Old Surfboards Do Not Decompose
And So Remain, Filling Our Landfills
Stewart Maxcy recycles used surfboards by using them to create on, instead of a typical artist's canvas. He paints beach scenes above the water,underwater scenes, or split views. Since old surfboards never decompose in our landfills, using them as unique art keeps them out of our landfills. Purchasing his art makes a positive environmental impact. Stewart's art can also make a statement about your lifestyle and love of the water.
Stewart works with surf shops to purchase used boards and he is always on the lookout for used boards. He has used new boards too, and a few skimboards as canvasses for his art. Stewart has boards hanging in local businesses, offices, and homes and has also shipped his art all over the United States
Stewart Has Painted Nearly 100 Boards
All Handpainted with Acrylics - No Sprays or Airbrush
Most of the boards that Stewart has painted are custom orders, sold before he begins. The clients tell him the elements they want and Stewart puts them together in a rough sketch. Then Stewart preps the board, does the art work. Then clear coats are applied and hangers installed, hidden on the back back of the boards. The clients receive their board ready to hang. Stewart paints the boards in vertical or horizontal formats.
Lately Stewart has had more people furnishing boards they no longer ride, that they currently ride, or new boards to paint. Stewart's work provides people with a unique, custom and personalized board.
