Hello everybody, I am pretty new to this site and very impressed with the amount of art, communication and information on this here place. I 've been diggin' polynesian pop and oceanic art since I can remember but I have full embraced my passion for it only for a few years (finally pushing art school teachings of pop is bad outta my head) I am definitely more comfortable with a brush, but recently I picked up a chisel and mallet and began carving. I will post my experiments soon, but here a few paintings, please let me know what you think.
Mahalo and bright moments,
Wushu

this my Ki'i akua of Willendorf done with charcoal, acrylics and spray paint 37.5" x 48"


Rock-A-Hula Baby same stats and MO as above


Kava Kava Man charcoal and acrylic on found wood about 12" x 30"

Welcome aboard Wushu,
Nice work. I like the rough, vernacular style of your backgrounds. Especially on the Rock-A-Hula gal.
Aloha,
