Longtime Malibu artist and surfer Warren Long has died. He was 62. 

Long, best known for his whimsical paintings and furniture that featured fish, mermaids, angels and flying pigs, was also a teacher. He worked at the Malibu Garden School in the 1990s and his Big Rock beach studio — full of paintings and sketches of the found objects collected along the shore that he used as sculptural elements in his work — was always open to students and visitors.
