Metal Techniques

Michel Salerno graduated from Villa Arson. He also received training in locksmithing, brassware, restoration, blacksmithing, fine steel, bronze assembly and cutting. Specializing in metal work, Michel Salerno manages to dexterously combine delicate ancestral know-how with a contemporary vision of the medium.

In his personal approach, he has the habit of confronting the timeless quality of metal with naturalistic forms which emphasize the ephemeral and fragile character of nature. A taste for vanity which also shines through the recurring motif of the mirror. Michel Salerno recently showed his work at Leila Heller Gallery (New York, 2019) and Design Miami (2017).
