He is a member of the Salon d'Automne and member of the Committee of the Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts. Winner of the Critics in 1968 as Bernard Buffet 20 years earlier, he exhibited in France and worldwide, his works are in many museums. Menguy has infinite talent to be a painter we recognize at first glance. His passion for the subjects happy, especially the circus or the runway lights keeps them all happiness, laughing with clowns and balloons of all colors, express beautifully what this eternal child brings to the painting by its sweetness his grace and joy that inmoparable communicative.
