Eduardo X SEAY

The SS20 collection is designed by Eduardo Bolioli. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1961, he migrated to New York with his family in the late seventies, where he studied at the prestigious School of Visual Arts. He moved to Honolulu in the mid-eighties, and made a living painting surfboards for pro surfers, including world champions Shaun Tomson, Sunny Garcia and Martin Potter.

He became the art director for Blue Hawaii Surf, and later, for Local Motion, and he designed for surf brands like Quiksilver, Billabong, Gotcha and Guess. Now he is the head of the creative team of the SOSEATY project.

Bolioli has won several awards for his art, including the Aloha Award by the HACER Society in 1992, the Stimulus Award at The Mosca Biennale in Uruguay (1995) and the Premiere award in Les Embiez, France. In 2002 he received the golden award for his contribution to the arts at the Premios a la Cultura awards in Montevideo, Uruguay, and his Absolut pieces are part of the Absolut Museum in Sweden.

Over the years he had solo and group shows in New York, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Tokyo, Seattle, Kona, Scotland, Caracas, Lima, Bogota, Quito, Uruguay, Miami, San Francisco and New Jersey, and his paintings are in private collections around the world.
