As a visual artist, theatre maker and author he has created a highly personal world with its own rules and laws, as well as its own characters, symbols, and recurring motifs. Fabre has earned the recognition of a worldwide audience with public works in sites of historical importance, such as his latest installation in Antwerp Cathedral. He has presented large-scale solo exhibitions in prestigious museums such as the Louvre in Paris and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.

Incontrare un artista universale', at Musei Capitolini in Rome, and together with Francesca Campana Comparini the exhibiiton 'Jackson Pollock, La figura della furia', in Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.
