Learn your DEREKart ABC

One of my favourite tiki inspired artists is definitely Derek Yaniger. Derek creates fun and colorful art, with a vintage feel. Paintings of beautiful Pinup ladies, Hawaiian Hula girls, hotrodding daddy-os, krazy kool kats, and cocktail parties are just a small part of his collection of incredible art. His work is undoubtedly inspired by the 1950s and 1960s and tiki-culture, and I love it.

It’s not a complete surprise I’m drawn to his artwork, as he used to draw for Cartoon Network. When I was just a little Dolly I was slightly addicted to CN shows such as The Power Puff Girls and Dexter’s Laboratory. In a way, Derek’s art is a little trip down memory lane crossed with my ‘grown up’ passion.

Three paintings by Derek Yaniger I want to show you today, form an adorable ABC. Check them out below!

This painting, and Aloha from Hawaii might just be my favorite pieces by Mr. Yaniger! I love the colors, in combination with the ultimate party-hosting-vibe of the perfect hostess. I think I might get cracking on some cocktail party invites myself!
