10/6: 21st Anniversary Art of Tiki Show and Book Release


21st Anniversary Art of Tiki Show
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.

DJs Mike and Anja Stax
Emcee: Otto von Stroheim
Tickets available here or at the door
Huge Dance Floor, Full Bar and BBQ on the back porch!

The Standells
The Standells are a cornerstone of 1960s garage with their hits “Dirty Water” and “Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White” But their crowning glory for the L.A. rock n roll scene was their opening scene footage and soundtrack work for the B-movie quasi documentary “Riot on the Sunset Strip”

LOVE Revisited
Love was the biggest, most respected band on the L.A. club scene at the zenith of that creative musical explosion in 1966. For example, even though The Doors had a number one hit record they continued to be the opening band for Love in Los Angeles.

Original lead guitarist Johnny Echols is supported by seasoned Baby Lemonade crew who backed Arthur Lee.

The Loons
Local luminaries The Loons include Mike Stax, former member of The Tell-Tale Hearts and founder of Ugly Things magazine, and Anja, former member of London garage Go Go band The Diaboliks and current member of 60s girl group The Rosalyns. The Loons are all set to launch their fourth album this summer.
