STUART SMYTHE, East Cost, New Zealand


Stuart is a salty soul born from the beautiful east coast of New Zealand where he grew up in, and around the ocean. He relocated to Indonesia where his days are spent living asimple humble life as an artist, illustrator, graphic designer and photographer. Smythe is inspirited by the ocean, surf culture and personalities who enjoy it. This is reflected within his artwork and certainly his photography.  It is the unique interaction of sea loving culture and the elements that Smythe likes to explore both in paper and ink or through his eyes and a lens.

“Nature is much larger than we know, its untameable and humbling, it’s also the place where I feel most at ease. Time in the sea has given me so much happiness, and its nice to give back with photos and stories of what I see.”
