Mike Kendall: "Off the Wall"
April 8 – May 7, 2017
 
Benicia, CA - Arts Benicia is celebrating its 30th year in 2017!
As part of our celebration we will honor one of Arts Benicia's first exhibiting artists and long-time Arsenal resident Mike Kendall with a special one man show during Benicia Artists Open Studios. Kendall’s paintings and sculptures will be on view in the Arts Benicia gallery April 8 - May 7, 2017.

Inspired by the work of Hieronymous Bosch, H.R. Giger and surrealist artists, Kendall’s artwork ranges from mixed media metal sculptures to large scale paintings.

Commenting about his artistic approach, Mike states, “I enjoy creating works that demand the viewer's attention, through bold statements, contradiction, illusion or moving beyond the visual senses.”
