Welcome to “The Art of Bob Benker” and the Volcano Art Gallery website.
This website is the natural follow-up to Bob Benkers’ acclaimed exhibition in Sinaloa, Mexico. Although a number of his paintings and ceramic pieces showcased within these pages are not available, they will give you an idea of the quality and passion that Bob instills in each and every piece of his artwork..
Whether it be kitty cats, mountain lions, coffee mugs or full-sized statues, Bob’s ceramics embodies a spirit and passion for all things both living and inanimate. For example, capturing the personality of a cat is no mean feat; working from only photographs, Bob has created a lasting piece of art for those who love their pets.
