Ivette Cabrera is a Nicaraguan born artist whose work is inspired by powerful women who have changed the course of history. She works in attempt to highlight and breakdown the barriers the society has presented upon women.  Many of the subjects in her art include women wearing headdresses. Cabrera states on the subject: “I want women to question their own identity so the headdress art is abstract, showing that every woman wears a crown.”  

Cabrera uses her background in studying architecture to channel her creativity into art. She has also opted for public art along with her drawings. The artist has stated that she has been inspired by architect Zaha Hadid, along with Charles Rennie Mackintosh plus Frank Lloyd Wright and many more of her works of art have testified to the voice the influence brings to her art.

Cabrera comments about her art: “The subjects for my work are women from various cultures. My research has led me to find important women who changed the course of history, sometimes by creating rituals to glorify certain women or by breaking all cultural barriers in a society that devalued their worth. As a woman, I feel that it is important to represent and tell their story. 

In visual art, it is both important to convey powerful messages to the viewer and to represent a beauty which entices the viewer to search deeper. The subjects of my work are beautiful women. But what makes them beautiful is how we see the power of their presence reflected back at us.”
