Originally trained as a painter, artist Pierre Sabatier was always interested in integrating art to architecture, enlisting in Fresco painting at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1952. At the end of the 1950’s, thanks to a 1% for art program in France, Sabatier is selected to create his first truly monumental commissions. Working with metal as he would with paint, Sabatier acid washed or mixed multiples metal – as in this panel in stamped brass mixed with blue pigments - and used tools he fashioned himself to folds, cuts out, hammer, and weld tons of metal, transforming sometime huge surfaces.
