Using all of these different media, Bloch creates simple, evocative paintings that transform ocean waves into otherworldly compositions of color and shape. His work captivates surfers around the world, and this first ever monograph of Bloch's workdesigned by luminary David Carsonfeatures his best pieces, alongside a soulful account of the artist's life. This gorgeous book of waves is a collaboration between two of the surf world's visionaries that will resonate with beach lovers everywhere.

The art of Wolfgang Bloch reveals much about the man who creates it - the subdued palette, the modest and unexpected materials; all utilized to reduce traditional seascapes to their essence and in the process imbue them with compelling intensity. Wolfgang Bloch: The Color of Coincidence is a creative collaboration between three people who share a deep-seated passion for art and the ocean: Bloch himself, design legend David Carson, and author Mike Stice. They have created an art book as inimitable as the art it captures, an intimate, soulful account of an artist's rich and layered life. alongside the most evocative examples of Bloch's work.
