Ocean Wave Paintings in Motion

Original seascape oil paintings by Santa Cruz California artist Marc Christian Kunze. Marc grew up along the California coast but spent over 13 years living on the Hawaiian Islands. With a real passion for surfing, Marc Christian Kunze has spent almost as much time in the ocean as on land. From an early age Marc has enjoyed painting waves from both photographs as well as memory. Marc Christian Kunze utilizes oils on canvas ranging in size from 11/14 – 36/44. Waves approach our shores in various shapes and sizes, but there are similarities that allow an artist to capture, depth, motion, shadow and lighting. Most of Marc’s seascape and wave paintings come from a surfers perspective. Waves that break over unique sand bars and reefs produce a unique shape, coveted by surfers worldwide. Marc Christian Kunze work has been featured in many galleries, show and exhibitions throughout the United States. Enjoy the video along with the inspiration and peace that naturally flow from ocean waves.
