by Tiki Jay One
Los Angeles-based graffiti artist Tiki Jay One has created works up and down the west coast, with most of his pieces visible in the South Bay area. Many of his works feature aspects of Polynesian Pop, most notably his squared-off moai logo. He uses a variety of techniques, but most of his work is in stark black-and-white, using intricate stencils. Above is a sculpture of Tiki Jay’s logo done in 250 pounds of concrete, 20 feet above sea level. The picture was taken at Venice Beach in early January 2006. Tiki Jay has been featured in Time magazine, and he had a solo show at Walled City gallery in June 2005.
