Ben Cruz, born in 1954, is a multi-awarded visual artist both in the Philippines and Singapore. He completed a Fine Arts major in Advertising degree from the University of Santo Tomas, practiced as advertising graphic designer/illustrator at the International Rice Research Institute, Los Banos, Laguna; Welltrade Dharan, Saudia Arabia; Philippine Daily Globe, Pasig; and Singapore Press Holdings, Toa Payoh, Singapore.
Since 1983, Ben has managed to create award-winning paintings even while pursuing his professional graphic design practice.  Now retired from the advertising world, he is painting full-time and is currently focused on creating realistic-abstract art. Ben's play on dimensionality and layerings invites the viewers to familiar yet strange surroundings. Swirled up in a mix of colours, shapes and lines, we see common landmarks and objects and human forms.
He won the Painting of the Year  award in UOB 34th Painting of the Year 2015 Singapore competition.
