Jean-Marie Pirot (Trémery,1926) known as Arcabas, a name given by his pupils, is a French contemporary sacred artist.
From 1969 to 1972, he was appointed guest artist by the Canadian government, and was a professor of the University of Ottawa, where he created "l’atelier collectif expérimental". Back to France, he founded the atelier "Éloge de la Main".
Later, he received several demands from the French government and religious institutions. His works can be found in France, Germany, Mexico, Canada or the USA, although he's not a well-known artist. He currently lives in Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse, in Isère.
His works are usually inspired by stories of the Bible.
