From growing up in the epicenter of America's Tiki movement that was 1960s Los Angeles ... to Tiki's dark days in the eighties when all had forgotten the movement, Bosko became the first to bring back the lost art of Tiki carving and producing Tiki mugs, eventually designing the first new Tiki bar in the U.S. after Tiki's downfall, Taboo Cove in Las Vegas ... right up to the vibrant Polynesian Pop scene of today. Tiki Modern author Sven Kirsten calls Bosko “The Pioneer of the Tiki Revival.”
Another show and tell with artist / sculptor / mug-maker / carver / Tiki historian Bosko whose trail-blazing career spans over two decades of Polynesian Pop's resurgence. This year with an emphasis on his Tiki mug designs and collecting mugs in general, how did these once discarded relics become more popular than ever? Bosko presents amazing images from his vast archive of vintage Tikiana, gathered over 20 years of collecting.
