Bones Banez named an official member of the Williamsburg Circle
His membership is is noteworthy to record because Bien is a rather extraordinary individual:
Bienvenido "Bones" Banez, Jr. is a Filipino surrealist painter born on June 7, 1962 in Davao City, Philippines. He is the only Filipino surreal artist included in the Lexikon der phantastischen Künstler (Encyclopedia of Fantastic and Surrealistic and Symbolist and Visionary Artists). He produced a major folio of philosophical verse, THE SATANIC VERSES OF BONES BANEZ, now in the collection of the Yuko Nii Foundation. He is considered by many to be one of the foremost international surrealists.Lest one misunderstand, Bien's Satanic Verses are in the manner of C. S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters, presenting, not advocating, a Satanic point of view . . . I think.
I'm also a member of the Williamsburg Circle, taken in probably because they needed an ordinary fellow.
