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, while strange tropical birds make strange calls in the dark green mysterious regions of the inner island)
The Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery was the only gallery on the Big Island that took a chance and carried my "low-brow" art when most galleries here could not be bothered. It was a up hill fight to get "tiki-art" shown here in Hawaii! Very strange, but most galleries have a tunnel vision of what tourists will buy, and do not like taking a chance on anything that has not already sold for the last 20 years.
I was told flat out that "TIKI" was dead and would not sell in Hawaii. (can you even grasp what a backward mind set that is?)
I'm glad to say the Wyland Kona gallery has proven that is not true. I started on a small area on a wall in the middle of the gallery, then got moved to the front, then moved to the front window area. Now I'm one of the most displayed artists (next to the big guy - Wyland - in the gallery. BIG thanks to owner Mark Hanna and his sales team for taking a chance on me and my "weirdo-low-brow poly-pop-surreal art".
