Painter, Dimitrious Nichols’s, chill vibes and local connection come through beautifully in his Ocean Art series.
“I work in mostly acrylics and love incorporating new ideas and found objects and especially reclaimed wood and materials. I gather inspiration form surfing traveling and enjoying the creative genius of others as a way to stimulate my own callings.”
“I am a lifelong Santa Cruz native born and raised in the Santa Cruz mountains near the summit. I have spent lots of time in Hawaii and this is where I reconnected with my lifelong passion for art and painting. I am inspired by all things and pay particular attention to our natural surroundings and beautiful beaches here in Santa Cruz and around the world. I am an ocean lover and am happiest by the beach. It might be a coincidence but when I was born my dad took me from the hospital at Dominican only hours old to watch the sunrise at Twin Lakes beach. Something must have clicked in my infant mind :D”
