Benny Andrews

Benny Andrews (November 13, 1930 - November 10, 2006) was a creator of collages, a printmaker, educator and author. He was born into a family of sharecroppers and began to draw at a very young age. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and, upon his honorable discharge, used his GI Bill to partially fund his art education at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Benny had his first one man show in 1962 in New York. He was elected to the National Academy of Design in 1997.  From 1968 to 1997 Andrews taught at Queens College, City University of New York. He was instrumental in helping form the National Arts Program.

His style is minimalist, figurative expressionist. His work can be found in the permanent collection of major museums throughout the country.
