Wow, all this art work is is so cool. Little lost tiki, awesome as always. Kirby, love it.
Tobunga that's a great painting. I have to say the Stockton Islander in the background is a nice touch. Bigbro that is so cool to see the original BOT cover art. That really would be a treasure to have.

BOT, for me, is like one of those giant golden keys that a Mayor occasionally awards. Itís just that the city the key unlocks is a lot like Disneyland. No doubt, BOT has put me on an enjoyable ride with a drink in hand. Iím happy I have a key!
Congratulations & Thank you Sven!

I will be returning home in two days. With me, entering American soil for the first time, will be the original art work for the Book of Tiki cover, expertly mounted by the artist who painted it, Moritz R.



Originally the work consisted of three seperate painted pieces: The Tiki, the background and the letters. Moritz reunited them in a shadow box for this exhibition. It is the ONLY original art work of the cover. I should buy it, but it deserves to get the price that it is worth.





Tiki Magazine will do a cover story on Moritz next year

Hereís my piece, it is one of the Witco inspired wood art (architectural) paintings, the building being the Royal Hawaiian Estates in Palm Springs.
I am in the middle of creating my show/s for Mondo Lounge in Vegas (Friday night) and a solo show at M-Modern in early November, Iíll post the dates here and fb if you come to any of them please say hello. Iíve been at this the last couple of weeks and my head feels like itís going to fall off. Iím hoping to try and get another piece out for the BOT show but time is becoming a factor.





Thanks for looking

Bosko

Oouw Bosko! Me want....how can I withstand the temptations of the many fine pieces in the show that show the things I love!?

By not wanting to go broke! Moritz's BOT cover, to answer the question above, carries a price tag of 3 grand. Which is an absolutely just price for such a singular item, me believes.

Here's #2 for the BOT show, I love making these but they take an inordinate amount of time to create, they are inspired by the Book of Tiki vibe, happy 10th Sven, it has truly been a pleasure.





If you want to see the newest work we're doing for our new shows take a look at

Thanks

Bosko
