Lita Cabellut (born 1961 in Spain) is a Spanish multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in the Netherlands. Cabellut is best known for her large-scale paintings, which she makes using a contemporary variant of the fresco technique. In addition to her monumental paintings, her work also includes drawings on paper, sculptures, photography, scenography, installations, poetry, visual poems and videos. She has also extended her work to opera scenography and stage, costume and video design. Lita Cabellut's central concern is to develop a poetic sense that drives all these multidisciplinary tools.
Considered the third most valuable Spanish artist, Lita Cabellut's work has been exhibited in numerous museums around the world, including the Seoul Arts Center, Korea; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sicily, Italy; CSMVS and Mumbai, India. Her work is included in the permanent collections of several museums, including the Museo Goya IberCaja, Zaragoza (Spain); Museo de Arte Contemporánea, Sicilia (Italy); Fendi Collection (Italy); Museu Europeu d'Art Modern; Vila Casas Foundation (Spain); Théâtre Mogador (France); Copelouzos (Greece); Joop & Janine van de Ende Foundation; and Paul van Rensch Foundation (Netherlands).
