According to Jim Moriarty, past president of the Surfrider Foundation, “Wade Koniakowsky’s focus is capturing Polynesian dreamscapes and the related emotional tie we have with far away lands. His vibe intersects with those same emotions – unspoiled, nirvana-esque landscapes, islander portraits, and ephemeral visions that make you want to sell it all and travel.”

Koniakowsky’s Ocean Art Gallery is in Solana Beach and features a full array of his ocean paintings and surfboard art. He does a live ocean art demo there each Sunday. For more information and to see more of his art, visit
