Art & the Zen of Motorcycle Racing

As one of the leaders of the renowned Ferus Gallery group of artists, Billy Al Bengston blazed a path for generations of California Artists to follow. In the latest film in his California Masters Series, Director Dale Schierholt takes us inside the studio and home of the legendary artist.

Billy Al - he calls them as he sees them

Following the director’s experiential and intimate style, the film offers us a personal visit with Bengston as he talks about the motivations and inspirations behind his art, his fellow artists and the changing Art world. At times frank but often funny and warm, Billy Al calls them as he sees them and in doing so offers us insight into the work that helped define contemporary California Art.
