ARTIST BIO 
 

Arturo Cabrera: Immigrated to the United States with his parents from Ecuador at the age of four. He eventually moved to Pennsylvania studying art history and studio art at the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts. After graduating, he became a resident artist at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, PA, where he had his own private studio for a year. Cabrera then moved to New York City, where he worked for renowned artist Jeff Koons as a color mixer for two years. Now he works as a freelance artist out of Brooklyn, NY. Cabrera has exhibited in several shows including a solo exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ. His work is featured in private collections throughout the East Coast and Europe. He was also mentored by Lehigh Valley artists Myron Barnstone, Sandra Corpora, and Erin Anderson.

 
ARTIST STATEMENT
 

"I’m mesmerized by portraiture—gazing at someone until I no longer recognize them, building their image back up through mark making until they appear again, a bottom lip catching light, a golden wisp of hair, the gentle curve of a clavicle. I still don’t know what it all means, but I know how I feel when I capture it. I know that there is no better feeling in the world than when I do. It’s enough for me."
