Art by Benny

My brother's friend Benny Coyle is an aspiring artist. Here are some photos from my visit to his house/studio.

He sometimes uses a burning technique with chemicals. He also did an interesting series of portraits of assassinated political figures - MLK Jr., JFK, Ghandi - covered in plexi that had bullet holes in it. They make quite a statement - too much of a statement according to his agent.

Benny's Titanic painting will be part of a nautical-related exhibit in Venice next week (CA, not IT).
