There you go again, more great art.
I see one and I think cool remember that title so I can remark at the bottom,
Then I see the next one and think cool remember the title so I can remark at the bottom,
And so on and so on and so on and so on.

In other words, AWESOME

You are the color master!!!

Holy moly! Love all the new work, Kinny- the narratives speak out for themselves, but love hearing you lead the way!

Which reminds me, I need to post a photo of the painting I bought from you during Oasis!!

All the best!

Mahalo and a Big Hug,Hil!
Almost sold it to soul in Canada
but he opted for a bigger piece
so i am happy i get to live with him for awhile longer..
G;ad he makes you smile,he was simple and sweet
a practice in holding back on the detail
and allow the color and graphic sensibilities to shine
instead of the usual flash and dazzle...

Thanks for posting, Kinny! Love the Processional. Looks like a great party up on top- and (thankfully?) no human (or animal) sacrifices?? Phew!

Aloha Everybody!
Wow! it has been a WHILE,huh?
well, i got some time,so let's have a lil digital exhibition,eh?

But first let me say,"Hello!" to Ano!
Thanks for the visit,Sir! The Processional is indeed a celebration!
a gathering of the tribe,advancing upward!Hopefully someone will fix some pizzas in the umu
once they hit the peak!
Buy you really wanna know why they're so excited?
aaaaaand ,here's the thrilling thing..
Because "the Procession" is NOW in Hawaii!
exhibited at Kozy Tiki palace
alongside Mr. Parker,Mr. Toe,Mr. Horne,Mr, Jimenez,and a few others who
are yet to be OFFICIALLY announced,but are in the works!
http://konakozy.com/
Thanks Kozy,for your hospitality and allowing us to share our work abroad!!
it appears you are the Premiere Contemporary Tiki Art venue on the island!

Here's the Kinny wall...


There are also some prints and original drawings there as well for the good island peoples!
AND LOOK! BRAD Parker APPROVED! RAWK!!!

Hi Brad!

Here's another painting that is now living there....
"Before the Ambush"
15 x 30"
acrylic on wood


an experiment in propulsion,advancing forward into dangerous territory...
i wanted to incorporate some shafts of light in the background jungle area
and they were just the ticket to scoot that little boat forward thru the muddy river...

Here's some closeups for all of youse.....

Hidden faces on the faraway shore
awaiting a signal....
Note the fellow in the middle bottom of the picture....
he appears to be noticing something
maybe a few skulls and bones dangling from branches...


the prow figure holds a skull
a signal that their intentions'
may not be restricted to fishing and exploration....
A figure looms in the shadows of the tree above...


A few more warriors prepare themselves
crouching behind bushes
or pressed tightly against a tree....


and we'll end these closeups with a few enthusiastic brush rustlers
awaiting the signal...

Oh! But first....
Here are some of the studies/original inspiration/musings that led to the piece above...



Also working on a HUGE 18 x 36" Eye POPPIN piece
i will tease you with here...
it's called "the Path"

There are more advanced shots on my FaceBook page
it's public ,so you can just lurk
or friend me if you like!

Here's another piece at Kozy's gallery

"Guardians of the Island"
acrylic on wood
10 x 20"

Sentinels scout the horizon
for invading tribes
and other dangers
the colors were used to heighten that sense
kinda manic and serious
but kinda fun....

and here are some paintings that i will have on display at Don the Beachcomber's this Saturday!

Come on down and spread some Mele Kalikimakian Cheer!
i will have drawings,prints,hand-painted TikiFarm Kinny designed mugs,pitchers and bowls!
AND a bunch of these
10 x 20" paintings
Acrylic and Cel-vinyl on masonite/artboard
wired on the back-they're ready to hang in the walls of YOUR hut!

"Curiosity"

the croc is looking up
but is he eyeing the bird
or the passenger
for his meal today?
Wanted this one to feel very "heat of the day"
hence the vibrating motif on the sun...
very simple,very warm
with a bit of danger
hiding in the cool reassuring blue

"the Island Path"

Wanted these colors very EARTHy
browns and tans and an ashy green for the ocean..
the island path connects the main hut with the far side of the island
and over to the monolithic Ku
a peculiar cycle,but a pattern of activity suggested only by props and a path
no people,just the mind of the viewer themselves
strolling along and admiring the palms and warm breeze..

"Mask Melody"

the olive and the SMALT BLUE
(yes....that's a color tho it would be a great name for a beer!)
are ignited by the tension between the cream and the black
keeping with the whole favorite,split the figure and alternate colors spiel
this one turned out fun and the masks really jump around
as they react to the color battle contained within!

"Sleeping island"

Very happy how this one turned out...
it's not only the occupants
but the ENTIRE ISLAND that is asleep!
the aqua waves gently lapping and the palms shushing each other in the moonlight
the neutral tone adds a forced lighting that was reinforced in the palm fronds to give it
a dramatic "up"lighting/Tikibar-ish lighting effect...
add that to the calm tones
and it forces just a small air of mystery to the piece....
i like it
it made me smile when i finished it....
what a joyous life doing this ....

"the Bleached Palm"

this one started as an Alex Steinweiss color study but slightly PUMPED UP!
the white palm trunk came as a happy accident afterthought
an acciforeafterthought?
the cracked skull in the Ancestor figure's grasp
can be defined either as a cherished chieftan slain in battle
or a rival chieftan... a warning...
the unreal white of the palm echoes the skull's importance
like a wave emanating from it...

"the Hungry Cannibals"

a revisit to a earlier theme..the stacked and cramprd totem with a sight gag
i think the gag here is in the implied hunger
that the title reveals....all uncomfortable
and slatherin and such...
the aqua/raw umber/white combo was JUST enough...

"the River Totem"

a revisitation of a beloved theme
croc and bird
but with some Easter egg colors (purple/hot pink-magenta)
tempered by an olive and acidic yellow and a nice warm brown
tie it all together with some cream and black and YAY!
a riverbank totem
perhaps near an area where canoes slide off into the magical waters...

"Tribal Trio"

another crazy colorway that i riffed from Mr. Steinweiss
and just AMPED a bit for Lil Bits and giggles
(there was a Rick and Morty reference in there,for all the cool kids)

"Maori Totem"

Another steroid Steinweiss colorway
(the guy is a COLOR GENIUS!)
in fact last Tiki Oasis,i was chattin with the esteemed D. Yaniger
and we talked a bit about this masterful designer and colorist!
Alex Steinweiss...check him out!
Always research old artists and designers
they leave things for the world
and lil secret things for us artists dialed in
there is so much to learn,young grasshoppers
Never Stop!
Anyways.. Grey,light mustard yellow,Burgundy,White and Black
Who'd of Thunk?
to quote that genius sculptor Squid...
so leap into the mist of uncertainty
a beautiful painting may step out from that fog of experiment!

"Night of the Volcano"

An attempt to capture some of the eleents of "the Island path"
but with LAVA! Dunno why the Lono fellow is holding a fish
but the red in him is the perfect balance to the flowing molten island next door...

Well...that;s it.. I'm tapped out
work tomorrow...
Good night dear ohana
Hope you enjoy these offerings
and they make you Smile!

www.kinnyruzic.com after all these years I clicked here and found so much art that I'm dumbstruck.

I clicked randomly and !!! found art I didn't know you had ever done. Blush.

I'm in love with the "River Totem". I can't get enough of your birds. I couldn't figure out how to order a print.

HELP. Wendy
