Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1967, a country of intense passion and political power at the time, Fabian is a believer in the romantic world and of the belief that women and men have defined roles but power is not always the goal.
Having come through a very difficult childhood, where both his parents died before he was 20, he was thrust into a world of loss and not knowing his path. His father was a Gambler, Nightclub and Bordello owner, which were both immoral and illegal at the time. Many a time spent, he recalls visits from police and jail time for his father, with his father trying to run out of the back door before he was caught….going to the jail to try and see his father was not always possible.
His mother was also an artistic person and encouraged a young Fabian to develop his talent for Art and to keep him off the streets…drawing and painting a great deal and proudly displaying them on the walls at home.
The passion within Fabian’s work comes from a place deep within him, through the memories of his fathers life and his own despair, having a depth of sadness that left him confused and searching , to live a life as a gypsy for several years. Turning to martial arts, he began to teach Karate, whilst living with friends and in martial arts studios. It is here that he met with Oscar Higa, a Japanese Karate master, who went on to become his friend, mentor, teacher and father figure. Having spent some time in Rio in a nomadic existence, he finally decided to pull himself together and followed Oscar to Italy. It was there that his career as an artist began, in the small town of Padova, just outside of Venice.
Eventually, after seven years in Italy and having travelled extensively, he decided to move to Japan, continuing his teachings of karate, which went on to influence him in his paintings, fluid movement to replicate flamenco and dance.
Today, he lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Luciana and their three children. She is often the subject within his paintings and stops short of not ever saying No to what Fabian desires in his work….she will always be his muse..Painting in the mornings or early afternoons, when the light is at its best and using mostly acrylic, he creates his dark, brooding and sensual works of art, preferring to give an idea and not every detail, painting the mood with colour to give the sense of what is being felt by the voyeur….
