- Full Description
A passionate study of the Tiki idol as an art form and pop culture. For the first time, contemporary and 1970s Tiki art is presented equally with what inspired it, beginning in the mid-1950s. The current revival was led by artists including Mark Ryden, Ken Ruzic, Mary Fleener, Mookie Sato and Shag--their post-2000s work and much more is covered. Author Sven Kirsten offers first-hand experiences in exploring the birth of Tiki style with intimate knowledge of the Tiki Revival, painting a vivid, visually arresting portrait of a unique genre.
The Art of Tiki is published in conjunction with the 20th Anniversary Tiki Art Exhibition at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. Hundreds of full color reproductions.
