Pedro Cabrita Reis is a Portuguese artist, working predominantly in sculpture. Initially the artist began his career as a painter, developing a more 3 dimensional painterly vocabulary as his career progressed. Taking inspiration from architectural forms and memories of space, Reis’s installations often bear an unfinished aesthetic, drawing on throwaway materials and light sources to question moments of reality within space. The artist has exhibited widely throughout the world and represented Portugal at the Venice Biennale in 2003. In 2009, a major retrospective of his work was exhibited at Hamburger Kunsthalle, Germany, featuring around sixty sculptures, including several large-scale pieces, paintings, drawings and photographs.
