Lionel Sabatté


Lionel Sabatté (Toulouse, France) graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2003 and throughout his career he has received several awards such as the Painting Prize of the Del Luca Foundation in 2019 and has received the Prize of the association ” Les Amis de la Maison Rouge – Fondation Antoine de Galbert ” in 2018, the Drawing Now Prize in 2017 and the Beijing Yishu 8 Prize in 2011. His work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions in France and abroad, incorporating several institutional collections.Practising painting, drawing and sculpture, he strives to create a dialogue between all his works in a permanent interconnection. The realm of the living, as well as the transformations of matter due to the passage of time, are at the heart of his work. Dust, ash, charcoal, dead skin are combined in his works, giving life to a hybrid universe in which birds, bears, wolves, owls and also unicorns mingle. His research on minerals and animals, gives us access to poetic and disturbing works, which participate in a global debate provoking deep reflections on our condition and the place we occupy in our environment, such as his installation/sculpture Meute de loup made of dust, presented in 2011 at the Museum of Natural History in Paris.
