ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Seems like that was popular, however I dug through my sketch book and found even better pieces for the folks who asked to purchase the skull eyed tiki sketch, so I sold a bunch of sketches but... this one's still up for grabs!

Original Pencil Sketch
$50
plus $5 S&H to the Mainland
ALOHA and Mahalo~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

"Tiki VS Godzilla"
24" x 30"
Original Acrylic on Canvas
by Brad "Tiki-Shark" Parker

Hey,know what? There is a big summer block-buster movie coming out called "Pacific Rim" by my favorite director Guillermo del Toro. It's about giant monsters rising out of the Pacific Ocean and being fought off by Giant Robots -But, hey, Why wait till summer? Here's the swanky TIKI-Culture version of that!

When Everyone's favorite Pacific-Ocean-Atomic-bomb-testing-Radioactive-kaiju-super-sized-lizard "Godzilla" threatens true paradise on earth: Hawaii, who can save us but... "TIKI" - the Guardian of Waikiki and swanky Polynesian-pop culture!

Enjoy this truly epic battle via an original piece of Brad "Tiki-Shark" Parker Tiki-Art ...in your very own Home Tiki-Bar!!

$3,500.00 Plus S&H
That's right, it's not the price you'd pay for this painting in an Art Gallery (imagine about double to triple the $) - this is the "Tiki-Central Special Price" only available right here- direct from the Tiki-Shark art Studio!
I take pay pal
Personal message me
There is only one original, so it's first come first serve.

Big Mahalo and ALOHA!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
I have been asked to open up my sketch books and let the rough sketches and studies for paintings go up for public consumption. Hey, better on the walls of your home tiki bar then in the pages of an old forgotten sketch book. Some sketches that are still waiting to become paintings I am keeping for now, but some others are ready to go out into the world. Some tiki tribe folks have told me the sketches have become their favorite parts of their collections...so, gosh, I am thrilled to spread some Tiki Art to da' Tiki Tribe!

It's all fine and Good to have big ol' swanky acrylic paintings for thousands of dollars and beautiful giclee art prints on canvas or paper for hundreds of dollars, but what about the raw art that no one usually sees?
The sketches?! - lets say that they go for about $50 a pop?
Well... lets take a look and see what we got tonight?

This is a great little sketch that became the painting "Mister Mai Tai"!
$50 plus $5 S&H to the mainland, $10 for overseas.
I take pay pal.
If you dig it, please personal message me. There is only one, so first come first serve...
Big Mahalo and Big ALOHA!
BP~

If it is still available, I'll gladly unleash PayPal and take it off your hands. You had me at hibiscus-shaped clouds and I could always stand a bit more lurid-ness about the house.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

"The Body Glove Sea Creature"
24" x 30"
acrylic in canvas
(for price contact info @tikishark.com)

Here's a closer look at the main feature - the creature!

giclee prints on canvas and paper will be up for sale quickly through me or
The Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery
75-5770 Alii Dr

Phone – (808) 334-0037
Toll Free – (888) 435-6612
Email –
artexpert@hawaii.rr.com


this painting was inspired by a short surf film by Greg Browning at Body Glove you can see that here:
http://surf.transworld.net/1000151561/videos/imaginarium-body-gloves-the-disappearance/
It then in turn inspired a set of three tiki mugs - that will be made by tiki farm and out later this year.
Then, giclee #1 of 10 is already spoken for and set to hang in the Body Glove HQ. (maybe in Greg's office?)
Then there's gonna be a larger film project - much being talked about and might already be in the works, (still kinda of hush -hush, but I think it's almost done!)
A big mug and movie release party next Oct here in Kailua Kona Hawaii with the director , the owners of Body Glove and Scott Smith (the creature)
plus a special limited edition print to the first 100 mug sets sold.
The original will hang in my 2014 Summer art show at La Luz De Jesus Gallery" in LA.
There will be canvas giclee prints, paper giclee prints...

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

"The Body Glove Sea Creature"
Acrylic on canvas, 24" x 30"
... is SOLD! (within 24 hours of offering) And, I'm happy to say it's going to one of my very favorite and best, long-time, art-patrons & supporters of my work, -and thus into one of the best and most impressive "low-brow" Pop-surreal "Tiki-Art" collections on the West Coast.
Big Thanks and ALOHA and MAHALO to you - (you know who you are) - my first, and long-time, art-patron, who saw that my art was worth purchasing at considerable $$... thus giving me the ability to devote more time to making Tiki-Art! And, now I know it's not going not storage, but is going to be hung in one of my very favorite places I think my art can be hung! Really, this is wonderful, fantastic news, and makes me happy! Perhaps even makes me think I am doing the "right" thing with my life" - that I chose this artist's path... even with all it's rocky uncertain, scary as heck parts, these moments make it worth while!

However, for now, the original painting will stay carefully hung in my swank pad here in Hawaii until it's big public reveal/display at my art show at the world famous "La Luz de Jesus Gallery" in Los Angeles the summer 2014.

A professional scanning will be taken of the original painting and it'll become high end giclees for sale on canvas and paper at:
the Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery
75-5770 Alii Dr
Kailua Kona, HI 96740-1782
Phone – (808) 334-0037
Toll Free – (888) 435-6612
Email –
artexpert@hawaii.rr.com,

The art will also (i hope) become part of the promotion of a new line quick drying surf wear from Body Glove, called "Amphibious"! So, it'll be on board shorts, shirts and who knows all what else.

The painting is the inspiration for a "3 tiki-mug set" coming from Tiki Farm later this year.

The painting itself was inspired by the short surf/monster award winning film made by Greg Browning & John DeTemple & Scott Smith; (who plays the creature) of Body Glove. See the 7 minute film here: "The Disappearance". http://surf.transworld.net/1000151561/videos/imaginarium-body-gloves-the-disappearance/

"The disappearance" short film later went on to win other film fests awards, and Scott has made several appearances as the Creature.

We are planning a big "Tiki-Mug release event on October 24th, here in Kailua-Kona Hawaii. Where we'll have the film makers, plus Scott in full creature suit, a limited edition event poster, and - perhaps - the premier of a full length feature of the Body Glove film "The Disappearance"! Ya' See, it was so well received, that Hollywood stepped up and worked with Greg Browning to make this short into a real deal Film! Just might happen, and just might make it's first showing at this event.
