If Matisse or Picasso had grown up surfing, golfing and living in Southern California, they may likely have turned out a lot like Robb Havassy. A native of Southern California, artist, designer and author, Robb is known as one of surf culture's creative forces.
Once an international fashion model for the likes of Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Valentino, Christian Dior and Armani, Robb truly began his artistic life in 1996 at age 26, after receiving a beginner’s art kit as a gift.
Robb has created and shown more than 2000 paintings and drawings at exhibitions all over the world. He has helped raise more than $200,000 in philanthropic contributions with his continuing support of and collaboration with the Surfrider Foundation, Heal the Bay, Surf Aid International, numerous wildlife preservation groups as well as dozens of other domestic and international non-profit organizations.
