I found this black velvet and know absolutely nothing about it other than it has a tear, it's filthy, the frame is jacked up and I think it's gorgeous... does anyone have any info? or is it just a kids art project? I want to know it's ok to try to make it look good... the picture is awesome... it truly is a filthy dirty mess in person.

couple problems with your velvet painting.

one, certain people here don't consider that painting "tiki", so don't expect to much help. So help identifying it may not happen.

two, years ago I spoke and did a deal with the super nice people that ran/run the black velvet museum. After the deal, I asked about some hibiscus paintings I have. They explained one of the biggest problems with black velvet art is that most is done by street painters and often in foreign countries. These artists are about making money, tourism, quick street sales, often they don't sign them, and very little is known about them. Outside of the famous ones, nobody really keeps track of these artists.

All that matters is YOU like it. Hang it up and Enjoy it man.....

ErichTroudt gave you the best answer I think you will get, many of these
simple works came from Vietnam & other Asian countries
and are exactly that, cheap tourist art.

That said, I would never advocate the disfiguring or destruction of any art
no matter how amateurish that work may be, you like it and you should enjoy it
there should also be no problem putting it in another frame that matches your taste.

I think it's pretty cool, I realize it's not exactly "tiki" but it is worthy of saving if I can. I'm not here to debate or inflame anyone's sense of authenticity. I just wanted to see if I could dig up some info. I appreciate the help.

Yes I agree, and I should have posted this in Beyond Tiki to begin with... If a moderator could move this it would be muchly appreciated. Mahalo!

Unfortunately Tiki Central is not designed to allow the splitting and merging of topics. You can bet though that if it was, I'd have a lot more work to do!

Haka, I certainly appreciate the effort you and the other moderators put forth-this is a very enjoyable and educational site.

Okay, let me start by saying...I know this isn't "tiki", but I can't figure out what culture it is....

Doesn't seem to be quite right for Japan Noh, the old korean stuff usually have big teeth....

The bird on his head has me totally stumped.....

My buddy owns it, wants help identifying it....I know some of you study other cultures....

Any ideas?
