BEN NAZ is a Filipino-French street artist and one of the most recognized street artists outside the Philippines. Branded as “Manila’s Finest,” Ben NAZ’s dramatic, political scenes and heart breaking stencil works captured attention almost immediately. Depicting a struggle between the rich and the poor, deep-rooted and emotional images characterize eye-opening scenery to the people of the Philippines. This iconic “LA LOVE” hand finished screen print is an amazing example of Ben’s reputation for creativity, thought provoking and controversial imagery which was done exclusively for Black Apple Gallery’s Contraband 2 show in LA.
Having been active for the past 20 years, in late September 2012 Ben was struck with Esophageal Cancer and battled heroically to the very end. Despite Ben’s deteriorating condition, he was determined to remain active and continue to pursue his passion for his craft and staying true to his motto:
” LIVE LIFE WITH OUT REGRETS”.
