The mid-century aesthetic produced many lasting contributions to the art and architecture world, but postmodern Tiki art remains a much-seen visual stand-out, thanks to the eye-popping contributions of artists like Shag and Otto Von Stroheim.
La Luz de Jesus Gallery, "the world's preeminent art purveyor and epicenter of the celebrated low-brow art movement," pauses each year to spotlight contemporary Tiki-inspired artworks, as well as those treasures that inspired them. It's The Art of Tiki exhibit, and you can view its 21st annual outing at the Los Feliz-based gallery from Friday, Oct. 6 through Sunday, Oct. 29.
This is a "two-part exhibition," with the contemporary take on Tiki serving as just one element. The other section? Fans of the form will see "...vintage Tiki originals from which the modern movement sprang."
