African Perfection.

African Perfection.

If you’ve been here for a while, then you may remember this post and this post about my favourite little beach town, Jeffrey’s Bay. J-Bay locals live a life centered around the ocean and surfing. That’s probably why the town has such an undeniable laid-back feel. 

Supertubes has to be one of the most famous waves in the world (think the WSL championship tour) and is widely considered as the best right-hand point-break out there. It’s wild to think that for us Eastern Cape locals, it sits right here in our backyard.

Scrolling through his Instagram page @Pseudellusion, it’s hard not to be completely blown away by the elaborate body art pieces and headpieces that he creates!

We sat down to talk about everything, from Luke’s artwork, to his view on social media, challenges he’s faced as a young creator, the ups and downs of living in Port Elizabeth, the influence of his parents – mother Sharon Rudman and late father Andre Rudman, who passed away when Luke was a 1-year-old – on his love for art, and more.
