Being immersed into Cocoa Beach’s notorious surfing community for the majority of his life, Bruce Best’s attraction toward beach-inspired art was a natural match. His love for Tiki carving sparked when he met Wayne Coombs and Chester Abeln, two Tiki-carving masters who taught Bruce everything he knows about the craft.
Every Tiki Bruce carves is unique. He draws inspiration from the Polynesian and Hawaiian cultures from which the art stems. He also finds traveling, the beach, and the all around laid-back culture found on the Space Coast to be some of his greatest muses.
“The Space Coast is an area that enhances the whole art concept, we’re all one family – that’s what the Space Coast brings, it’s about being part of something bigger”.Artisans
