Charles Sabba

 

presented by Y GALLERY

 

 

For the last 15 years, Sabba has divided his life between being a police officer, a forensic sketch artist and an old fashioned bohemian (“a race of obstinate dreamers for whom art has remained a faith and not a profession” as he explains). As an artist he got particularly involved in investigating crimes related with art. But his research goes beyond statistics and reasons to steal. Y Gallery he will present at VOLTA 6 a series of fingerprint drawings on FBI and New Jersey police department fingerprint cards.
