At Daniel Templon gallery until 23rd July 2016

Akey figure of the French art scene, Claude Viallat celebrates his 80th birthday this year. It is the perfect opportunity for Daniel Templon gallery – which is also celebrating its 50th anniversary – to mark the occasion with a colourful show!

A founding member of the French Supports/Surfaces movement, this aficionado, who is adept at the use of free standing canvasses, emancipated himself over time from the avant-gardist group and devoted himself to pure painting. And what a marvel! The paintings presented in both spaces of the Parisian gallery were made in the 1980’s. Unceasingly, the Nîmois artist drapes his recognisable “bean” patterns across the pieces of tarpaulins, banners or other seating chairs, endlessly varying their density and colour.

Ollé virtuoso!
