HOUSTON — Betirri Bengtson is a visual artist from Mexico, and has lived in Houston for 18 years. Bengtson went to school in H-town for architecture and painting, and has focused solely on his passion for painting in the last four years. His forte? Soccer. He paints players, sort of. His real focus is on the essence of the sport, so there’s no need for bodies in his artwork. It’s worth a watch, and keep an eye out for his mural of four soccer legends — right here in the Bayou City!
