Armando Cabba’s body of work primarily consist of the duality of portraiture and abstraction along with everything in between. Primarily known for his portraits, his subjects are figurative in nature yet are loaded with colour and echo the handling seen in his Brut series. Cabba’s intimate relationship with his subjects is exuded through subtle nuances combined alongside his attention to detail.

Born in Montreal, Cabba earned his BFA from Concordia University. He was then accepted into The Florence Academy of Art the following year where he attended briefly before opening his own studio in Italy. Armando’s work is held in private collections in the United States, Europe, and Canada. After a few years working independently in Italy, he’s moved to Paris where he currently continues to create.
