tomio: the artist

I went to a really cool party hosted by Kirby Fukunaga, a Hawaiian Pro surfer that's been coming to Japan over the years chasing typhoons, doing JPSA events and having a good time along the way. He had been taking care of a couple of young Hawaiian rippers, Kelia and Isaiah Moniz, with big futures ahead of them and the party was to push their profiles in the Japan surf scene.At the party I met a friend of Sei Nagai, Tomio. He is a really talented artist with a groovy laid back vibe to his surf and beach lifestyle inspired works. He was doing a live painting as the party proceeded around him and one lucky party-goer had the lucky ticket to win the finished product. I'm sure it looks good on someone's wall!
