Hey everybody, I used to be on this list in 2001....don't know if anybody remembers me...anyhoo...

Just wanted to announce my reawakening to Tikidom. I have been swimming in a sea of Mod in London for a long time, it's good to be back in the states, but not in Florida! Wish I were somewhere alot more tiki, and where I had access to more mods...so I'm thinking of moving to San Francisco soon. Or L.A.

I am a painter/sculptor/scenic artist/prop/costume designer who would love to make things for you, so let me know if you have any ideas that need to come into fruition.

Mahalo!

Funny you mention that, when I was there 2 weeks ago there's this big tiki sitting by itself in the strip mall there that isn't really by the Kon Tiki, just off to the side between the shops and the bar, never noticed it before. I'll have to try and get some exterior pictures the next time I go down.

Welcome Steve! Maybe you can post pics of the Kon Tiki for us to see?





...The exterior is pretty cool too maybe I can just get my buddy to take some pictures.

Steve, if the big Tiki at the side entrance is still there, post a pic of it, and we can start a contest to find it in the Book Of Tiki. It came from distant shores...
Too bad about the sign. (BOT p.117) When will they learn!

He used to have tons of artwork from things he did, but I believe they are no longer around. I think I have more stuff than his son(my cousin).

I have looked for information on him online, but I've never seen anything. I'm just curious how you know his name and where I could find some information.




Matt, I'm glad my hunch was right, but sad to hear so little of your uncle's artwork is left! I love original architectural renderings, and if you have my Book of Tiki you can see his painting of the Hale Tiki (Kona Kai) Philadelphia on page 54/55 and for the Kon Tiki Montreal on page 96/97.

I don't know anything about him other that he worked for Armet& Davis. Eldon Davis is still around,(Louis Armet who was more in charge of the Polynesian buildings died in the 80s in a ski accident). Try my friend John English who is in charge of the Armet & Davis archive, I'll send you his e-mail.
If you or your Cousin have any more Tiki Temple sketches, let me know, please.

Welcome to Tiki Central Bruno. Always a pleasure to get a new international Tiki-phile on board. Now tell us about Tiki in SA!
Are there any Trader Vic's style restaurants in any of the hotels down there?

not really, Woody. There are a few collectors, but Tiki is largely an underground movement down here. SA is literally about as far away from Hawaii and the Polynesians as you can get. There's quite an exotica scene though amongst some of the djs here, just no real tiki lounges to play in.

Wow… I’d love to go there again, Tiki bars in Biarritz? A great place for tiki bars!!!
Do they have web presence, what are they called. This is really great news, as I am trying to encourage friends in another european surfing mecca to go tiki. Since their son is sponsored by quiksilver europe and surfing in france regularly, the family should check the places out a.s.ap.

Where?

Mombo,
Are you a male artist of Italian descent or are you an artist that produces works of art featuring Italian men?

Hi I'm a spooky Tiki fan from Middle Earth ( New Zealand).
I have had a thing for Tiki and Hawaian shirts and have just started to collect them.

I also like the idea of merging Goth with Tiki

Samina,

Do you dress in black and listen to The Cure?

Well, heck, who doesn't?

Welcome, Samina! I'm trying to picture the merging of goth & tiki, and I'm just not getting it. There's almost a link there between tikis and gargoyles, and dark rooms come into play for both. But how does it come together?

Yeah I wonder how they could come together.
Those wimpy, bed-wetting vocals of Robert Smith and the allmighty Tiki?

I don’t see it, yet…
