Daniel Firman was born in 1966 in Bron, France.
After studying at the Beaux-arts of Saint-Etienne and Angoulême, he became interested in conventional sculpture. Since 1998, he has turned to a unique formal language. His creations are regularly the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions in France and abroad. Daniel Firman now lives and works in Paris.
Daniel Firman’s interest in the physics and energy of the body, in movement and its relationship to space is reflected in his sculptural work, in which the figure recurs in a recurring manner.
Considered each time as a “character”, caught in a choreographic and narrative momentum, the figure is treated in a realistic mode that encourages the viewer to project himself into the work as much as to keep his distance from it. The faces are always hidden, which brings an additional mystery to these characters suspended in time.
