Back in 2018, Felicity Palmateer announced that she would be doing something a little controversial. She’d created a nude surf film that was part of an art project. Three years in the making, the buzz around the film was loud — but then, suddenly, the film was squashed. Well, now Skin Deep is officially on the airwaves.
“The ocean has been my playground, it has shaped my life since I was young, as has art,” Palmateer said. “I use both surfing and art as forms of meditation, motivation, and escapism. I feel most comfortable when I’m either in the water surfing or creating. To be able to intertwine art and surfing in such an intimate way in a project like Skin Deep has been so satisfying.”
