WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Sean Ruttkay, the man behind Elemental Digital Art, is a local artist who photographs waves and coastal landscapes.

His artwork is unique because it is all weather proof. He begins by taking HD photos of waves barreling, then enlarges the images and stretches them over metal.

He also creates one of a kind abstract pieces that mimic the waves.

"You never know how an abstract piece will turn out until it is complete," said Ruttkay. "Some people love them and some people hate them, it's all subjunctive."

Ruttkay's work has been featured at the Fort Fisher Aquarium, and Thursday night it will be featured it at the Billabong Party and Art Show in Wrightsville Beach.The event starts at 8:00 p.m. at Red Dogs.

Famous surfers will be showing their artwork at the event as well. The party is open to all ages. If you would like to view Ruttkay's work visit his web site at EDAsurf.com
