Rick Sharp’s Vintage Hawaii Show brings back the magic
of old Hawaii through a unique blend of art, music and dance. 


If you walk through the gift shops of Hawaii, you have more than likely either seen or bought Rick Sharp’s “vintage” art.  His vibrant images of paradise – recalling travel posters of the 30’s and 40’s – are virtually everywhere:  on candles, placemats, coffee mugs, calendars, tote bags, shot glasses, photo albums and more…all beautifully produced by Island Heritage. 


In fact, many of these images have become such classics that most people assume they were painted in the heyday of travel posters – when the Islands promised an idyllic escape from the Great Depression and World War II.  But nothing could be further from the truth! 


Painter Rick Sharp, a part-time Big Island resident for many years, is not only alive and well; he has been appearing in TV, film and stage productions in between creating art.  And his unique vintage Hawaii Show "Honolulu Revue", on tour this summer, demonstrates this in one exciting “trip-back-in-time” event.


Sharp’s poster art and music show features a vintage-style band and a beautiful hula dancer, performing nostalgic Hapa Haole songs against a stunning backdrop of his oversized  vintage posters.


Artist Rick Sharp has been featured recently on HBO, PBS and Prime Time TV shows for ABC, CBS, TLC, Discovery Channel and Oxygen Network.  But the real “stars” of this show are the posters themselves – a large selection of which will be on display and available for sale as Limited Edition Fine Art Prints for collectors.  The artist will be on hand after the show to sign these prints.


About his touring art show, Sharp says, “I just want to share my love of old Hawaii with those who have the same affection for the past.”  Whether the music complements the art, or the art complements the music, the result is a romantic journey to bygone days.
