Magik of the Tiki Maker | Canvas Print

  • Sale
  • Regular price $ 630.00

  • The “Magik of the Tiki Maker” is about the mysterious powers and “magik” conjured by the tiki carver. This is their domain. The setting is dusk and we see the outrigger loaded full of the carved creations. A magical glow radiates from the hull of the outrigger at the end of this inlet, which will be ridden down the jungle river in the morning to the little village where these tikis will be sold.

    The carver has left his tools in the foreground with one tiki half finished. Taro grows in the shallow banks. Candles are the main source of light in the evening but the light and smoke from a dinner being cooked can be seen from the entrance to the tree home of the carver.

    Though mostly primitive... the fruity tingle of a cool rum drink in a tiki mug is still the choice of inspiration to this artist after a long day's work. The colors are very mystical... rich... almost phosphorus-like... to fit the feel. I modeled the look of the jungle from things I saw on Maui when I hiked in the areas on the North West inland. This tiki art will appeal to tiki lovers and to those into the more mysterious feel of Polynesian enchantment.
