Aloha and welcome to the website of one of Hawaii’s most unique artists. The Triple Crown of Surfing artist Troy Carney has developed a totally new technique that involves the building of a multi-dimensional surface, which is later gilded in genuine gold and pigment rich oils.
Troy integrates all of his experience into a unique process he has used since 2004. Using Japanese knives, his technique involves hand cutting 12-48 layers of texture on wood resulting in a bas-relief that is gilded with 12k-24k genuine gold and finished with traditional oils and rich glazes. His romantically realistic style features exotic elements and sacred symbology.
Since the beginning of 2017 Troy Carney's art has evolved and entered another new chapter. By applying multiple thick layers of clear art resin in between the layers of art Troy is now creating more depth and shadow with his work.
