Tribute to Benjamin Abelardo Resella



Benjamin Abelardo Resella (May 14th, 1917-March 24th, 2009)
“I have a lot of imagination. Imagination is useless if you cannot put it on something. What’s the use of imagination in your brain? It’s not doing anything in there. You have to put [your imagination] on a sculpture, a drawing or paintings, or whatever, you have to put it down so people can see it.” -Benjamin A. Resella
