Fabre paints, drawing inspiration from ascetic writing, Japanese calligraphy and tag (a form of signature practised in grafitti).
Fascinated by literature and linguistics, the painting is according to Fabre a place where the boundaries between writing and meaning, shape and
message are blurred. The artist's work has features of abstract expressionism, minimalism and street art.
Matthias Fabre was born in 1990. He spent his childhood and the first part of his adolescence in Paris. He then attended the Institute of Romance Studies at Warsaw University, where he defended a thesis on the poetry of Francis Ponge.
He lives and works in Warsaw, Poland.
