      Claude Viallat was born in 1936 in Nîmes, where he lives and works.

      He has always worked in large-formats. Working on unstretched canvas, he deconstructs the traditional concept of a work of art. Pushing the boundaries of convention, Viallat explores fresh formal ideas. The trademark feature of these vast canvases is the endless repetition of his signature shape which appears as a sort of fusion, the metamorphosis of a woman’s body and that of a bull. This form may just as well represent the daughter of Minos and Pasiphaë, as be the self-generated offspring of a canvas arena, a corrida opposing the painter and his painting in face to face combat.
