Chris Barela’s love for the water has been lifelong. Growing up at the beach and becoming a pro surfer allowed Chris to travel the world. At the peak of Chris’s surfing career he had made it into the finals at the Banzai Pipeline Masters.
Having traveled the world’s oceans, Chris retired from professional surfing, however, he still wanted to stay connected. That connection inspired him to create his first line of bronze sculptures, an amazingly lifelike collection of big game fish. Barela created his own brilliant patina formulas that are now widely used internationally. It is without question that Barela has become one of the world's best sculptor-artists, which grants him the honor of being one of the most influential artists of today.
