Humuhumu’s description

Mai Tiki was the business of tiki carver Wayne Coombs, and his Mai Tiki Gallery opened in 1973. Wayne started carving tikis in 1967, and continued carving tikis for 45 years. He was the pioneer of what has become a distinctive style for tikis out of Florida. He did custom work not just in carving, but also painting, and other tiki decor. His showroom offered a variety of one-of-a-kind tikis and masks. Wayne Coombs passed away of a heart attack in September 2012, and the gallery closed in November 2013.

I'll never forget my introduction to Wayne - it just so happened I was walking by the place and this huge guy with a crazy frond of hair and covered with sawdust more or less jumped right out at me yelling DO YOU LIKE ART??? WHAT ABOUT TIKIS???? COME SEE MY GALLERY! and of course I had to come back repeatedly, year after year, buying his artwork. I still wish I'd have bought more, he was quite a character.

Went to Mai Tiki to see a true carver and was very impressed w Wayne Coombs, he's a true artist who has been hard at work for over four decades passionately creating and inventing process in the tiki world...a true working artist!
