Coming from a family of art lovers and art collectors, Donald Laborie is a French contemporary sculptor born in Paris in 1963. From an early age, he was introduced to the fundamentals of modern sculpture. He works in terra-cotta, bronze, and steel. Laborie has participated in collective exhibitions in New York, Paris, and Moscow. His work is semi-figurative, oscillating between post-cubism and abstraction. After spending two years in New York, he returned to Paris in 1996, where he continued his research on sculpture, turning towards a more simplified form with a purified approach.
