ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
"Beware, TALES FROM THE TIKI LOUNGE is coming!"

WHAT? -"Tales From The Tiki Lounge" - that's the name of the upcoming tiki art show.

WHERE? - The "La Luz de Jesus" Gallery. 4633 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90027 (323) 666-7667.

WHEN? - July, 6th 2012, opening night is 8-11 PM. Show runs July 6 - July 29

WHAT WILL THAT LOOK LIKE?

Congrat's to the Gallery for having you. Your Art and style have improved every year since I started following you.
This is THE gallery to be seen in, with a rich history of very well known low brow artist of our generation sprouting from.

Congrats

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Show Announcement: "TALES FROM THE TIKI LOUNGE is coming!"

WHAT? -"Tales From The Tiki Lounge" - that's the name of my upcoming tiki art show.

ER, WHAT?: I know... here's some more info. I was asked by the gallery for a "Show Statement". I guess it's best to share it here with the Tiki Tribe first. This is where I started posting my tiki art years ago, just as I was first putting paint brush to canvas - you can see all my work, and my mistakes, from then till now over in the "Creating Tiki" forum. The support from tiki-fans, and the inspiration from fellow artists, I got here on Tiki Central helped me to fight through my self doubt as an artist. I don't think I'd be doing Tiki Art if it wasn't for TC. (Especially, for a few of "Little Lost Tiki" or "LLT" aka Ken Ruzic's really great smart funny and inspiring e-mails! He's amazing. If we are a cyber-space-international-spanning-modern-day "Tiki Tribe" then Ken Ruzic must be one of our Big Kahuna/witch doctor/wizard/high priests. Anywho, here goes the STATEMENT...

SHOW STATEMENT:
"Tales from the Tiki Lounge" is the rarest, hardest to find, and most collectible, Pulp-Adventure publication never made. It existed only in the Mai-Tai light Zone of Brad (Tiki Shark) Parker's imagination. These paintings are the cover-art of the most desired and sought after issues. So precious that they are nearly beyond price, and believability.

WHAT WILL THAT LOOK LIKE?

"Hula Baby"
24" by 30", Acrylic on canvas.

WHERE? - The "La Luz de Jesus" Gallery. 4633 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90027 (323) 666-7667.

WHEN? - July, 6th 2012, opening night is 8-11 PM. Show runs July 6 - July 29

WHO? - Brad (Tiki Shark) Parker; award winning tiki artist

WHY? - The "La Luz de Jesus" Gallery is known as the world famous birth place of the low-brow art movement. It's owner, Billy Shire, is reputed for discovering artists with merit. The artist, Brad Parker, has this vivid inner vision of the show's theme; "Tiki-Pulp" which promises to be full of mind-expanding, imagination-feeding, gourmet-pupu, eye treats.

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
LLT - Big Mahalos! You R my inspiration!
forgotten tikiman- Thanx! I know I drift a little bit away from mainstream "tiki" into the "Mai-Tai light Zone", and into things that may seem "Lurid", and I really appreciate the folks who are willing to come along.
Here's a sneak peek of what I'm experimenting on - presentation for the show at La Luz de Jesus gallery. Here is one of the more successful experiments I hope will be part of the show. It would hang along side the original "Hawaiian Eye" painting.

"Tales From the Tiki Lounge #3: Hawaiian Eye"
12 1/2" x 18"
Gallery wrapped giclee on canvas.

Art Show Details
July, 6th 2012, opening night is 8-11 PM.
Show runs July 6 - July 29
