Described as “a museum quality exhibition of striking portraits of strong individuals such as Coco Chanel, Billy Holiday, Anne Frank, Lorca and Frida Kahlo”, critically acclaimed Spanish artist Lita Cabellut’s Retratos showcase runs at the Red Penguin Gallery in Marbella until 20 June.

Lita, an orphan who grew up on the streets of Barcelona in a deprived gypsy community, was adopted when she was 12 and remarkably had her first exhibition just five short years later, before moving to the Netherlands at the age of 19, where she studied at Amsterdam’s Rietveld Academy…

Considered to be a painter with a unique pictorial language, Lita Cabellut uses a contemporary variation on the fresco technique and her works can be found in New York, Dubai, Miami, Singapore, Hong Kong, Barcelona, London, Paris, Venice, Monaco and Seoul to name but a few of the world’s greatest centres of art.

Her powerful pieces, which have a highly theatrical appearance, convey both emotion and conflict. The exhibition is free of charge and is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 9pm until 20 June. And on 14 & 15 June, the Red Penguin Gallery will be sharing their passion and knowledge about these stunning works of art with free guided visits at 12 noon, 2pm, 5pm and 7pm, offering visitors the opportunity to find out more about this fascinating artist, her inspiration, subject matter and techniques.

The Red Penguin Gallery is located on the first floor of El Corte Inglés, El Capricho Home and Decoration, Bulevar Alfonso von Hohenlohe 2, Marbella.
