Born in Seville in 1973, he graduated in Architecture from the University of Sevilla in 1999. He has gradually transitioned from combining architecture with painting to dedicating all his time to the later. Due to his discreet ties with the world of painting, he has only taken part in a few exhibitions, focusing for 30 years in the enjoyment and fulfillment of his works.
His work, mainly landscapes, focuses on the study of light, in the traditional urban architecture and in nature.
This self-taught painter was originally heavily influenced by the Andalusian customs of the beginning of the last century. His style is considered "realism-insinuism" of the shapes, where he focuses on light and shadow in order to share his way of seeing colors, life and light through his works.
When his good personal qualities are expressed through the delicate skill of a hand that reflects subtle touches of love and color, art shows its greatest power, as it does in these works of Pedro Fernández Cabecera, who shows a refined taste and exquisite composition, which make up this beautiful exhibition.
And this is how art mingles with life, as in the artwork of this young and passionate artist, where each brush-stroke reveals that thought that gives birth to all of his paintings; paintings in which a perfect drawing, and the balanced color palette are manifestations of an accomplished artist, whose understanding of art allows him to play with light and shadows, depicted in his landscapes and gardens.
His work also shows his own sincerity, which leads him to follow his art masters and discover the alchemy of a wandering spirit, which brings him to places like Morocco, where nature has experimented with color and light, along with the beauty of some Spanish corners, such as Seville and Granada.
He is a painter who uses bright and deep colors, following the classic art masters who depicted the landscapes of Northern Africa in the past, such as Fortuny and Bertuchi, from whom he draws inspiration to paint his own landscapes. He sets his scenes in the romantic Andalusia, full of flowers, beautiful young ladies awaiting in their balconies, and flamenco.
Pedro Cabecera masterly depicts costumbrist scenes, in which the splendid harmony of light and color is reflected with candour; ponds, parks, our beloved fountains from Granada and Sevilla. His is an artwork that makes us think about our beautiful Andalusia with pride.
