Benzart

a.k.a. Ben Davis

Benzart (1945-Present) is an accomplished tiki carver based in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. His first big tiki carving job was in 1989 at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas where he carved many pieces for them including a 13' tall Ku from redwood. In 2004 he discovered Tiki Central and that's where his "Benzart" moniker began. He had a huge presence on the site, both in posting his own pieces and in encouraging other artists and carvers. In addition to his larger pieces, Ben is also known for his smaller intricate necklace carvings. Health issues over the years have prevented him from being as prolific as he might hope, but for those collectors that have one of his pieces in their collection, they dearly treasure his work.
