Portuguese artist born in Lisbon, where he lives. Attended the Fine Arts School of Lisbon and began to show individually in the beginning of the 80s. Using drawing or installation, painting or objects, Cabrita Reis gives in a very intense way the sensation of mistery face to the strange world in which we live. The artist chooses frequently materials of poor connotation, like timber for house-building, paper, neons, cloth, to develop constructions with poetic references. The building process, shanty houses, constructions that look like abandoned architecture before it is finished, and on the other side, places of knowledge, maps of stars, have been obssessively in the centre of his preoccupations. Cabrita Reis is one of the Portuguese artists with more intense international career. He has shown individually in the main museums of Europe, represented Portugal in the XLVI and XLVII Venice Biennale's (1995 and 1997) and twice in the São Paulo Biennale (XXII, in 1994, and XXIV, in 1998). In 1999-2000 has shown retrospective exhibitions of his work at Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, Wien, Austria and at the Serralves Museum, Oporto, Portugal. He  participates frequently in important international shows, for example in 1992, at "documenta 9", Kassel.
