Cabral's ‘Teien’ journey began as a consequence of his self confessed clumsiness. It led to an event of allurement and mystery, uninvited yet warmly welcomed. The vibrancy of the shades and hues
layered next to each other in abstract symmetry, forming impressionistic landscapes. ‘Teien’ can be seen as Cabral's representation of the combined splendour of nature, simplified ancient
Japanese technique and modern minimalistic beauty. Each piece mimicking the aerial view outlines of an ornamental summer garden, cherry blossoms in full bloom.
Dividing his time between London and Cape Town, Ricardo takes inspiration from the colourful palette of the inspiring African landscape along with the vibrant, fast-paced cultural scene of one of
Europe’s great capitals.
