(1956 - living) U.S.A.
Painter David Cabrera (born in Victorville, California) earned a BFA (in 1979) and an MFA (in 1982) from the California Institute of the Art. He lives and works in New York, NY.
He creates a tension between heavy political subject matter and childish execution in his work which deals with the formal characteristics of minimal art. Its appearance is used as a false identifying mark of personal and traditional art.
He has exhibited at 303 Gallery, New York; Richard Kuhlenschmidt Gallery, Los Angeles; Galerie Bruges La Morte, Bruges, Belgium; Hallwalls, Buffalo, New York; and he had his first exhibition in Chicago at the Robbin Lockett Gallery.
