Daniel Cabral is a visual artist based in Brussels. With a contextual practice he responds to his surrounding through mixed media artworks. Often with the use of photography, archival images, collage, print and installations. Thinking the city as the source of action and reflection, he also makes use of found objects – unearthed from flea markets and on personal wanderings – that he intervenes and interact with.
Born in Recife, Brazil.
Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.
Cabral participated in exhibitions such as OVERPRINT (Centre de la Gravure et de l’Image imprimée, La Louvière, Bélgica, 2018); Lebanese Biennale of Art (MACAM, Alita, 2017) and RISCO! (MAMAM, Recife, Brazil, 2014). In 2015, he was the only Latin American selected for the WARP Artist Village, promoted by the Bruges Triennial. This year, his publication "Tour Leopold II - A Guide to the Colonial Heritage of Europe" was nominated for the Prix Révélation Livre d'Artiste by the Multiple Art Days and ADAGP in Paris, France.
