Tiki Art

As I have stated before, I am a lover of Mid Century Modern design, which includes kitsch as well as the serious and sleek. Tiki art definitely evokes that 50’s and 60’s funky vibe. My Tiki board is small but I’m sure it will grow. https://www.pinterest.com/lissaemmett/tiki/

This wonderfully moody painting in blues of tikis on shore while boats sail by took me to the site that is all tiki all the time, Tiki Central (http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=42791&forum=12).

Tiki post

Tiki Central is a forum for lovers of classic and modern Polynesian pop. Members post lots of pictures so it’s a fun site to browse. This particular painting was on a post listing new works for sale by the artist, El Gato Gomez. Here is her site: http://www.elgatogomezarts.com/

I love her retro atomic style and hope to be able to purchase a print someday; maybe after our library shelves are built. Her works remind me of two of my favorite Disney artists, Mary Blair and Ralph Hulett, which makes sense because Gomez’s work is available at Disneyland in the WonderGround Gallery. http://disneyparksmerchandise.com/events/wonderground-gallery-artist-showcase-with-john-coulter-jerrod-maruyama-and-kristin-tercek/?instance_id=
