Rodrigo Cabrera is a multi-disciplinary artist born in 1974 in Mexico City. He has never undergone professional training in fine arts except for a brief two-year period in Gestalt theories applied to graphic design. During this stage, the interest of the artist was exclusively focused in the laws of synthesis inherited from the Bauhaus school. He gave up his early studies to essentially become a self-taught creator.
For almost two decades, his aesthetic research has led him to establish in several metropolises of the world, such as Paris, Barcelona, London and Shanghai in periods of one to five years every time. The variety of subjects and techniques used in his works reflects a personal quest devoted to grasp what in his own perception is absolute.
Because of Rodrigo Cabrera's natural reject on the usual practices of the so-called international art market, he has been presenting his work in a rather restrictive number of exhibitions, in either private or public venues between France, the United States and Mexico City. In 2007 he presented his technique X-Mouse at Paris Espace Pierre Cardin alongside renowned international contemporary artists, at Salon International d’Art Contemporain du cadre d’Or. He would later display three distinctive projects: FÉNIX, RSVP and HISTORY LESSONS, presented in the form of a melancholic reflection at the prestigious Miami River Art Fair during the Art Basel Week 2012. Since then, he has entrusted the diffusion of his work to the organization of private evenings, correspondingly to an ever more intimate turn, which is entangled in his artistic and philosophical process. This ultimate exhibition fashion has granted him the possibility to establish a direct connection with his guests, amateurs or professionals alike of contemporary art, with the aim to create bonds with a public receptive to the message conveyed through his work.
Since autumn 2017, the artist works on the conception of his SkyUnder Foundation in Paris, France, from which the postulate of his personal artwork collection’s meant to be the heart of this project.
