Much of my art is inspired by music. "Diga Diga Doo" is named after an amazing piece of  "exotica-music" that started as a "swing" tune from a 1928 Broadway musical. It was re-recorded by the legendary exotica composer Martin Denny in 1961.

Exotica music was "Hawaiiana-music" popular in mid-century America. Its goal was to take the listener on an audio trip, often complete with sound effects like bird calls, to an "exotic" land, very far away from the very conservative work-a-day-world.

Denny's exotica "Diga Diga Doo" is a near perfect audio embodiment of what I am seeking to represent with my Tiki-Art. The painting is also the answer to the exotic-question; "What would a living Tiki-Mug look like"?
