The origin of the character in this tiki painting was an old Polynesian god who was in local island lore for many years. When Hawai’i was inducted as a state of the US, Tiki came to fame in America. Tiki was quickly adopted as a slightly camp addition to already established island cliche’s. Tiki has remained associated with that era and region until this day.
For the longest of times I have been getting requests and questions about merchandise and after a long time of contemplating I have created my very first T-shirt line based on my Fire Tiki painting. A simple cut out, printed on the front in full colour digital print.
The shirts are 100% combed cotton and weigh 155 g/m². The shirts are an extra long fit.
