Sunday Matinée

Please meet Lita Cabellut. She is the greatest female painter alive, if you ask me.

Although I have mentioned her once before on this column, I decided to give her the platform again. For two reasons: first, her genius well deserves another go and second, it is a present to myself today.

The Catalan paintress, who studied art in the Netherlands, has a sensational technique, when it comes to finish a painting, leaving the surface looking like the old masterworks of a Ruben or Rembrandt. But this is not the only fascinating facette. Her topics are modern and she paints humans, most of the time. Or human emotions. Just like she says on her own website: “I am more than a painter, I am a storyteller.”

And she does poetic videos. Like this one: a black and white hommage to Coco Chanel.
