Steeven Salvat

Steeven Salvat is a French artist from Menton, born in 1990, who lives and works in Paris. Enthusiastic about drawing, nature, science, and history, he creates artworks with a hatching method, utilizing black ink, Rotring pens, a lot of lines, and numerous hours.
Influenced by the work of masters like Albrecht Dürer, Gustave Doré, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Molitz, and Moebius, he pays very close attention to method and details. His favored tool, the Rotring pen, enables him to acquire a rendering close to inscribing but often with a touch of modernity. A precise and fragile work that applauds the passing of time, where each line serves as a count.
Steeven Salvat’s targets highlight the duality, specifically between nature and mechanics, in works that remind biologist engravings of the 18th century. The creatures to which he offers life, line after line, engage with one-of-a-kind objects, pieces of silver and gold, old masterpieces.
