Mick Sowry

Indo girl by Mick Sowry

Musica Surfica

Mick Sowry it's the man behind Musica Surfica. A film and a experiment about finless surf. We will screen Musica Surfica on the Film Festival and I hope everyone get the same feelings that I had when I watched for the first time. Also, Mick's it's a awesome photographer, as you can see above. Well, let's learn more from Mick...

What´s you name and where are you from?
Michael Sowry, but everyone calls me Mick, Micko, Mickey, or in my mate Richie's case, Doogs. (it's a long story).
I live in St Kilda, a beachside suburb of waveless Melbourne, in Victoria, Australia. I wish I lived right on the coast, with a view of a favourite wave. One day.

When did you find out that you would be an artist?
I've always been artistically inclined, but that doesn't make me an artist.

What do you want to show to people when you do you art?
A window to another way of looking at things.

What´s surf for you?
An always place. In Victoria I can paddle out at spots I've surfed all my life, and when I'm there, I'm eighteen again.

Can you tell us some highlights in your career?
After 30 years in advertising surprisingly my highlight would have nothing to do with it. Musica Surfica. It was the first time I did something that was just for me.

Another is my blog, as it's just a great outlet for the odd creative thought that would otherwise never see the light of day.

What comes to your mind when you hear the word Brasil?
The beautiful game played beautifully. The Amazon. Crazy surfers who when you get to know them are... crazy surfers.

How do you feel to be part of an art show over here in Santos city?

Some words to the people that will see your work in Brasil...
I hope you enjoy it as much as I, with a lot of help, did making it...
