Cabelo is a poet, musician and artist who considers his drawings, paintings, sculptures, songs, performances, videos and instaurations as manifestations of poetry. According to Luiz Camillo Osorio, “the various lines of force of his poetics – drawing, music, text, materials – have an expressive happening as their focus, always marked by the incisive presence of the body”. His work takes place both in museums and on the street. He participated in the X Documenta in Kassel, the 26th and 33rd São Paulo Biennials, the 7th Mercosul Biennial, among others. Currently, he is involved with the ongoing project ‘Light with Darkness’: an exhibition, a concert and a musical album that blend together into a single work.
