Bengston, Billy Al (American painter, born 1934)

Note: A central figure in the Los Angeles avant-garde of the 1960s, Bengston's paintings are highly influenced by Southern California's car and motorcycle culture. In the 1970s, he began producing watercolors and designing furniture, and his paintings have taken on a more romantic tone.
