Surfers, sailors, mermaids, whales, giant waves, sharks, monsters, dolphins, gods, tridents, pearls, treasures, and even beach party movies from the 60s; the sea is an endless inspiration in art, literature and movies. The ocean is a massive energetic force that enchants us and intrigues us. It is a beautiful source of serenity, but also a mysterious canvas that mirrors our fears of the unknown. We cannot imagine life (and art) without the sea. Even the simplest gestures are magic if they are close to the ocean, like this beautiful poem by Emily Dickinson:
I started Early – Took my Dog –
And visited the Sea –
The Mermaids in the Basement
Came out to look at me.
If you call yourself and ocean lover or you have a friend who is, you’ll appreciate this ten ocean related prints that we put together for all the mermaids and sea creatures out there. Enjoy!
