Ben Davidson

Ben Davidson is the son of internationally renowned artist Robert Davidson. He specializes in three-dimensional artwork, such as forton casting and wood carving, although he has been expanding his practice to incorporate different mediums including jewelry and serigraphy.

At the age of sixteen Ben began carving in wood and later apprenticed with his father. He has also worked with well-known master carvers such as his uncle Reg Davidson and John Livingston. 

Ben's artworks can be seen in many of the top galleries in Vancouver. A recent piece of his was featured in the exhibition Raven Travelling: Two Centuries of Haida Art at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2006. 

Ben is an accomplished dancer and is an integral member of the Rainbow Creek Dancers. One of his key initiatives is to be an active participant in the Haida community through the mentoring of young artists and his constant exploration of the connection between his art form and ceremonial practice.

    Ben Davidson’s Tide Walker is a remarkably expressive serigraph by one of the Northwest Coast’s foremost artists. The blend of traditional and contemporary formlines, as well as the use of rich and saturated colour, joins to create an aesthetic that is distinctly a Ben Davidson work.

     

    Below are the artist’s own words regarding this piece:

    “Tide Walker exists in the space between the land and the ocean. From afar, he appears as a dorsal fin, so we imagine his body beneath the waves. We are so desperate to be the first to see the killer whale that we allow our minds to complete his story before we have time to determine the truth. We are so swiftly lured into believing the surface story that we rarely take time to consider what lies beneath.” (Davidson, 2017).

    Ben Davidson is an internationally renowned contemporary First Nations artist. He is the son of Robert Davidson, also of international fame. Ben stays true to his Haida ancestry, while always pushing the boundaries of traditional artwork.
