The Captain Surfs
"It's always about that special moment, more of a feeling than a vision."
That's how North Shore Kaua'i multi media artist Chris Viverito aka The Captain Surfs describes his art. Working in mediums from surf craft shaping and furniture building to pyrography, watercolors and acrylic and everything in between, his main focus in making art is to create a permanent piece of art that conveys just a momentary feeling.
"I try not to get hung up or pigeon hole myself in any particular style or medium, every experience feels different so it just makes sense to me to convey those feelings in a way that feels best to me whether carving wood or hand embroidering."
"A gifted artist, and a genuinely cool guy. Let me add: funny, non-pretentious, generous, and kind. And on top of all that, he sports a sweet beard."
