Benji Reyes

"Functional Sculptures"
A silent, but pivotal figure in the Philippine woodworking community, Benji Reyes’ functional sculptures inspire the sculptural style of Philippine contemporary furniture.
After earning academic units in architecture at the University of Santo Tomas in 1977 and later in fine arts at the University of the Philippines in 1982, Benji took on woodworking as his artistic vocation for the last 28 years.

Benji’s free-spirited approach to the craft had set him apart very early in his career. He challenged traditional approaches to material axiomatics in carpentry as he deliberately avoided the use of nails to fasten pieces of wood together.
