Bound By Sea one of the monikers of James Robinson – an Artist, Illustrator, Designer, Art Director & Board Shaper. He is a life-long surfer and, above all, a gifted and consummate artist.
Based in Bronte Sydney Australia, James has worked within the Surf/Skate/Snow industry for over 22 years on many great labels including: SMP, Lost, Op, Ocean Minded, The Realm, Split, Carve, Triple J and many more.
Illustration is James’ true passion, and with his focus on the ocean he creates artwork that takes the viewer to another place, a realm that, like the ocean, draws you in for life and becomes a part of you.
Creating artwork under the moniker’s DOLSEN & BOUND BY SEA he has quite literally etched himself a thoroughly unique style and in so created artwork that is not only visually stunning but in every sense a tactile experience.
James crafts his unique surfboards using only sustainable plantation Paulownia blanks sourced from the Byron Bay area of Northern NSW Australia. Each board is one of a kind and the artwork that embellishes each one is hand drawn so no two are the same.
