A Great Wall - 9* artists, 9 days, 9 surfboards - you can win!

February 12 2012 | Posted in Art Blog Event Information

When you’re at the Australian Open of Surfing, be sure to take your eyeballs for a stroll past the Art Wall.

Nine super-talented, Sydney-based artists with ties to the surf and skate scenes have accepted invitations to participate during the event. 

Each day, our guest artist has free license to get creative on a section of the wall … they can do, create, paint and draw whatever they want!

They’ll also get a brand new – white – surfboard to use as a canvas.

“What’s in it for me?” you ask?

Well, in addition the impact the art has on your consciousness (which is yours to keep) you can also enter the photo competition. Yeew!

Shoot a photo of the wall (whatever section you like the best) post it to Twitter & Instagram at #AUSOpenOfSurf and if your pic is chosen as coolest, you will receive that section of the wall as a prize!

The great Art Wall is located opposite the Beach Bowl and you can watch the artists get creative as they do their thing.

Here’s a list of contributing artists and the dates you can see them:

Invited Artists:

  • Chris Yee and Barrett Myles (Saturday Feb 11th)
  • Cam Wall (Sunday Feb 12th)  
  • Ozzie & Otis (Monday Feb 13th)  
  • Ben Brown (Tuesday Feb 14th) (same dude who did the Beach Bowl art!)  
  • Rad Dan (Wednesday Feb 15th)
  • Laura Ives (Thursday Feb 16th)
  • Paul Mcneil (Friday Feb 17th)
  • Damian Horan (Saturday Feb 18th)

The completed surfboards will be auctioned at the end of the event.

Thanks heaps to Surfection Co-op!

*there’s actually 10 or 11 artists, but the title looked more eye catching repeating the number ‘9’. Yeew.
