El Surfero

Anthony Kieren's avatar Anthony Kieren

For this year's ArtPrize, I would like to do a personal piece based on a story from my own life. When I was 19, I had a near-drowning incident in the Pacific Ocean, off Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I was very fortunate to have been rescued by a mysterious surfer who came out of nowhere, spoke perfect unaccented English, and was never seen or heard from again. None of my friends that I was with saw him either. I am not a superstitious person, but I am intrigued by the similarities between my story and the stories of other people who sincerely believe they were rescued by angels.
