Jo Cunningham's Profile
Artist with a thing for surfboards, wild cats and walls of noise.
Coming from a family of surfers, it was at a time when Jo was away from her family and unable to visit the coast that she began painting on surfboards, hoping to somewhat relieve her longing. The first board she painted was the one she rode as a teenager, no longer surfable but too sentimental to throw away. After this first experience she was hooked.
"There's something about the shape of boards that inspires me so much more than a square canvas. These paintings, these boards, they really create themselves, I'm just along for the ride. And it's so exciting to bring back to life something that would otherwise be thrown away."
