Lita Cabellut

Portrait Lita cabellut

Lita Cabellut (born 1961 in Sariñena, Aragon) is a Spanish painter who lives and works in The Netherlands. She 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. Lita Cabellut had her first exhibition at the age of 17 and 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 applications of oil paint. The craquelere and defining pallete gives a skin and life to her portraits of street dwellers, prostitutes, religious people, historical figures, fictional characters and influential people.

The central theme of the human and the societal messages that Lita Cabellut communicates in her work is primarily expressed through paintings. However, beyond her defining monumental portraits, Cabellut is also a multi-disciplinary artist whose works includes film, poetry, drawings, installations and sculptures.
