Sketches By Ozzie Wright

Ozzie Wright is the “Wizard of Death.” He spanks bass and gets vocal in his rock band, The Goons of Doom, and creates works of art that are hung in galleries and purchased with multiple currencies. He grabs rail on dislocated wedges and wears fun clothing. It’s Ozzie’s creativity that allows him to move freely on this Earth. And on a recent SURFING adventure in Samoa, the punk-artist painted his style on every canvas available: wave faces, friend’s boards, even airplane barf bags. Our managing editor, Beau Flemister, was there to talk with Ozzie about his art. Psychedelic words were spoken and inspirations were revealed.
