In this episode, Derik Hyatt chats with Drew Brophy about art, surfing, POSCA paint ( @posca_pens ), @Sublime , tattoos, Greg Knoll, Indigenous rights, working outside the “system” and much more!  A life-long surfer and student of physics, Drew Brophy is known for his Quantum Art, which incorporates sacred geometry, and his distinctive style of Surf Inspired Art.

Drew’s Surf Art innovated a global shift in the way that surfboards were painted in the 1990’s. His style is used in schools as a teaching tool and thousands of artists are influenced by his work.

Drew’s Quantum Art is inspired by his studies of the laws of nature, solar dynamics and ancient cultures. Through his paintings, Drew strives to show that everything is energy and that we are all connected.
