William T. Wiley, William Allan, Robert Hudson


The artists William T. Wiley, Robert Hudson, and William Allan grew up together in Richland, Washington. All three continued their art studies at the California School of Fine Arts in the 1950s, although they ultimately rejected the then-dominant Abstract Expressionist style for more intensely personal visions inspired by Dada and Surrealism. Often credited as pioneers of the Bay Area art movement known as Funk, they occasionally create complex collaborative works in their idiosyncratic style.
