Lucy Galbraith is a self-taught Raglan-based artist and former member of the Raglan Surf Co team. A few weeks after hiring Lucy, we discovered that she wasn't just one of the wittiest employees we've ever had but also an incredible artist.
Her recent work draws inspiration from personal nostalgia and the charm of the West Coast's various sub-cultures. Choosing subjects typical to the narratives of small-town New Zealand, she captures the underrated beauty of pig dogs, burn outs, car wrecks and cowboys in both realist and semi-abstract styles.
Over the years we've gotten to see Lucy's art in person at various art shows, including the Raglan Arts Weekend, and it's still blowing our minds.
We are thrilled to officially announce the collaboration between Raglan Surf Co and Lucy, marking the release of the first ever Lucy tee. Watching her interpretation of our West Coast waves come to life was a treat and we're grateful to her for trusting us to turn her vision of the first Lucy tee into a reality.
The Raglan Surf Co x Lucy print is now available both in-store and online. Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of Lucy's unique and captivating artistry.
