Brophy, a self taught artist originally from South Carolina, has made his way through the surf art world with his vibrant depictions of perfect waves and sunny beaches.
His artwork not only leaves the viewer in awe, they are also left inspired. The majority of his personal inspiration comes from his surf travels around the world. In fact, he originally used his artistic talent to help fund his many surf adventures.

Today Drew Brophy and his wife run Son of the Sea, a surf art company that licenses Drew’s and other artists art out to companies who produce high-end products with their designs printed on them.
Today you can find numerous boogie boards, beach towels, t-shirts and other products with Drew’s designs on them.
