21st Anniversary Art of Tiki Show
Exhibition: Oct 6-29
Book release and signing party
Friday, October 6, 8-11 PM

With Otto Von Stroheim, Sven Kirsten
and over 30 of Today’s Top Tiki Artists

"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. Author Sven Kirsten combines his first-hand 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."

#Laluzapalooza2017 @laluzdejesus 

March 3 – April 2, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, March 3rd, 8-11 PM

"La Luz De Jesus Gallery proudly presents our annual juried group exhibition, LALUZAPALOOZA. This gigantic, no-theme show features works from some of the freshest and most relevant artists working today. Again we sorted through tens of thousands of submissions from commercial illustrators, graphic designers, tattooists, scenics, students, street taggers, animators and working gallery artists.  How many will we show this year? There are just over 130 pieces from 64 artists, making this the most exclusive selection of tastefully, jam-packed, salon-style exhibited works in Post-Pop. There are some familiar names from our ever-growing roster of feature artists, but an overwhelming percentage of the work this year are from a brand new batch of previously undiscovered, emerging talent."
