Exhibition: Oct 6-29
Book release & signing party
Friday, October 6, 8-11 PM
With Otto Von Stroheim, Sven Kirsten
& over 30 of Today’s Top Tiki Artists
The Art of Tiki is published in conjunction with the 21st Anniversary Tiki Art Exhibition curated by Otto Von Stroheim at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles.
The Art of Tiki is a passionate study of the Tiki idol as an art form. For the first time, contemporary Tiki art is united and presented equally with what inspired it; original mid-century Polynesian pop. Sven Kirsten combines his firsthand experiences in exploring the birth of Tiki style with his intimate knowledge of the Tiki Revival, painting a vivid, visually arresting portrait of a unique, always new art genre.
The Art of Tiki is written by Otto von Stroheim, Sven Kirsten, and Jordan Reicheck, with Introduction by Shag.
