a.k.a. Bosko Hrnjak
Bosko is an artist and tiki carver based out of Escondido, California.
Bosko Hrnjak was born in Los Angeles 1963 and raised in Southern California's San Gabriel valley among its mid-century splendor. He received a B.F.A. in 1988 from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. In the mid 80’s Bosko began his quest; to revive a lost art form, to bring back Tiki as sculpture! He was the first person to sculpt full size Tikis again, first to make Tiki ceramics (until the following century), first in years to create an elaborate home bar and museum "The Kapu Tiki Room". He designed and outfitted the first commercial Tiki bar in North America since the 1970’s, "Taboo Cove" in Las Vegas. His works are cherished by collectors and in hundreds of commercial spaces all over the world. Each piece is handmade by Bosko in his Southern California studios.
Bosko’s art work has been exhibited at: La Luz De Jesus, Track 16, Outré gallery, Tamara Bane, Roc La Rue, Huntington Beach Art Center, Copro Nason gallery, M-Modern gallery, Minna gallery, M-1 gallery, Beyond Baroque, Rita Dean gallery, Harold Golen Gallery and many others throughout the world.
