Claude Viallat ©
Viallat Claude, born in Nîmes in 1936, is a contemporary french painter. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Montpellier from 1955 to 1959, then at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1962-63, in Raymond Legueult’s workshop.
In 1966, Claude Viallat adopts a process based on fingerprints, which shall enter into a critical
radical of the lyrical abstraction and geometric (in technique called All-over).
A neutral form is repeated on a free canvas without frame determining the composition of the work. In 1969, he was a founder member of Supports / Surfaces.
In addition to the growing success of its exhibitions in France (at the Pompidou Center in 1982) and abroad (Venice Biennale in 1988), he devoted himself to his work as a teacher in the following art schools: Nice, Limoges, Marseille, Nimes (where he was director for many years), then Paris at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris.
