The Creation of a Teahupoo Champ – San Clemente, CA
September 2014

The piece celebrates Gabriel Medina’s win at Teahupoo and is inspired by a conversation he and his mother had prior to the final with Kelly Slater. His mother told him “there is no one bigger than God.”

The artwork is based off Michelangelo’s ‘The Creation of Adam’ painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome.
