Introduction The fascinating journey that started in Bulgaria's Black Sea, via Morocco, Canada, and ended in California, is the insight of Alex Krastev's artistic vision, a reflection of his journey and memories from the places he has been. Alex discovered his passion for surfing at 16 years old, too young to drive, he made his way on the bus every day after school to the local surf spot Anchor point in Taghazout- Morocco. The colorful moments from his journey to the beach and standing at the waters edge, along with the inspiration from his parents who where both artists themselves and avid beach goers, his father who spent his youth as a lifeguard, proved to be the biggest inspiration to his artistic vision. Alex has worked for more than a decade for the giants of the surf industry, Quiksilver for 8 years and Rip Curl as being their Sr. Graphic Designer responsible for almost every T-shirt for the last 5 years. His paintings and graphics extend beyond T-shirts and into the fine arts of all media and his art can be found in places like Whole Foods, Pasea Hotel and more. His style is based from the vision he had always had of that hungry surfer looking and dreaming about the sea.
