Experience the Art of Surfing in a new exhibit, Catching Waves, featuring artwork by top Hawaii surfers and Artists: Pete Cabrinha and Mike Field.
The exhibit curated by Elisa Contemporary Art.
Peter Cabrinha Mixed media artist and photographer,
Peter is known internationally as a surfing legend and master water sportsman holding the world record for surfing the biggest wave in 2004. It was a 70' wave at Jaws in Maui. The same passion that has earned him world titles in surfing has also fueled his creative passion for exploring and capturing the essence and mystery of life below the waters of the Pacific Ocean. For Pete, the synergies between the art of surfing and the art of
creating visual images are great. He continues to be captivated by the dynamism between the relaxation and the challenges that make up the creative experience.
Mike Field was born in Guam, but soon found himself on the Island of Oahu, in Hawaii. He received a B.F.A. in 1990 from Loyola Marymount University, in Los Angeles, California.
Mike has come to truly embody all that is Hawaii and immersed himself in various island sports – from canoe paddling, surfing, canoe sailing, and open ocean swimming.
It is through these experiences that Mike has found an abundance of inspiration for his creativity and artwork.
Mike has also worked with Lance Armstrong, and been an active
participant in LiveStrong water sports. About Saint Peter's Church

My main focus for the show was to bring greater awareness of these amazing Hawaiian artists and surfers to a public art space in New York. Both artists capture the essence and spirit of the islands and their artwork reflects their reverence for its beauty and power.
