Hilton Alves? Who is Hilton Alves?
Hilton Alves, a true artist and waterman. Hilton Alves has specialised in art portraying surf and the ocean. Hence, Hilton Alves has been labeled a surf artist. Hilton Alves was born in 1980, in the brazilian town Guaruja, Sao Paulo. Living so close to the ocean resulted in an immediate embracing relationship to the sea and the waves already from a very young age. Nearly every day you could find him in the sea, either surfing, snorkelling or just admiring the oceanic beauty, and instead of dousing with the years, his passion for the ocean just kept on growing. This love and passion for the marine becomes very apparent when you have a look at his artistry:
Hilton started his professional career as a artist in 2000, when he first decided to go with his dream and try to live of his paintings. He specialises in drawings, oil paintings and airbrush. His skills evolved, and in 2004 he expanded upon his works to include murals. These can be admired – in the mural flesh- in Santos, Guaruja, Sao Paulo, Bahia and Floripa in Brazil and on Oahu in Hawai’i. He was also the mastermind behind the project “Surf Art Kids”.
