Artist BenCab in front of Soldiers (Heroes of the Past IV), |
his work in the Lopez Museum and Library collection.
The Philippine Ballet Theatre (PBT) has staged 'Sabel: Love and Passion', a musical inspired by BenCab's Sabel, his most iconic subject, with music by Louie Ocampo, and book and lyrics by Freddie Santos. She also inspired Agnes Locsin, back in 2010, to create the dance 'Sayaw, Sabel.'
Sabel is not the only element of BenCab's personal interest that permeates his art.
