works his magic, check out these amazing examples of his surf-inspired original oils and giclees on canvas, including “Toes Over 1” and “Chillin.”
