Kahn’s Furniture in Miramar Beach sponsors a different local artist every Friday night from 5-7 PM. Complimentary beer & wine is provided during each “Kahncepts Gallery Night.”
Kahn’s Furniture is especially proud to be featuring local legend Harley Van Hyning of Gnarly Fish Prints this Friday, August 3, 2018. Destin VIP Magazine will be covering the event for an upcoming issue.
If you’ve ever taken a fishing charter from Destin Harbor, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Harley in action. Fluent in the Japanese Art, Gyotaku, this laid back surfer is often found lingering on the docks waiting for his inspiration to arrive. Many fishermen and tourists have gone home with an artistic rendition of their catch.
Harley first took an interest in art at a very early age, having a mother that is an artist herself. His mother went to the British Royal Academy of Arts in London and also studied art in Brighton, England. Harley spent most of his childhood watching
his mother paint and it was something that he was immediately draw
n to. Taking art classes growing up, he always enjoyed drawing and painting. Harley claims he was talked out of art school because it wasn’t a wise career choice, but it seems that he was able to overcome that obstacle, making a living for himself doing what he loves.
