Marina Syntelis from Greece is swiftly becoming one of the world's greatest hyper realistic wave artists and 'Proteus' is another incredible painting!
There is so much ferocity in the wave as it crashes from height and then turns inwards as if looking at the viewer saying 'catch me if you can!'.
Marina in her words says "In this painting the wave becomes a creature. The ancient Greek God Proteus uses the sea water to obtain his shape. A violent, powerful God turns into a violent, powerful wave emerging from the darkness, just about to crash and dissolve, only to appear again with a different shape
