Aloha Tiki Tribe! I was up early...after a night out celebrating my agents' Birthday (the big five Oh, and I don't mean the TV show Hawaii Five O!) So I might have been a little blurry eyed,

...but such nice folks came in to buy a full sized giclee on canvas of "Beyond the Reef" from the Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery - I HAD to stop in and say HEY! (and it helped drag my butt outa' bed and get me to da' Gym...)

..and they bought it from Susan Grimm - the New lady at the Wyland! - I think that was her first Tiki-Shark sale! So, OK, she's new at the Wyland, and new to Low-Brow and Tiki-Art, so I've been sending her all kinda' stuff about Tiki, and Exotica, Low-Brow Art...now she's starting to feel comfortable talking about the Art I do to to folks who come in. This was a big day , and it was good to be there for her too. Great person. And There's always something fun about showing people the world of TIKI-Culture, it's history and music. Cool stuff!

This is such a cool piece, and the Art patrons who bought it are huge Disney fans and totally caught the Pirates vibe from it. Saw it. Went away... couldn't stop thinking about it... and came back. But, what got 'em in the door was they wanted the TIKI mugs! What's funny is, The fella grew up here, has been by this gallery a million times, but never saw anything to make him go in...then saw teh tiki-mugs through the window! (Ah, tiki-mugs, how many of us know that as the gate-way to Tiki-Culture!) BIG ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
I don't know if I let you all know, but "MahaloTiki" is my mainland Rep now... I think if you go to Tiki Oasis, he will have some Brad Tiki-Shark Parker swag~! Please take a look at his web site for ordering Tiki-Shark art, now you won't have to pay for shipping from Hawaii! Check it out at
http://www.mahalotiki.com or https://www.facebook.com/tikisharkarthawaii & give him/me a "like" ... However, if you are on the Big Island, and can't make it to Tiki Oasis, I'll see you at the Mai Tai Fest at the Royal Kona Resort Aug 17th! (11:00 AM....)

I did a study for the tiki in the painting I'm working on...

Just to make sure I had a cool tiki design. It's very important to me to make it look "tiki-culture right", note: not historical Hawaiian Culture, but TIKI-Culture. Not too goofy, and thus dis respectful ~(I live on a active volcanic island where humans were sacrificed to these wooden idols - best to be respectful and full of as much Aloha as ya' can.)~ Not too evil. A bit happy is good, but sort of inscrutable.

"The Red Tiki"
(study for painting)
"Ink & Acrylic illustration" on heavy paper,
9" x 12"

all done! Back to the canvas! Hey, if you really dig this one-of-a-kind original art, take a look over in the Tiki Marketplace.
- I take pay Pal. Personal message me.

Ultra-Swanky Aloha!
Brad (tiki-shark) Parker

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
The "Red Tiki" was very popular. Several folks asked about it, and when it came down to buying, two people payed via pay pal. Now, one had asked , and one and just acted. It was pretty close, but one was first. So they do get "The Red Tiki". However, the art patrons who paid second, well, I just didn't have the heart to say "no Tiki-Art for you" to them. I know they have a very nice collection, and a great place for a piece - and if I just happened to use some "Green" on the shadows of a new "Red Tiki" study, boy it would match this killer Big Toe piece they have that has a lot of Green in it. I'm also hand tinting 2 very rare "odd" numbered wood block prints green as well - what a cool chance to make a beautiful part of a unique Tiki-Art collection! These kinds of things mean a lot to me as an artist, so I asked them if they wanted, I would do a "Green" tiki for them to go along with the prints. So... here we go. One more pass over the "RED TIKI" study for this very important painting. This "Red Tiki Study" will have some cool green shadows...












Now, please, I do very much appreciate the offers to purchase my work, it really is an amazing thing to have folks want your tiki art in their homes... However, this study is already sold. And, I really do think, for now ay least, I'm gonna' get back to the canvas after this study. If you like, we can talk about purchase of the painting if anyone is interested. Just e-mail my art agent at
info@tikishark.com. ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY!
Well, I'm back from my trip to the mainland. (Whew! A Tiki-artist can forget that there's so many people in the world and all driving on the freakin' free-way at the same Freakin' Time!!! )
I did a little business with Body Glove about...

...the Body Glove Sea Creature, and Tiki-Mugs...

...and Body Glove Sea Creature Towels

...and Body Glove Sea Creature Art Prints... All came out great and ready for sale in October...

...but you can talk to Mahalo Tiki If you'd like to pre-order any of those goodies!
http://www.mahalotiki.com
We were celebrating my trusty Art Agent's 50th Birthday! So we went on to the number one party place in da' WORLD!...
...(Shudder!) No, not here... This poor ruin was on the way to...

... Here! ...after much frolicking and frivolity at da, Fabulous Flamingo in Vegas! I'm glad to be getting back to the small sea-side town on an active volcanic island where it's nice and quiet.

Had some Art sales waiting for me at the local Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery (Big Mahalo To All the Fine Folks there!) http://www.wylandbigisland.com

...and I had a little time to start work again on my Tiki color-study for my current painting.
Have a Great Week End!

ALOHA!
