Eduardo Pérez-Cabrero is a plastic artist, born in Barcelona in 1961. He works between Barcelona, Madrid (Spain), Miami FL (USA) and Dubai & Ras Al Khaimah (UAE). His work is characterized by the influence of the Mediterranean Sea and its culture. His production is mainly in sculpture, with organic references. It works rounded and sinuous shapes in large formats. His work is made in aluminum, brass, resins, cement and ceramics. His work is sincere, simple, pure. An exaltation of the “Joie de Vivre”, it is optimistic, clear and direct. It encloses messages parallel to his way of understanding life, in some cases it can be seen as intriguing and mysterious, even enigmatic, an aspect that leads us to see the works in a more introspective dimension.
The Mediterranean art in which he is immersed is characterized by the fusion of sensualism with impressionism. In the Mediterranean environment, impressions are incomparably more energetic. The sea is bluer, the wheat is more golden, the sand is more material, the sky is brighter, the smile more open. His talent is presented as continuity to the artistic and plastic creativity of a family saga.
The industrialist Josep Batlló (1845-1934) -uncle of his maternal great-grandfather- entrusted his friend Antoni Gaudí with the construction of his family home, the renowned “Casa Batlló” on Paseo de Gracia, representative of Barcelona modernism at the beginning of the 20th century. Maestro Pérez-Cabrero (1847-1907) -paternal great-grandfather- was composer and conductor of the Liceo Orchestra, the musical and operatic jewel of Barcelona. Eduardo Pérez-Cabrero is interested in fleeting impressions, the appearance of things, the surfaces and the content of what he observes around him. He explores life from its epidermis, captures the vibrations and transmits them directly to his pieces. He abstracts the essence of the visual impact, processes it and generates pieces of simple and playful conception but of ingenious production. Eduardo Pérez-Cabrero enjoys the pleasure of the vision, he extracts the soul, the illusion, the impression. And he transmits it to his pieces, cheerful and lucid.
