Really great independent publishing project up and running. Paper Sea: Honest stories and critical pictures about surf, travel and art


Paper Sea Quarterly started as a simple recognition of the need for change. Intelligent, creative men and women with an appreciation for hand-crafted quality will find honest stories and critical pictures on surf, travel and art from likeminded contributors the world over.We saw the need for a creative alternative and so we present to you a quarterly book for people who share our affinity for the ocean, creativity in its infinite manifestations and the thrills and perils of travelling amongst far away cultures.

In the latest issue they have paintings by Kåre Martens (a fave artist of ours)

Kåre Martens writes

When I create paintings my ideas come from the head, not the gut. The head is all about reasoning and responding to a particular problem. The ideas that come from the gut, however, are more intuitive, more an expression of past experiences, not something that can necessarily be controlled. I painted this series from the gut. My father was a sailor. Like many young men of his generation who lived on the Norwegian coast, he started on a commercial ship and travelled the world when he was fifteen years old. I know him to be a fairly straight-laced man but the stories that pop out now and then are incredible and seem out of tune with who he is today.
