Inspired by mid-century modern themes and influenced by the California Tiki style (at once modern, primitive and cartoonish), BOSKO has used the skills developed, since graduating from the ART CENTER COLLEGE OF DESIGN in Pasadena, to produce an absolutely beautiful collection of Tiki poles, ceramic Tiki mugs and incredible Tiki Wall hangings as well as Wall Art inspired heavily by the Mid-Century influences we have all come to love here in Palm Springs. This show will feature amazing wall pieces that reflect the spirit of the desert (both in Palm Springs and Las Vegas) and that capture the essence of MODERN DESERT LIVING. BOSKO will be in attendance to meet you, so please feel free to go up to him and say hello.
About KRK Ryden:
KRK has put together an amazing gallery of works for this show that display his influences from over the years. Works in this show feature mid-century inspired imagery, iconic people & other wild objects!
KRK has designed work for the band DEVO and worked on countless other projects through his legendary design company KEYTH RYDEN KREATIONS. There is a strong mid-century influence in his work and, although strongly influenced by comic design and cartoon imagery, KRK's work is not flat like that of Lichtenstein and includes wild icons, people and objects. The work of KRK truly has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
For a complete (and I do mean complete) biography on KRK Ryden, go to his web site at http://www.krkland.com and click through it. The web site will not dissappoint.
