You have exceptional design ideas. Its nice to see your art again. I never see it on Facebook.

I really like the Tahitian Cannibal in Falu.

My art is on facebook. I no longer share stuff to the group tiki pages because the harassment was of the charts. This past year brought alot of deliberate bullshit from people in the tiki scene to discredit me for not willingly playing the stoopid social games. It may seem like I've tanked my audience but what Im doing is taking tiki beyond the myopic scene, and I'm the only artist who has the kind of work that can do it. or the inclination to do so. After this last weekends opening at la luz and the book release on tiki art I was excluded from. I had to make a statement about it.

"I promised I wouldn't talk about this anymore but A lot of misdirected outrage is coming my way about being left out of the La Luz show and the new book on tiki art. So I kinda have to make a statement .
I can't speak on why I was excluded because no one has given me a believable answer. In fact 95% of anyone who thinks they're important in the microcosm of tiki has remained silent on the whole thing. It's a pretty big deal for me to be left out after nearly 30 yrs of making exclusively tiki art. I'm long over it. I've exited tiki as a scene because it doesn't support or respect my contributions. Its the individual people I've bonded with and the fans that find me on their own that actually support me. I am more driven than ever to execute my vision of tiki modern. I'm not quitting my art,I'm skirting what's kept me down. So,,,, if you are just now catching on that I was excluded-direct your comments towards the ones who excluded me. I can't answer for them. I'm still doing me - a whole lot of phony bullshit free. And I totally plan on owning it." #dawnfrasierartist

My zine with my missing scene history will be available in a couple of weeks in my etsy shop. it chronicles me being a tiki artist since before there was a scene through my recent exit and all the weird backhanded disrespecful bullshit things that have been pulled on me by men in tiki that added up to where I'm at now. Done with being treated second class. Im still a tiki artist I just jumped out of the over crowded pee filled pool.

In spite of all of the shit I've taken in this scene thats led me to defend myself and wad up all the man panties by calling out the horrible treatment- Im still working full time as a tiki artist I just do much bigger projects instead of selling myself all the time. My Moodxotica paintings are headed to Hawaii and Australia this yr, my studio made rugs RUGXOTICA will be in Dwell and Atomic Ranch.
Im launching a new line - Sophista-tiki Modern Home
and all sales of my zine are funding my coffee table book of my unique tiki modern aesthetic.

IMO much better than making the perpetual vending circuit . I never got the appeal of that as an artist.
Im still accessible, I still have great friends I've made in the scene. Ive also seen how phony many of the people are who were there for me until I didnt serve a stepping stone purpose for them any longer because I've gone rogue( eye roll). Honestly I cant disappear completely from tiki because of the connections I still have and the future fans I will have long after the dust settles from the whole shit show of me trying to fit in with the clique. I'm just not playing the game that never suited me in the first place. If you arn't an artist at my level you really have no idea and the experience has been singular.
My whole scene is better now than its ever been I've upped my game in every aspect you can imagine. paid off my house, honed my skills, maintained a high level of integrity, and I look frkn amazing for 51.
Onward and upward.
Thanks to the people who have always been in my corner, stuck with me through all of the bullshit that stressed me out to the point I couldn't take it anymore and will continue to be there as I take my tiki art out of the confines of the tiki scenes suffocating status quo.
Dawn
