Kandui Art Gallery
The “Kandui Villas® Collection” is a series of paintings commissioned on-site at Kandui Villas® featuring the surf and seascapes of the local breaks of the Mentawai Islands. Created by the late impressionistic surf artist Robert Heeley, this artwork is characterized by the use of rich and uniquely balanced colors, as these works pique the imagination with thrilling imagery of sparking surfaces and the breath of fresh salt air.
Robert found his inspiration and stoke through the power of nature and the beauty of her magical oceans, and this passion is personified in his art. Robert drew upon his own surfing and sailing lifestyle in creating images that allow the viewer to identify with his seascapes. His love of traveling helped to create and capture the essence of every surfer’s favorite wave, producing dreamscapes of spectacular waves at famous surf spots throughout the Indonesian Mentawai Archipelago.
While he was based in the Santa Barbara area of Southern California, Robert had traveled to create works featuring the waves at famous surf spots throughout California, Indonesia, Hawaii, Mexico and Costa Rica. All of the pieces featured in the Kandui Villas® Collection are for sale, with their size and price located below the picture of each painting. Please feel free to browse through the works and let us know if there are any selections you are interested in acquiring as visual inspiration to keep you in tune with the magical beauty of world-class surf.
Robert Heeley was loved by many around the globe, will be greatly missed, and we feel blessed to have had the chance to spend time with him, and to have his amazing art decorating our walls. R.I.P!
