Erik Salin & Géraldine Morin

Erik Salin & Gèraldine Morin are two French artists, husband and wife in life, famous for their colorful and exquisitely finished sculptures which reproduce, in unusual shapes and supports, the logos of the most luxurious brands.

Petrol cans designed by Louis Vuitton, Chanel capsules and shopping bags, rigorously Hermès orange, which in a subversion of common logic, transform objects from everyday life into art, not even particularly interesting ones. Who cares about an old gas can? Or a nondescript headache capsule? However, just add the right logos and the object in question is transformed into a wonderful masterpiece.

Erik Salin & Gèraldine Morine recover the lesson of the great masters of Arte Povera, bringing simple materials and work objects (precisely jerry cans) into art and combines it, in an explosive mix, with the teachings of pop art, transforming them into icons thanks to the adding the logo.

Technically they make use of all the most important forms of expression of classical art; painting, drawing, acrylic, watercolors and trompe l'oeil. They mix them, overlap them and combine them with the long experience of a professional painter.

In fact, before dedicating himself completely to art, Erik Salin was one of the most renowned and esteemed French painters, just think that Harley Davidson only wanted him. Gèraldine, who has always been an artist, is the one who understood the artistic potential of her husband's talent.

And so, initially, she created and he executed. Then, little by little, Erik also began to imagine and create works that were only his own. Today, everyone signs their own works, even if they all share an unmistakable style, the ability to dose and modulate colour. In their sculptures the perfection of the colors, the application of the enamel and the finishing is truly of a high level.

Erik and Gèraldine's works, innovative, modern and contemporary, please the eye and manage to make us reflect without being pedantic, creating a profound link between the history of art and our society.

Exhibited in the most prestigious galleries in the world, this creative couple is a regular presence at the most important international fairs.

Their studio-showroom, between the sea and the hills of Southern France, is a fascinating industrial building where, truly, all the souls of this eclectic artist can be felt.

Each creation is unique, numbered and signed.
