Severson is undoubtedly one of the world’s top surf artists. Art historian Gordon T. McClelland says Severson is “the premier surf culture artist. No one has captured the stoke of searching for surf, riding huge waves, or just paddling out, better than Severson.” John is also well known as a surfer, filmmaker, clothing designer, photographer, writer and the founder of Surfer Magazine. His art has been displayed in several galleries and museums around the world. Today Severson lives on the island of Maui with his wife, painting and surfing every day.
