I'm Johny Vieira, born in 87, from Santa Cruz, Portugal. After starting to surf, 20 + years ago, ocean became a place where I constantly seek inspiration, fun, and energy. It is in the ocean where I feel at home and useful to myself.
Surfing also became a bridge to and a platform for the world of creating. Nowadays I´m dedicated to painting with watercolor. I like to transfer the essence of surfing, traveling, and exploration of empty lineups into a painting. Basically, this is it.
