For more than sixty years Billy Al Bengston has been an innovative and integral part of the Southern California cultural scene. A member of the original group of Los Angeles artists to exhibit at Ferus Gallery, Mr. Bengston has made a name for himself over the decades in the varied worlds of contemporary art, surfing, and dirt-track motorcycle racing. From his early Dentos and Finish / Fetish pieces to delicate watercolors of Dracula Orchids and beyond, his work remains remarkably vibrant and ever-inventive. He has been the subject of several major museum retrospectives, but until now there has never been a single comprehensive book to fully do justice to his prolific body of work. At long last, from Neuendorf Gallery comes that tome - Billy Al Bengston: Paintings & Watercolors! Weighing in at five pounds, this lavishly illustrated hardbound volume illustrates hundreds of works spanning 1957 through 2016. A brand new, most handsome example of this comprehensive monograph additionally BOLDLY SIGNED by the artist. 978-3947563395 Inventory Number: E000BABP&W
