Checking in with last week’s #CreativeSpace contest winners, @wooden_wave.
Hey Matt & Roxy, can you tell us a bit about what you do?
We’re a husband and wife art team based on the island of Oahu, in Hawaii. We work under the name Wooden Wave, and specialize in hand-drawn illustration, painting, and lettering. We also love to participate in art shows and to paint murals. Much of our work is surf and skate related; our most recent series depicts treehouse skateparks. We call it “Off the Grid and Off the Ground,” as the work usually has a sustainability theme to it.
How many years have you guys been creating?
We met in a painting class 9 years ago, in college. While separately we have different styles, we work well together and have developed an aesthetic that draws on each other’s strengths. Matt is the draftsman, who likes to draw architecture and portraits. Roxy loves to paint and work with color. That, combined with a sense of humor and long hours in the studio, has really pushed us to take on projects that we may not have had separately.
Where is your creative space located?
We built out our studio from scratch in a warehouse in Honolulu. Although it’s an old industrial district, it’s alive with galleries, murals, and community events. Our studio is part of a larger collective of artists called Lana Lane Studios.
