Details

A suite of six mixed media works on paper, 10" x 8" with deckled edges, edition of 295 examples. The ‘Tahitian Hipster’ paintings were produced in Tahiti on Everhart's dream-like open-air studio deck that sits 6 feet above a shallow lagoon 100 yards off shore. So the work had to be visually about the Tahitian Hipster. The most obvious common denominator in Hipster style seems to be contemporary headwear. Of course there are many contemporary Tahitians, but Tahitian headwear is predominately deeply rooted in centuries of tradition and history. The materials and designs of this headwear are amongst the most beautiful works of art.  The most obvious common denominator in Hipster style seems to be contemporary headwear.

Accompanying this change is a new sense of contemporary commercial fashion and style supported on the street by the constant new flow of very styled ‘Hipsters’. He has evoked that change in this vibrant depictions of Snoopy. His studio in Venice faces out to a neighborhood involved in an evolution of rapid visual change.

Although, to some of the original residents this new visual is met with some discomfort. Mostly, because it didn’t fit their idea about life ‘style’," - Tom Everhart "It was absolutely Sparky’s drawing line constructions that first excited me and influenced the last 26 years of my work. But, it was also the sense that doing an entire body of work visually based on only one very successful cartoon’s imagery was brand-new work. And, that it would be uncomfortable with most art professionals because it didn’t necessarily fit their idea about museum painting. It may have been the undertow of my work," - Tom Everhart The paintings using Charles Schulz's comic strip, Peanuts, as subject matter began and replaced the skeleton and nature related paintings in 1988. The inspiration came to Everhart in Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was undergoing several operations for stage 4 colon / liver cancer in the summer of 1988. Everhart recalls lying in a hospital bed surrounded by enough flowers to open a florist shop, piles of art books and a stack of Peanuts comic strips sent to him by Schulz. The light streaming in from the window almost projected the new images of his future Schulz inspired paintings on the wall. All the images in Everhart's work are in some respect derived from Schulz's Peanuts comic strip.
