The world’s greatest surfer, Kelly Slater, has become one of the most outspoken celebrities on political, environmental and cultural issues in his latter years.

Most notably, Slater has challenged the status quo of the menswear industry with his founding of OuterKnown in 2013, which focuses on sustainable clothing made with eco-friendly materials.

The 11-time world champion is taking those strong beliefs and putting them all into a political art show that opens this week in Venice, California, at Folding Table Gallery.

Curated by PM Tenore and featuring Bruce Reynolds, Kevin Ancell and Todd Glaser, it will be “an artistic journey through the chaotic and sometimes inflammatory 2016 election cycle.”

Dubbed “Apolitical Process,” it is certainly one of the more outright political statements Slater has ever made.

He goes on to say that that they “aim to explore and expose the underlying truth, hypocrisy, danger, motivations, misinformation and effects of this process.”

Slater is also in the midst of a world title race, which he only found himself in recently after a victory at the Billabong Pro Tahiti event in August and an equal fifth place at the Hurley Pro Trestles.

Now ranked fifth in the world, Slater is certainly eyeing that elusive 12th world title … But not before making a major statement on the 2016 political landscape.
