ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

New news!

"Hawaiian Eye"
Acrylic on canvas 20" x 24"
Part of the "Tales from the Tiki Lounge" art show at "La luz de Jesus" gallery, July 6th - July 29th...
http://www.laluzdejesus.com/shows/2012/Parker/TikiShark2012.htm

Has been awarded entry into "SPECTRUM 19: The Years Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art"

I thrilled and excited to be spreading our Tiki Culture through this venue.
The original painting of "Hawaiian Eye" will be on display in my "Tales from the Tiki Lounge" art show this July 6th to July 29th, at the Los Angeles "La luz de Jesus Gallery", Opening night is July 6th. So you can give it an eye ball in person there. Afterward it is being shipped to the art patron who bought it. (a very nice gentleman who is, appropriately enough, a law enforcement officer who has a taste for tiki and skulls) Spectrum 19 books will be on sale at all major book stores Nov 2012.
ALOHA!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Well, it's May 1st!
The Big art show is one month closer!
The Big art show is one day closer!
EEK! I gotta say I'm a bit nervous. As Grammy tiki-shark used to day "I'm as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of Rocking chairs!"

In case you have a copy of the latest "TIKI MAGAZINE" around, please take a look at page 43!
Here's my swanky ad for the show. In which, I made a MISTAKE! (Double EEK! Just in case I wasn't nervous enough already...) It says opening night is Friday July 29th. It's not. Opening night is Friday July 6th: the first day the show opens. Pretty much everyone I freaked out about this to said, "Don't worry! We're LA art folks, we are all swanky hipsters and know stuff like openings are always on opening night."

Nick Camera, the big Kahuna and editor of TIKI MAGAZINE also did a really great write up about the show on page 48...

... & page 49. Nick got the opening night correct in the write up.
THANKS NICK! U da' BEST! Looks bee-u-tee-full!

So, my fellow tiki tribe hipsters, forgive the miss-information. My bad. Hope to see you all on Friday July 6th for the opening of...

"TALES FROM THE TIKI LOUNGE! The Lurid Art Of Brad Tiki-shark Parker"!

Big aloha!
Brad tiki-shark Parker

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Please check out the new pieces being added, one by one as I finish them for the big art show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery.
http://www.laluzdejesus.com/shows/2012/Parker/TikiShark2012.htm
I just put up "Zombie Tiki Girl"

Mahalo and Aloha, from a rainy "aloha" friday night here on the Big island. (Wow, it's really coming down out side!) And I live on the dry side, hate to see how soggy Puna (over on da' the wet side of the island) must be by now!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
(Tobunga- this ones for you brother!)

"Tiki VS Godzilla"
24" x 30"
Acrylic on canvas
to appear in the art show" "Tales from the Tiki Lounge"
at "La Luz de Jesus Gallery" -opening night is July 6th.
Well, it's about done. I just saw a few details I forgot. Like the things that stick out of the middle of exotic flowers and little things like that, but other than that I think it's done! (WHEW!)

She turned out as one darned interesting looking tourist... this idea started as a riff on that vintage "Hawaiiana" image that was popular in the 40's, of a girl in a grass skirt on the beach strumming a ukelele.

Here's a better look-see at TIKI VS GODZILLA. The Big G was a lot of fun to paint. Took a few tries befroe I got the right "look" of the version I was painting - the extra long back finned "mean" looking Godzilla from "Godzilla 2000". Then I threw in some of the more fantastic effects of his "melt down" from the movie "Godzilla VS Destroyah"... (theres lots of great visual stuff in that epic everything-blows-up-real-good-ultra-puppet-show)

So just a few touches left. Then It's done and will be posted up on the La Luz De Jesus web site for SALE at the big ART Show on July 6th. If you're in LA, drop in and give it a gander! I hope to see some Tiki Tribe there! (PLEASE!)
(Did I mention the nightmare I keep have about having this art show and no one shows up, and I'm standing in an empty La Luz gallery wearing only my Spiderman under-pants.)

Check out show details here...

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Something else has pre-sold before the Tiki-art show!

Here's a friendly reminder about my up-coming "Tales from the Tiki Lounge" art show this July 6th to July 29th, at the Los Angeles "La luz de Jesus Gallery", Opening night is July 6th - hope to see you there!
Well, another piece has pre-sold! While in the care of the Wyland Kona Ocean front Gallery here in Hawaii, "Secret Cove" has been purchased. It will still show at the gallery in LA - but will sport a "RED DOT" marking it as SOLD.

The "Giclee" on canvas "cover" of the "Tales from the Tiki Lounge" version of "Secret Cove" is still up for grabs. However, most of the originals, and several of the giclees are SOLD... so if you have your eye on buying a piece from this show, it might be a good idea not to wait too much longer...

IF you want to see info on the "La Luz de Jesus Gallery" Show give this link a try:

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
ALOHA TIKI TRIBE! (echos off green volcanic cliffs and jungle mountains that look like giant skulls with water falls leaping out of their gaping maws)

Well, the biggest art show I've ever been asked to do is coming up ( ...and boy am I nervous! As grammy tiki-shark used to say I'm as nervous "as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs!")

The Show is called "TALES FROM THE TIKI LOUNGE" - and features my newest body of work. All published in a very rare and highly collectable old Pulp Tiki-Adventure magazine back in 1959 ( but- published only in the Mai-Tai Light Zone of my imagination!)

The show is going to be this July (2012) in Los Angles at the world famous birth place of Low-Brow Art: "La Luz de Jesus" Gallery. Here's a link to their web site with some of the work that you will see at da' show:
http://www.laluzdejesus.com/shows/2012/Parker/TikiShark2012.htm

"Tales From the Tiki Lounge - the Secret Cove Issue"
Giclee on canvas
signed, Limited edition of 1 of 1

Here is a full page as in "Hi Fructose - the counter culture Art Magazine"
Hope you can make it !
Big Aloha
