Summary: "In the late 1980s the young surfer and artist, Gerry Wedd, came to the attention of Mambo Graphics, the iconoclastic surf-wear company. With his sense of humour, his subject matter, his encyclopedic knowledge of surfing culture, and his 'scratch board' style of drawing, Wedd found a spiritual home in Mambo and helped build the developing Mambo ethic. But there's more to Gerry Wedd than Mambo. This latest book in the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) series showcases the work of a unique artist who works in a wide range of media, including ceramics, public art, jewellery and fabric design."--From the publisher.
