The collection features Aaron's high impact, large format photographic prints of waves, surf shots and many other exotic images collected from a lifetime of traveling, as well as recycled eco-art, surfboard art and fountain fish tank sculptures. From perfect waves in Tahiti, waterfalls in Bali and the deserts of Southern Africa, gallery visitors experience these pieces in a larger-than-life format and are treated to a visual feast of tranquility, inspiration, energy and excitement. Voted Best Art Gallery in Solana Beach 5 years running, Aaron Chang's Ocean Art Gallery is a must visit while in town. less
