Check out his website : http://www.shag.com/
He has an exhibition here in Paris, in the Paul Smith store. Not tiki, but cool : "holidays on ice" (I'll be at the cocktail reception tomorrow thursday with the artist), and he'll have an exhibition in London : "the call of Kapu" wich might be more tiki, October 28 to November 7.

Sounds great for the euro shag's fan.

Back from the parisian shag's night. It was pretty cool, the paintings are really nice, even if there were no tikis. We had a little conversation with cyril (uke club de paris, album cover by shag), Sunny Buick and Shag...it was nice.
We had a gift box when we left with girly letter paper, we took some pics, shag signed my "tiki art now" book Cyril took me back from SF (so did sunny)...

About the London exhibition : this is going to be a tiki one (new paintings and limited prints).
The opening is October 27th and 28th, 7 - 9pm and afterwards at Trailer Happiness Lounge Bar, 117 Portobello Road (9pm-12pm).

RSVP :
cassie@rogerlaborde.com

If you come to the exhibition, you'll have a free Anejo Highball Cocktail at the Trailer happiness.

Wow! Sounds great - thanks for the heads-up. I'm on a course on the 27th, but might be able to make it down to London in time for the next evening. Do you know which gallery it's going to be at, or will it be at another Paul Smith store?

Cassie never answered my e-mail, so I won't be going. C'est la vie.

Thanks anyway, Virani.

Well, it's just way too far for me to travel just to get turned away at the door because I'm 'not on the list'.

If I'd heard back from Cassie last week, I could have arranged time off, train tickets and a hotel but these aren't really things I can do at the last minute.

Looks like it'll be a cool-looking show, though. Shag seems to be back to what he does best. (Tiki!) Don't forget to take your camera K-H!

Ha, me too! Typical - too late to be any use, though.

Ah well, I can always look at them on the Shag site.

Or I can always see 'em the way Shag painted em!!!

I managed to get time off, transport, and a cheap and cheerful place to stay. I'll be down on thursday, so am looking forward to a damn fine evening of Tiki. How could I even think of missing such a classic show?

Hey, did anyone else notice that the show is sponsored by Havana Club rum? Finally a slice of Tiki Heaven has landed in the Brits' back garden!

Looking forward to a damn fine evening.

Fantastic evening at the Call of the Kapu. Shag the man, the legend was there and even more important his pictures were there. Man, I've always admired his work and his prints are gorgeous BUT seeing the original artwork was absolutely out of sight. The colours on those things just jump out at you.
Apart, the gallery, had a beautiful tiki bar built by our Cheekytiki and the drinks were flowing freely all night. Then onto the fantastic Trailer Happiness for more fabulous free cocktails and conversation. It was one fantastic experience.
I was too busy talking to take any pictures but I think Trader Woody took a few so hopefully he'll post thoose.

Thanks SHAG, great work!

Yeah, it was a great opening(s) the work was fantastic and everyone involved did a great job.
Met a few TC lurkers as well.
Trader Woody had a camera so I'm sure he'll put the pictures up soon.
Its still on till the 7th if anyone wants to go check it out
