Jean-Daniel Salvat

His story

Born in Aurillac in 1969. Jean-Daniel Salvat graduated from Beaux Arts in Nimes in 1992, under Claude Viallat’s supervision. He moved to Paris in 1993 until 1994, then New York from 1995-2005 and came back to France in 2006. 

Salvat has been developing work called Post Support surface, this term was coined by the art critic Serge Hartman. Just like his seniors, he questions the formal identity of a canvas, its construction, its reading.By painting on transparent flexible vinyl, which is then mounted on a frame, he erases any traces of paint and depicts a smooth and shining image. His work is like a facsimile, a vague identity which questions the reading codes of a painting, as he explained during an interview with Elisabeth Couturier on France Culture, a program which contributed to his fame in 2008, on a national level.

Jean-Daniel Salvat is present in numerous private collections in France, Europe and in the USA. He has been participating in major contemporary art fairs around Europe for 15 years.

Reverse paintings

“I paint on the reverse side of a transparent vinyl (then mounted on stretchers). Any tactile sign is, this way, erased from the work. No pictorial matter remains, just a mirror surface. I give the painting an ambiguous identity by intending it to work just as a facsimile of itself.”
