Curriculum Vitae

Adrian Cabedo was born in 1956 in Gibraltar. In the past he has worked as a commercial diver, photographer, climber and yacht skipper. He received his first art prize in 1968 which essentially began his artistic life. Preferring to paint from nature, and living in Gibraltar , with southern Spain at his doorstep he is never short of stunning and varied subjects. His main interests lie in the land and seascape of the area, and all that goes on around it. He first exhibited at the Gibraltar Open Art Exhibition in 1982, where he won third prize for his watercolours. Since then he has painted and exhibited annually in the Gibraltar Opens, having been awarded various commendations and prizes along the way. Apart from Gibraltar he has also exhibited in Spain and the U.K., including the Royal Society of British Artists and other London galleries. There are paintings of his in many private and corporate collections around the world, in Toronto, Mexico, Alaska, U.S.A. Canada, Spain and of course Gibraltar, including many ex-Governors of Gibraltar, the British Ambassador to the Holy See, Rome and the British Ambassador to Chile.
