All the artworks and designs are made by Filip Suryana, who has been painting since the age of five under the guidance of his father, Yan Suryana, who is a renowned Indonesian painter. At the age of 17, after graduating from high school, he decided to become a professional artist and start a business. On 19th November 2013 he created the Burning Ocean logo and by 2014 he hand-printed the first product prototypes in his basement. Growing up in Bali, Indonesia, one of the values he learned was the traditional Balinese philosophy ‘Tri Hita Karana’. Roughly translated as: ‘the three reasons for prosperity’; achieved by keeping the harmony between God, people, and nature.
