Pierre Louaver was born in Brest, France. He studied at the Beaux Arts de Lille and Paris VII University. He moved to New York in 1980. He was awarded a prestigious one-year studio residency at the Clocktower Gallery, which was part of the PSI International Studio Program. This included exhibitions of his work both at PSI, Long Island City, and the Clocktower Gallery, New York City. Louaver's work has been shown mostly in New York: starting at PSI in 1982, the East Village thru the mid 80's and SoHo thru the 90's. For two years he was an assistant to the French sculptor Bernar Venet. He also worked as a supervisor and project manager for high-end architectural companies in New York. In 2013 Louaver moved to Berlin, had a studio in Neukölln, and resumed exhibiting in Paris, Brussels, Berlin, and Frankfurt/Main. His new career was cut short by his death in 2019.
