BigToe was raised in SoCal on a steady beach-rat diet of Ed Roth, Mad Magazine and Surfer Magazine's Rick Griffin. After over 20 years in the Southern California surfing and apparel industry, he started painting for public exhibition in 2006. BigToe creates art with a casual, tongue-in-cheek sense of humor and playful eroticism that offers a nostalgic escape in our fast-paced and ever-changing world. His art is inspired by the confluence of Tiki, Kustom and Surf culture. The fusion of these seemingly disparate lifestyles has always been an obvious one to the artist: all 3 are outsider ways of life. The last vestiges of wild west renegades. GRATISFACTION: The Unaspirational Art of BigToe is a prodigious collection of over 175 paintings, mugs, and designs from 2006-present. Introduction by Matt Kennedy. Foreword by SHAG. 128 page full color hardcover, 11.5" x 11.5"
