Tiki Tarts were created to delve into the deeper meanings of our fascinations with beautiful, glamorous and decidedly Mid Century Modern women and why they and Tiki are inextricably linked. In this painting the Tiki god is awash in the glow of the latest offerings from Pele, while our delightful Tiki Tart makes sure the orchid in her hair stays secured. She's guaranteeing that fireworks are not solely the realm of the volcano.
My name is Shawn Shea. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I have been painting since I was seven. Have owned an illustration studio for many years and am now working full time as a fine artist providing the highest quality art to galleries, collectors and private commission clients. This first series of paintings here on Vango are my take on the Mid Century Modern retro aesthetic. Have always loved retro, noir, tiki sensibilities and LOVE exploring the genre. I hope you enjoy these and will follow me as I explore them and also appreciate the landscape and wildlife fine art I'll be showing, also. Looking forward to sharing my art with this community. Deep gratitude for taking the time to look at the work.
