    The Sunken Tiki - Paper Giclee

    16"x20"

    $ 120.00

    "The Sunken Tiki was the first painting I did after I permanently moved to the Island of Hawaii. Only the ninth gallery piece I ever painted. The idea came to me while I was snorkeling along the Kona-Kohala coast. I was appreciating the bright yellow tangs - the most common local reef fish in Hawaii schooling around the reef. They moved and took shapes as a group. They're so bright you can see them clearly from the shore as they swim beneath the waves, glimmering as lovely as tropical flowers. My imagination saw them as a Hawaiian Lei draped around the neck of a sunken tiki, hugging an object to avoid the cartoon eel/snake; my own made up undersea menace. The eel-snake protects a lost chest of pirate treasure. My first Hawaii born painting was born, all I had to do was swim to shore, get to my studio, and put brush to canvas." - Brad Parker

    The original painting is acrylic on canvas, 16" x 20".

    Secret Cove - Paper Giclee

    16"x20"

    $ 120.00

    This piece is about environment, sunsets, and stargazer flowers I bought at a local Farmer's Market in Kona.

    The man who grew them hand-picked his very best for me after I told him I was going to use them as a reference in a painting.

    The waterfall was what I remembered from a trip to the other side of the island to see Akaka Falls.

    The wave I witnessed over and over as I contemplated the perfect rush and sweep of water at my local surf spot.

    The Wanderer - Paper Giclee

    16"x20"

    $ 120.00

    This painting the 16th "Mystic Tiki Painting" I created. It is my "Hawaiianna" take on a classical painting. "Der Wanderer uber den Nedlmeer" or "Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog" was painted in 1818 by German romantic artist Casper David Fridrich. The meaning conveyed in that famous painting is self-reflection as the man stands atop a mountain and looks down into an ocean of clouds. 

    I changed the hiker into a surfer watching the ocean waves. Reflection on his inner self, or his urging his mastery over the powerful sea? I placed a Tiki image in the sky and many ancient idols beneath the traveler's feet. This could mean there is a supernatural element to his journey, inward, and outward. 

    Most surfers I know have a keen, almost spiritual attachment to the sea. However, I try to leave conception of the art to the individual viewer as each person should give the art their own personal meaning.

    Exotic Traveler - Paper Giclee

    16"x20"

    $ 120.00

    The Exotic Traveler was painted for a specific reason, I was asked to paint something for the cover of "Tiki Magazine". This was a very big deal for me! I wanted to show a classic looking Tiki. I wanted it to vein a very classic "Hawaiianna" setting a beautiful night scene of a secluded beach, a perfect wave, with a small enchanted tiki hut on a beach in the background. I carefully placed in exotic orchids to frame the foreground.

    Then, I wanted a touch of the fantastic; I wanted to show something about local superstitions we have on the big Island of Hawaii about spirit-balls glowing in the jungle. A few dance around the hut, then one rises up out of the sand right in front of the TIKI. What is it? Good question! As the title suggests maybe it's a visitor from far away enjoying the beauty of Hawaii, an inter-dimensional tourist? Maybe a dear departed loved on watching over family? Or maybe just a trick of the light and the glowing lights you sometimes see in the jungle at night are nothing at all. These questions are best answered by the viewer.

    Tiki of the Blue Pool - Paper Giclee

    16"x20"

    $ 120.00

    The inspiration for this piece came from living on an active volcanic island. Often Volcanic fog, or VOG, is pushed by the trade winds from the volcano towards the town of Kailua-Kona. One summer, Kilauea was unusually active and a heavy volcanic mist swept around Mauna Loa creating primordial days, and glowing red sunsets. This effect, combined with the mysterious legend of "fireballs" floating across sacred sites on the island at night, inspired this iconic image.

    Moon of Manakoora - Paper Giclee

    16"x20"

    $ 120.00

    The Moon of Manakoora is a painting named after a song from the famous 1937 film; "The Hurricane". The song is sung by Dorthy Lamour.  The movie was the first one ever shot on location in the South-Seas. It's a tale of Star-Crossed lovers, plus a monster hurricane which wipes the island of "Manakoora" off the face of the big blue Pacific Ocean. 

    "Manakoora" is roughly translated to mean "Magical Knowledge"; "Mana" meaning "magical or spiritual power" and "Kuu-rah" meaning "Lore" or "Body of Knowledge". Upshot is the moon has magical powers, and you can ask it to make your true love come to you. 

    Like Dorthy Lamour sings:
    "The Moon of Manakoora filled night,
    with magic Polynesian charms.
    The moon of Manakoora came in sight,
    and brought you to my eager arms."

  • The Menhuenes Only Come Out at Night - Paper Giclee
    Quick shop

    There is a myth in Hawaii about the "Little People". These small folks are industrious and build fish ponds, Heiau (temples), bridges, shore breaks, and other things you find in tumbled heaps of lava rock laying about the islands. We are told many of these structures are left unfinished because the Menehunes only come out and night, and if they cannot complete the job in by sunrise they abandon it forever.  

    I thought about these strange beings after hearing several Hawaiian friends tell tales of them. Some say they'll run up and down tall palm trees in the courtyards of high-end Hotels in Honolulu and startle the guests. One told me their grandmother swears she saw them dancing around a fire on the beach. They looked all black with glowing red eyes. This captured my imagination. The idea came to me that if they are black like cooled Lava, with glowing red eyes maybe they are spirits made of Lava? So they are liquid lava during the day, flowing through the thousands of "lava tubes" that riddle the islands. At night they solidify into small rock humanoids with hot molten insides. This explains how they travel around the islands, through lava tubes, and where they disappear to during the day, again lava tubes. Being made of lava rock they must have powers to move the massive lava rock stones their structures are made of with ease. 

    The idea for the painting was born: I wanted to show the Menehunes climbing out of a lava tube as red-hot molten rock, and cooling off to take on the shapes of small rock tiki-creatures who enjoyed dancing before fires & Tikis.

    Forbidden Island - Paper Giclee

    16"x20"

    $ 120.00

    In 1956 a movie blasted onto theater screens, grabbed the imagination of a generation & hurled them into the cosmos with such vibrant alien sounds colors artifacts creatures and characters that it changed pop-culture. Forbidden Planet is an epic science fiction masterwork placing the Shakespeare play "The Tempest" on a distant planet plump with a lost alien civilization and stalked by monsters from the "ID". 


    Welcome to "Forbidden Island". It's one of the most popular of my "Tiki-Paintings". It's been pirated & sold on-line, fought over in court, and chosen by a few world class athletes as their favorite of all my work. It's the wrap-around cover to a great neo-exotica album by the "Crazed Mugs" named "Find Forbidden Island". It was painted with that purpose in mind - being an album cover.

    "Forbidden Island" is my homage to the science fiction films of the 1950's I loved growing up. Its various bizarre elements are all found in many of those movies, like the 1956 sci-fi epic; "Forbidden Planet" - that amazing film has many of the fantastic elements found here; Crashed ships, Aliens, Lost civilizations, Mental super powers, and walking automatons carrying beautiful girls.

    Forbidden Island's wide horizontal composition allowed me to create different scenes within its frame. On the left is a rustic tropical Tiki Lounge complete with glowing neon sign and two guardian Tiki doormen. Like any good '50's sci-fi film plot, there's a secret Laboratory with a giant tank and floating inside is a huge alien brain. The repulsive purple thing glares outward emitting a ruby-red stream if telekinetic power it uses to serve up an exotic tropical drink cooling in a frosty cold "Cthulhu Tiki-Mug". This beverage floats out to the exotic Wahine being carried by an accommodating "living Tiki". A giant stone Moai head looks out stoically over a wrecked pirate ship and it's cursed treasure, and further out across the sparkling sunset bay to an equally enormous stone statue carved into the island cliffs of an ancient "elder sea-god" like those written about in books by H.P. Lovecraft. Amongst the exotic flora and fauna is a brilliantly lit wave showing the framed silhouette of a shark cursing the coastline - making sure no one leaves or enters Forbidden Island.
