LONDON.- Opera Gallery presents Transformation, a solo exhibition off 22 new works by one of Spain’s most acclaimed portrait artists Lita Cabellut. The third highest selling artist in Spain, Lita Cabellut’s paintings are collected by many public figures including Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman and Gordon Ramsay and have been the subject of numerous high profile international exhibitions.

Before being discovered by a prominent Catalan family, who adopted her in her early teens, she was introduced to the Spanish masters at the Prado Museum, where she discovered the works of Velazquez, Goya and Frans Hals who continue to influence her practice to this day. Surrounded by the abundance of fresco paintings in Barcelona, Cabellut developed a signature technique that captured the volatile characters and scenes of her hometown.

Lita Cabellut has made herself with hard work, with anger, with infinite tenacity. Almost inconceivable she has spent time, diligent hours: on her, on her inner world and on her perception of divinity and beauty, and on her painting, her technique, her mode of expression.

Celebrated for her impressive large scale paintings that capture their subjects in the fury of a moment, Cabellut is a master of colour and style. Her unique practice uses an ensemble of traditional fresco techniques mixed with modern applications of oil paint, as a result of more than 10 years of research that create an inimitable quality and texture to her work. The subject of Lita Cabellut’s work is most of all the human condition with its alternating current of emotions and moods: her painting, of characters and gestures, of representations and the invincible tremor of the imagination. Each painting attempts to capture the raw essence of the subject. Alongside everyday people that inspire Cabellut, past subjects include diverse range of public figures such as Frida Kahlo, Coco Chanel, Sigmund Freud, Billie Holiday, and Marie Curie.

What Opera Gallery director Federica Beretta has to say about the exhibition: “We are thrilled to be showcasing Lita’s powerful work in London this March. She’s an incredible storyteller that transports us to a world of her own and we are incredibly happy to be able to celebrate our long standing relationship with her with this exhibition.”
