Angel views everything as an artistic resource and utilizes this in all of his creations.  From his extensive experience with a variety of mediums and styles, to the intangibles, such as his upbringing and ideas, his work grows and expands with the requirements presented from each new art piece.  The artwork’s concept ultimately dictates the medium needed for its creation, so artistic evolution is intrinsic in his philosophy.


Originally from the border city, El Paso, TX, Angel was instilled with a great interest in science and math because of his father, a retired engineer at White Sands Missile Range. Cabrales also learned the importance of community and social work through his politically active mother. A stay at home mom, who volunteered heavily in the church, community, helped register voters and even ran for state representative in the state of New Mexico. Angel's work is a mixture of social/political commentary with and engineered flare.


Cabrales received his BFA in sculpture from Arizona State University and his MFA in sculpture from the University of North Texas.  He has shown work consistently for over ten years including shows in major cities such as Santa Fe, New York, Dallas, Fort Worth, El Paso, Phoenix and Juarez, Mexico. He was an adjunct professor at the University of North Texas and Tarrant County College Southeast. Angel was a visiting lecturer in Sculpture at the University of Texas at Brownsville for two years where he developed a new direction for the UTB Sculpture program. Currently, he has moved to El Paso, TX to focus on his art work and recently began teaching sculpture at the University of Texas at El Paso
