I began my career as a pattern painter and was included in the Pattern and Decoration at P.S. 1. I was interested in mathematics and geometry in patterning and the Fibonacci Series in particular. This led to experimenting with paintings within a grid and then off the grid. I began to observe the geometric intricacy of architectural designs which led me to create small horizontal oil paintings of cities and landscapes. I moved back to pattern and focused on drawing in ink and Flashe´ paint with imagery that related more to biomorphic forms. My recent works are an explosion of past obsessions with pattern; patterns that occur in nature, craft, and work associated with women. The relationship to geometry has always been a focus from my earliest work to my current work. The pieces which are drawn in ink, paint and collage create color and form with endless possible variations. I borrow from many sources for collage material including other artist’s work in a collaborative effort where the results form an integrated piece.

Taking elements from Mexploitation movies and Science Fiction Dystopias, ChupaCabrales presents Tequila Sci Fi. Blending the images of classic science fiction with current immigration issues, Cabrales draws narratives on the inhumane and unjust actions on the border from our current administration. While classic Mexploitation movies were known for portrayals of Mexican life which usually dealt with crime, drug trafficking, money and sex, Angel moves to change the narrative focusing on the dehumanization of migrants as the main emphasis and couples it into the science fiction genre.
