July 4 - 27, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, July 4th, 8-11 PM

Brad "Tiki Shark" Parker "Red Tiki Lounge"
Brad "Tiki Shark" Parker paints "Low Brow Art" about Modern Tiki Culture. He does so from the most remote land mass in the world: the Big Island of Hawaii. "When you live on an active volcano, you learn to make sacrifices." The artist doesn't mean throwing virgins into the volcano, but rather his move from the fast lane of Hollywood to the slower pace of the small seaside town of Kailua-Kona. In doing so, Brad quickly became the king of Polynesian Pop Art, and his work is routinely selected by Hawaiian officials to represent Tiki culture to the world. His art is a staple in the surf world, where he's partnered with Body Glove, and he's had sell-out exhibitions in Los Angeles, Honolulu, and Dubai.

Parker's Red Tiki Lounge combines the paint stroke of old Flemish masters with counter culture subject matter from a childhood of adoring comic books, cartoons, and Universal Monster movies. This show features skate decks, beach towels, pencil sketches and paintings, and we'll be celebrating July 4th with BBQ and a live band. Brad will be present at his opening reception to sign cards, calendars and prints.


Damian Fulton "Rad!"
July 4 - 27, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, July 4th, 8-11 PM

Before the X Games, GoPro videos, and energy drinks, a kid with an over-productive Rad gland virtually invented extreme sports. 35 years ago Radical Rick first raged through the pages of BMX Plus! Magazine and launched the career of Artist Damian Fulton. Since then Radical Rick has appeared in over 150 comic episodes, on T-shirts and posters, more than a few tattooed body parts, and continues to influence artists today.

To commemorate Radical Rick's 35th anniversary,"Rad!" brings to La Luz de Jesus gallery the largest collection of original Radical Rick artwork ever assembled, featuring original paintings, magazine covers, and beautiful water colored story pages from the artist's personal collection. "Rad!" also includes new, never seen before artwork painted just for this exhibit.

Influenced by Zap Comix, motorcycles and hot rods, horror movies, classic cartoons, and a dose of Mad Magazine, Damian Fulton still paints today and his "Urban Surf" art is exhibited around the world.

JOIN US ON FOR THE OPENING ON JULY 4TH FEATURING:
BACKYARD BBQ
Live performance by THE INSECT SURFERS at 9 PM
The planet's longest running modern surf band!
Rum drinks courtesy of SAMMY'S BEACH BAR RUM!

Sounds like fun, I'll be there.

Tiki Ti was open on the 4th of July a couple years ago, so I'm hoping yes!
