okay, I'm starting this thread to post a little about the different cool artists out there that may or may not be Tiki. Is pop artists the right title? I'm not sure, I'm not a huge collector.

Anyway, I'll start off with a link to an artist a friend of mine recently turned me on to who has an amazingly simple style; very Mary Blair inspired, if you ask me:

Her name is Kristen Ulve.:

Gallery:

Homepage:

My favorite:

Great topic!

I really like Liz Mcgrath's work:

http://www.lizmcgrath.com

My favorite is:
http://www.elizabethmcgrath.com/hula.html

because it combines hula and sideshow imagery -- two great tastes that taste great together!

And while we are on the subject, I would be remiss if I didn't mention Johnny Meah, the last living master sideshow banner artist. I helped him with his website, so there's a little self interest here, but if you dig sideshow stuff, you will really love the site:

I dig "The Pizz"! His art is ultra low brow and can tend towards dark but in only a way that a brilliant run-a-muck brain can put forth. He's a good and interesting bro and he's a major tiki collector! He's got piles upon piles of tiki sketches - he's got renderings of an ultra funky hip tiki treehouse, complete with hidden entrances, a Moai garage door and all kinds o' cool sheit!

After tiki I got into the art scene and started reading Juxtapoz.

Two artist's works that I like is Camille Rose @
http://www.camillerosegarcia.com/.

And maybe my favorite painter Jeff Soto @ jeffsoto.com
He use 50s SciFi and 70s porn. Cattuses, robots, and paint-rollors

Here's some I like:

http://www.dankrall.com/index.html



This is a really fun one - kids' drawings turned into paintings:
http://www.themonsterengine.com/art.html
(he has abook for sale that's really great)


And of course, there's nothing like The Folk Art of Buddy Ebsen:
http://www.buddyebsen.com/buddyart.htm



See? I told you there was nothing like it.

I like the art of Vladimir Kush. Coincidentally, I first discovered his work in an art gallery in Muai on my honeymoon.

Dave Warnke is great! My wife actually surprised me with a messenger bag that features his artwork and it is awesome! I guess I'll add the only artist I know personally and his work isn't exactly "paint on canvas" but he's talented nonetheless...

Brandon Bird.

This guy is whact. I like this piece in particular because it doesn't resort to pop-referencing. Look at his galleries and you'll see what I'm talking about. They're hilarious, but not timeless... like "Bad Day on the High Sea" here.

I liked Lazy Sunday Afternoon. The Optical illusion painting above here and under my last post is truly amazing and thought provoking.
