Lita Cabellut (1961, Spain) is Spanish multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in The Netherlands. Cabellut is most renowned for her paintings on large scale canvases using a contemporary variation of the fresco technique. Beyond her monumental 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 tenant of a guiding poetic sense that stirs all these multidisciplinary tools.

Lita Cabellut is recognized as the third most valued Spanish artist and her 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; Copelouzos, Greece; The Joop & Janine van de Ende Foundation and The Paul van Rensch Foundation, The Netherlands.

Lita Cabellut 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.
