At Home With BenCab

So few people get the privilege of being welcomed in an artist’s home. Artists, with their affinity for solitude and privacy, would seldom, if not let anyone enter their sanctuary.

MissTolentino.com was given this opportunity.

Brilliance coupled with simplicity marks this man of many talents.

Discovering his artistic inclination at the tender age of 7, Benedicto Cabrera aka “BenCab” was greatly influenced by his elder brother, Salvador.

Arriving a little bit before lunch, MissTolentino.com joined this artist as he gave us a tour of his estate and the numerous masterpieces he created.

Join us as we give a glimpse of this laidback artist and Baguio City’s rock star, BenCab.
