About Carlos Cabán

100_1658_0Visionary painter, illustrator and teacher, Carlos Cabán is a graduate of Pratt Institute who has lived and taught at the Instituto de Allende in San Miguel for many years. His work has graced the covers of albums and children”s books and magazines. His paintings have been exhibited in New York, Chile, Santa Fe New Mexico, San Francisco, and Mexico.

As a Peace Corps volunteer, Cabán lived and worked with the nomatic Wayu indians in Colombia. This had a profound affect on his work.  Since then, he has continuously explored indigenous spirituality, myths and other states of consciousness in his paintings and drawings.  In Mexico, Cabán has lived with the Huichol indians and participated in ceremonies and pilgrimages that have inspired many paintings. These themes interwine with his desire to go back to basics: light and color, mother goddess culture, symbols and geometry, abstractions and dreams, back to the subconscious.  This makes Cabán’s paintings resonate with Visionary Art.
