Victor Henderson was born in Ohio and raised in Pasadena, California. He received formal training and a BFA from San Francisco State College. In 1969, Henderson began collaborating with Terry Schoonhoven to create the Los Angeles Fine Arts Squad, a group of artists that included Jim Frazen and Leonard Koren. Rather than participate in an elitist gallery scene, this group chose to take their art to the streets. The Squad was more interested in the immediate effect their murals had on the community and cared less about how long their paintings lasted. The group disbanded in 1974. Henderson lives in Los Angeles.
Artists Elizabeth Garrison and Victor Henderson have been collaborating with one another on public art projects since 1988.
