He studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art where he received his BFA. He frequently paints his subjects from life. With influences like Nicole Eisenman, Jenny Seville and Marlene Dumas, Sabau has a penchant for the exploration of unconventional beauty. He finds inspiration in the human condition and gravitates toward physically striking subjects. While referencing traditional portraiture and classical nodes of beauty, he refrains from idealizing, instead finding beauty in divergence. Reveling in depthful minimalism, Sabau's work engages the imagination through omission.
