Claude Viallat is known for his contributions to the canon of modern painting through experimentation with texture, use of unstretched recycled fabrics, and mastery of color. A founding member of the Supports/Surfaces movement, Viallat studied at the École des Beaux-arts in Montpellier, France (1955–59), and the École des Supérieure des Beaux-arts, Paris (1962–63). While there, Viallat was exposed to the work of fellow artists such as Michel Parmentier and became interested in American Abstract Expressionist painters, above all Jackson Pollock. After completing his studies in Paris, Viallat leaned into abstraction and began experimentation with the formal elements of painting. A fundamental tenet of Viallat’s oeuvre is abandonment of the stretcher, allowing all kind of displays in the exhibition space and the use of materials such as draped canvas, tarpaulin, and recycled textiles such as sheets, rugs, curtains, and nets.

From 1966, the year he invented forms, up until today, one main characteristic distinguishes Claude Viallat's work: its complete freedom from aesthetic commitment. The 1970's offer Claude Viallat the possibility to develop his formal vocabulary further. Going beyond the systematization of his Supports/Surfaces years, the artist returns to innovative textures and materials. Tracing shapes, he uses strategies to distort them, superposing up to five canvases before painting them: it is the "bad painting" period. This brief moment in his career opened up on years of blossoming and deepening of his artistic researches.

These years demonstrate a real variety in his construction of forms. The latters are no longer solely flat, like in the works of the "Surface" years, but sometimes made of a myriad of kaleidoscopic colors. Unprimed canvases are used as blank space and forms, the key thread running through this decade, are delimited by colors. While keeping the systematization of his formal vocabulary, Viallat progressively frees himself from his monochromatic practice. The forms, painted on different panels, also throw the composition in new directions and enliven the patterns. The typical Supports/Surfaces grid progressively disappears. It is also a very productive period during which he pays several tributes to Matisse and Manet. These creations are probably among his most touching and accomplished.

Claude Viallat's work questions the practice of painting putting colors on a flawless surface by applying colors on a material surface, which existence itself interferes with colours. Using dirty and worn-out canvases makes it harder to achieve "a beautiful painting". The artist gives value to the underlying and preexisting color and tries to enhance it through his work. Vlieseline, tondi, doors, diptychs, and open canvases are some of the supports on which he playfully goes around or fills up forms with vivid and bright colors. Viallat dances with the canvas blank space to create unique vibrations and wave-like effects.
