Peter Sabat was born in 1970 in Kitchener Ont and his formative years were spent in Fredericton, NB. He held his first solo exhibition at the age of seven at the Fredericton Public Library and was featured on a CBC-TV New Brunswick Art Profile in 1979, 1985 and 1986. He had several solo exhibitions in his early career in New Brunswick. Since these early days, Peter Sabat has exhibited his paintings and films throughout Canada, the United States and Europe. He studied painting and film at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto.
Between 1997-2004, Sabat resided in Berlin, Germany, collaborating with artists and composers on films, operas, and art projects. His films with composer Walter Zimmermann have been presented at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Kunstmuseum Bonn, KNM Berlin's HouseMusik, and the Goethe-Institut. Other projects have been produced in association with composers Wolfgang von Schweinitz, Thomas Meadowcroft and Marc Sabat. His works have also been shown at the MaerzMusik festival and the Deutsche Kinemathek in Berlin, the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and the Art Institute of Chicago. "AUTOMAT," a video/music collaboration with brother Marc Sabat, was featured at Carnegie Hall, New York, as part of the "Berlin in Lights" festival in 2007. In 2010, he presented a new series of paintings, "Vague Longings I-II," as an online exhibition. "California Elegies I" and "Smoke (after Piranesi)" opened in December 2011. His latest film is "A Place On Earth" (2011).
His paintings hang in the permanent collection of the Goethe-Institu, the Canada Council Art Bank, the New Brunswick Museum, Saint John; the Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal; the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Fredericton; the University of New Brunswick, Saint John; and St. Thomas University, Fredericton.
