Billy Schenck

An originator of the Western Pop Art movement, Billy Schenck incorporates techniques from photorealism with a pop art sensibility. Schenck’s artwork is now in 48 museum collections, including at the Smithsonian Institution.

Schenck is known for utilizing cinematic imagery reproduced in a flattened style, where colors are displayed side-by-side rather than blended or shadowed. A genuine cowboy himself, Schenck is a ranch-sorting world champion and the proprietor of the Double Standard Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, his home for the past two decades.  Check out this video to learn more about Billy Schenck.
