Overview
"I am more than a painter, I am a storyteller"

Lita Cabellut [1961] is a renowned Spanish multidisciplinary artist recognised as the third most valued Spanish artist and voted as the best artist of the Netherlands 2020. Lita grew up as a street child in Barcelona until she was adopted at the age of twelve. During this time, she was introduced to the Spanish masters at the Prado Museum, after which she immediately devoted her passion to art. She moved to The Netherlands at the age of 19, where she studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.

 

Over the years, Cabellut has developed a unique technique characterized by large-scale canvases that combine traditional fresco techniques and modern media applications.  The central theme of the human and the societal messages that Lita Cabellut communicates in her work is primarily expressed through her defining monumental portraits. 

 

Beyond her paintings, her work also includes: drawings on paper, sculptures, photography, scenography, installations, poetry, visual poems and videos. She has also expanded to Opera scenography in the creation of stage, custom and video design. It is Lita Cabellut’s central tenet of a guiding poetic sense that stirs all these multidisciplinary tools.

 

Lita's  works have been exhibited in numerous museums around the world, including, amongst many other places: Seoul Arts Center, Korea; Contemporary Art Museum, Sicily, Italy; CSMVS and Mumbai, India. Her work is included in the permanent collections of several museums such as Museo Goya IberCaja, Zaragoza Spain; Museo de Arte Contemporánea, Sicilia, Italy; The Fendi Collection, Italy; Museu Europeu d’Art Modern, Vila Casas Foundation, Spain; Théâtre Mogador, France; and Copelouzos, Greece.
