Product Description

BenCab : Filipino Artist Billed as the “BenCab 50 Creative Years books,” the twin volumes with different covers offer the definitive evaluation and parade of images representing a half-century of exceptional art, beginning with an inspired assessment that only Flores could have written. The first volume also includes an important chapter titled “The Artist’s Voice” the memorable 1978 interview conducted in detail by Cid Reyes in London when Ben was beginning to find his exalted way in the international art world. This interview was the first to uncover and expound on Ben’s early fascination with the barong-barong for his first exhibit in the mid-1960s, as well as his breakthrough with the iconic Sabel the scavenger as subject, and of Pit-a-pit, the young Igorot, boy as “an example of a Filipino who had undergone the process of colonization.” The second volume covers BenCab’s 50-year retrospective exhibitions held in eight museums, with the curators contributing essays for the accompanying catalogue.
