A look at the art of Rick Rietveld by Christian Beamish. Rietveld’s art is “rooted in the resplendent catastrophe of Southern California’s Surf Culture—its ideals and its anxieties. His paintings tap the lore of the lovely years, the 1950s and ’60s, when woody-driving, nose-riding, ukulele-playing surfers frolicked on pristine shores.”  Rietveld was the creative director for Maui and Sons in the 1980’s and launched his own clothing line, Rietveld USA in 1995 featuring his paintings on loose hanging shirts.
