THANKS Atomic Tiki Punk.

Well, the big Tiki clock in the sky is ticking.
September 25th is getting closer.
I'm making art.
I will have ten pieces at this show. (fingers crossed)
Many will be original paintings.
Some will be "artist proofs" limited editions - on canvas, retouched.
Here is one of the original paintings that will be there:

"Faster Than Disaster"

30" x 24"
Acrylic on canvas

We'll have food and drinks and dancing girls! Er... ok, some lovely young ladies will be serving drinks and pupus, they may or may not dance while they are doing so. That's up to them.
Hope you to see you there!

little lost tiki - Okay, maybe dancing girls. Well, maybe not. However, my gorgeous niece from Canada is going to come down to help out, perhaps strolling around in her swanky aura of dream-like beauty serving refreshments on a silver platter.... (but her new husband will be there too... minding da' door, he'll be da' gorilla sporting a zoot-suit, and packing a black-jack, jus' so's none o' you mooks get outa. line, ya' know? Dis' is a classy joint we're talkin' about here.)

So the theme of the show (or my part of it) is this:
10 pieces. All original paintings, or full sized giclees on canvas with artist remarks (making them one of a kind pieces and as close to seeing the original as possible).
PLUS, 10 "Vintage" framed covers of "Tales From The Tiki Lounge".
It'll be Issues 1 through 10.
Get what I'm saying?

"Faster Than Disaster" - Original painting
30" x 24" Acrylic on Canvas

(Vintage) "Tales From the Tiki Lounge #1, featuring "Faster Than Disaster" on the cover.
11" x 8" Giclee on paper

Should be an interesting juxtaposition of art and what happens to said art after it is published.

Scribble it down on your calendars... September 25th 2010!
See you there!
ALOHA!
Brad~

Aloha tiki Tribe!
The day of the big show is inching closer. The "Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center" has created their promo invitation.

"Hey kids, can you pick out the "Low Brow" artist?

I'm very honored to be given top billing. Hope to see some Tiki folks there - I'm making up a special "Voo Doo" punch that will be served along with the usual swank beverages and food the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center serves during openings.

Big Aloha!
Brad~

A L O H A Tiki Tribe!

So, the BIG art show is coming up - Sept 25th. S A T U R D A Y Opening night 7 to 9 PM.
Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center.
1560 Manhattan Beach Boulevard
Manhattan Beach, California 90266 (310) 802-5440
Near the waves in the ol' south bay!
Along with original paintings for sale, I will be offering some very high end giclees on canvas - These are limited editions. They are hand retouched by me, are the same size as the originals, and look as great as the originals! (well, almost, but a darned beautiful job of reproduction.

Please check out this link to a listing of the work by La Luz de Jesus Gallery, who are being so kind as to help promote the show.
http://www.laluzdejesus.com/shows/2010/Tiki-Shark/Parker2010.htm

In this wacky economic time, I know some Tiki Tribe art patrons are looking to enhance the walls of their tiki huts with out spending a few thousand clams. So... I will also have some giclee on PAPER art prints at a lesser price for those art patrons seeking to pay more around $100 instead of ...well, a few thousand clams. All my giclee art prints are made at Honu editions here on the Big Island of Hawaii - their expert work hangs in every local museum and swank hotel lobby. Simply, they are the best on the Big Island.

("Monsters on Vacation" - one of the art prints that will be offered for sale.)
I'll be there opening night to sign and personalize all art prints bought. This will also save you those pesky shipping costs from Hawaii when folks buy my art prints on line. I'll have a limited supply with me, so if you come early, you'll more likely be able to find the art print on paper you're looking for.

So check out the original art - the high end giclees on canvas, - and the beautiful giclees on paper.

B I G A L O H A !
Hope to see you there!

A L O H A Tiki Tribe!

Whew, was up till 2 AM... not drinking...painting! I finished the huge epic sunken pirate-ship-and-tiki painting!!!!
It'll be on display at the show in Sept.

Am I going to post a big fat photo of the finished painting that took me 3 plus months to paint? No. I'm going to be a total creep and keep it secret till OPENING NIGHT Sept 25th! So you can come on down and gawk at it in person, along with a whole bunch of other originals, some high end giclees , and even some very reasonable priced giclees on paper - all for sale, and which I will personalize to you if you so wish.
Like what you ask? Well check it out here:

http://www.laluzdejesus.com/shows/2010/Tiki-Shark/Parker2010.htm

The Pirate Ship is not listed on the La Luz de Jesus Gallery site as it wasn't done yet, and it's already sold to a secret collector anyways. Now, I'm gonna try to crank out two smaller "Monsters on Vacation" pieces so I can have a whole block of 6 of them at the show..... (I hope. Pass the Red Bull please!)

But come on down and take a peep at da art, and at me (yeash!) in person, before it is swept away into a secret collection never to shown to the public ever ever ever again and I am deported back to the Big Island.

MAHALO!

I am getting really motivated to try and swing by after hearing you on Cocktail Nation. Also i am hoping to bring my daughter who is an espiring artist and LOVES the Universal Monsters and I hope to show her smoth of the prints up close.

Thanks for droping this show in MB, makes it pretty hard to say 'it is too far away'.

Now if I can just get my hands on the check book, hmmmmmm.......

A L O H A T I K I T R I B E ! !
count down...18 days till the art show!

little lost tiki - Thanks! U is so Right! Takes some of the sweating off!
Chippy ~ Wow, I would be honored! Hope u can bring your daughter- she's into the Universal Monsters? Sounds like a very Cool Kid U got there, raised by parents who knew what pop culture to expose her to.
TIKI-RAY~ Thanks! I look forward to seeing you!

So, as you might know, I sponsor the pod cast "The Cocktail Nation" hosted by Koop Kooper. Koop is a charming suave retro cat who lives in an amazingly fabulous penthouse over looking Sydney. It is my ardent goal to one day be as cool as Koop. To that end, I've been (mostly with the help of my partner Abbas) creating a ever more SWANK life style and living / working space. I think I've made alot of progress in progressing from some of the strange digs I occupied in Hollywood and Venice to the "Swank High House in the Mist" over looking Kailua-Kona bay where I now dwell and paint.

I guess all these efforts are starting to pay off a bit because today some nice folks from "In Home Magazine" - the Sunday Supplement of West Hawaii today" came by to photograph my pad. I said yes to the interview after I saw they did a piece on Dug Miller's "House of Tiki" which I found out is in my new neighborhood.

Here is the shot set up for the "Jungle Room chair"

Here editor Karen Anderson is over seeing the shot of "Diga Diga Doo" - the mugs and the print.

This is my art room - the work table and the "head chopper" axe on the wall are movie props I designed for the horror flick - "Jeepers Creepers". (shh! Don't tell Universal, I hear they have been searching for these rare pieces for years now!)

I have no idea how it will look published, but I think I'll be in the Halloween issue next month. I'll be sure to post then. Halloween is swank, right?

Big ALOHA!
Brad~
