Aloha Tiki Tribe.
So, I have a big art-show coming up on July 4th in LA at "La luz de Jesus Gallery". Famous for being the birth-place for the "Low-Brow" Art movement started by Robert Williams. This is the biggest most important show of my career thus far. I will be showing 7 paintings. I had planned on more, but this cursed law suit with Cafe Press, (in which they stole my art and was selling it on line), really threw my Artist' focus off - and I found it very hard to work.

Luckily, my Art Agent talked the gallery into showing what else has been happening with my art over the last 2 years as well, so I'll also show Skate Decks & whole Boards w/custom wheels, Boogie Boards, Beach Towels, and such stuff. Should be a nice amount of eye candy. Even several sketches and drawings will be framed and up for sale.

Here's a look at the paintings.


1.) "The Red Tiki Lounge", 24" x 30" Acrylic on canvas.

2.) "The Wanderer", 15" x 30" Acrylic on canvas. A Tiki-Art version of "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" (German: Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer; also known as "Wanderer Above the Mist") a painting composed in 1818 by the German Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich.

3.) "The Body Glove Sea Creature", 24" x 30" Acrylic on Canvas.

4.) "Two Tikis", 18" x 24" , acrylic on canvas

5.) "The Sea Witch", 24" x 30" Acrylic on Canvas.

6.) "Token Tiki on a Sincere-Blue Back-Ground", 24" x 30", acrylic on canvas.

7.) "Vacation Gone Wrong", Acrylic on (distressed) canvas 17" x 27", mounted inside Custom 33" x 26" Bamboo Box Frame, with Black Back ground.

Here's a look at the beach towels:

The Beyond the Reef Beach Towel

The Tiki Cat Beach Towel

The Moon of Manakoora Beach Towel

The Forbidden Island Beach Towel

Many of the paintings have been pre-sold, so call for availability. They have a good supply of beach towels, but the gallery has been steadily selling taking pre-orders of them as well, they even ship over seas. They are going fast, so if you really want one, or a set, contact the gallery now instead of later.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
RE-LISTING!
Post Big 'Ol Art Show at La Luz De Jesus Gallery!
Thank you to every one who made it a smash hit better than my last one. Looks like every piece sold - and one had a bidding WAR! (Jeepers -Creepers!) when a big time low-Brow Art Patron in Europe WANTED a painting that was already SOLD…well, he just said he'd pay a whole bunch more Euros than the first guy paid in green-backs…then, the La Luz curator talks to my Agent…who, of course, sez…"SOLD…again!!" Then, I get to talk to the first buyer - who, luckily, is a real sweat-heart and is very happy that I broke into the European art collector market - and I promise to paint him a new painting with his Comic book Character in it…he loves it! See, he was also one of my first Art mentors, so he gets bragging rights that one of his Art Students is getting collected in swanky places!
(Whew!)
So…. long story longer...
I got invited back in another 2 years to show at "La Luz De Jesus Gallery"! - (The Birth Place of Low-Brow Art!) - ( why 2 years? Well, it takes me dat long to come up with a body of 13 new pieces. And THIS time I'm REALLY gonna learn how to PAINT!)

So I'm in a darned good mood!

Yep. A Happy Tiki Triber!

So…passing the Happy Aloha-Aloha on to you…
I offered this cool drawing up for $250.00, but I just dropped it to $100 ...here on Tiki Central!
Check it out!
