AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Breathtaking works of art interleaved with an intimate personal journal, Billy Benn the book, is a story of redemption; falling from grace and being saved by painting. For the past 30 years painting has been a constant in Benn's life, it has given him status and a visibility in the world. Painting has shaped him and he has shaped painting'.
