Following his successful stint at STPI that culminated with the show “IMPRESSIONS” in early 2006, STPI invited BenCab to an unprecedented second residency in mid-2010. For his second stay at the institute, BenCab maximized the use of the creative expertise and facilities available at STPI. “It was difficult the first time around because I was not really aware of the full capabilities of the institute. This time, I wanted to make sure that I can utilize all the available facilities,” said the artist.

STPI enabled BenCab to return to his first love, printmaking, exploring his iconic themes of movement and dance, evolution and change, tradition and modernity.
