Billy Al Bengston

Part of the Southern California group of artists who got their early start at Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles, painter and ceramacist, Billy Al Bengston's subjects and palette often reflect the beach culture to which he has been closely allied for many years.

A retrospective of his work has been exhibited at Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, Oakland Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Contemporary Museum of Art in Houston. He has also had solo exhibitions at museums such as San Francisco Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Museum of Fine Art, and The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C..
