Luís Cabral was born in 1961 (in Lisbon, Portugal) into a family of artists. His great-grandfather, Roque Gameiro, is considered one of Portugal's greatest watercolor painters ever. His grandfather, Martins Barata, was one of the country's most prolific and admired fresco painters of the 20th century. Despite all of the encouragement and instruction from his grandmother and mother — themselves accomplished artists —, Cabral lapsed into economics and academics and is currently the Paganelli-Bull Professor of Economics and International Business at the Stern School of Business, New York University.
Beginning in the early 1990s, Luís Cabral started his way back into art, first watercolor painting, then other media such as acrylic and oil. His style is primarily figurative, ranging from the realistic to the semi-abstract. His subjects are varied, ranging from seascapes to landscapes to cityscapes. A recent series of "vertical" acrylic paintings celebrates New York City's urban architecture.
Cabral's work has appeared in close to a dozen exhibits, collective and individual, on both sides of the Atlantic.
He lives and works in New York City.
