Today we’d like to introduce you to Vincent Darmohusodo.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I’m a local photographer based in Encinitas, CA. As a child growing up in Indonesia, I was always close with the ocean and nature. I now live in Encinitas, CA and my passion with both the ocean and nature continues through surfing and photography. I wish to share some of my favorite photos I have taken the last several years between my hometown of Encinitas and my travel back to my root in Indonesia and a few places in between.
I want to share my photography in a different and unique way. While most print their photos on different mediums such as canvas, metal, acrylic and wood, I specialize in transferring my photography work on recycled wood. I literally transfer the ink from a paper print to the wood surface. The process is entirely handmade and each item is unique. The result has rustic and vintage look that printed photo lacks. Using old recycled wood as my medium really adds another layer of character to the finished product.
Please tell us about your art.
I specialize in transferring photography on recycled wood. I think that the photography field is filled with so many talented people and it is really easy to get your work swallowed by them. I want to create a different and unique look that will make my work stand out and be different than the crowd. Instead of printing my photos, I literally transfer ink from paper to wood surface. This process gives so much more character and texture to the finish products that printers can’t do. I take my work a step further by using old recycled wood as my medium. Each piece is artistically handmade and no two items are ever the same. In the end, I hope that I can inspire people to follow their passion not be afraid to create their own lane and be unique.
Given everything that is going on in the world today, do you think the role of artists has changed? How do local, national or international events and issues affect your art?
I really believe that events around us inspire artists to voice their opinion through different forms of art.
My photography focuses on ocean and surf and I hope to inspire everyone to keep our beaches and water clean.
