    3” x 8.5” ceramic mug

    Medium : Acrylic Paint on Canvas.  My FIRST ORIGINAL PAINTING for 2023!
    Hand Painted ONE OF A KIND La Luz De Jesus Tiki Mugs - A RARE FIND!

    Description : Original Art. Two pieces. Original painting & hand painted tiki mug. My first piece of 2023. This started as a color study for a larger piece but as I grew to like the image I finished it with full detail as I would any final original. With it is a hand painted ceramic tiki mug. I designed a limited edition tiki mug for “La Luz de Jesus art gallery” in Hollywood California. This gallery is known as the birth place of the Lowbrow art movement, and during one of my shows there I thought it proper that the gallery have a custom tiki mug for sale along with my original art. 

    Artist Notes: An evolving project of mine.
     The Green Tiki - After I sold most of the run of the La Luz de Jesus tiki mugs, I hand painted a few to fulfill the idea that was behind the mug’s origin idea. I created the mug to resemble a monster model - like the ones I built as a child. I painted it up as if it were the monster from a 1950’s horror movie depicting a “Living Tiki”! I imagined the movie would be named “TIKI from a HAUNTED SEA!” (inspired by the actual film “Creature from a haunted sea) I then made up a promotional still in photo shop (one is included with purchase). This promotional still depicts the monster striding up out of the sea clutching a cursed, and haunted, treasure. No doubt the treasure holds the angry ghost of a long dead pirate which actually animates the Tiki. 

    The small painting was to be a color study for a larger piece. I enjoyed the image so much I completed it.
