Currently, I'm up to my knees working on paintings for my next major exhibit: Tiki Modern! This show will focus on how the midcentury Modernism I typically paint extended into the tiki world back in the 1940s through 1960s. It's by no means the definitive tiki show, but mainly tiki architecture and design that have played a part in my life growing up in Southern California. From Shelter Island in San Diego to dive bars in Los Angeles, I thought it was time to cover this facet of Modernism that has had such a long-lasting impact on our culture. Please join me at the unveiling of this new series on Saturday May 18th, 5-8pm, at the George Billis Gallery, Los Angeles. Extra points for throwing on a Hawaiian shirt/dress!
