Kean’s woodblock prints convey energy and a sense of being alive, with each carve, and every wave.
He is an avid surfer and a passionate artist, and in a time when most of the world is focused on negative vibes, he is the embodiment of Aloha.
Kean likes the simplicity and stark contrast of working in black and white, but he occasionally adds tones of blue. The resulting imagery evokes the bold wave art of Japan’s Edo period.
