After an awesome and well received exhibition in Sydney the O’Neill x Monster Children Global Art & Innovation Tour has journeyed to its next stop, Bali, Indonesia. On Saturday night a very hip and creative mix of surfers, artists & industry turned out to soak in the 6 decades of O’Neill at the newest Seminyak venue Mantra.
The global exhibition again showcased wetsuits from the 6 decades, advertising & brand art work along with the commissioned art works by Campbell, Penxa, Jim Phillips Jnr, McFetridge, Gerard & Chapman which are being auctioned at the final stop in Santa Cruz; as well as an amazing display of local artworks portraying Jack O’Neill and his iconic look.

“Mantra was jammed” Said Indonesian Brand Ambassador Tai “Buddah” Graham ” Were super stoked with the response and the turnout to our first major event here in Indonesia. The mix of people on the night was great and saw all walks of life through the doors. From your everyday surf enthusiast to some of Indonesia’s best surfers, through to top musicians, and of course the contributing artists all there to celebrate the legacy of a true innovator in Jack O’Neill. It was a great sign of things to come for the brand in the future no doubt”
O’Neill International Brand ambassador Rob Bain who set up and attended the event had this to say ” I couldn’t of asked for a better night in showcasing O’Neill and Jack’s amazing story. The Indonesian artists rallied and created some amazing pieces which I am sure Jack would be proud of. It was a great crew that showed, and we are stoked on how the team put it all together.Thanks to the Bali community”.

Harry Radcliffe who will be co-partnering in a new venture managing O’Neill in Indonesia was equaly thrilled “We couldn’t have asked for more. We are so happy to have been able to show the community and the industry here what O’Neill really is about. It was a great turnout and just the way to bring O’Neill back on the map here in the region. It was also great to see so much support from local artists, musicians, surfers, legends and industry leaders who all came together enthusiastically to celebrate the story of Jack O’Neill”
