Silence Painting is a set of monochrome paintings inspired by the phenomenon of the blue hour: a moment in the day when the sky is an electric blue and nature is completely silent.

Born in Avignon in 1983 and living and working in Paris, Dimitri Mallet situates his research on the borderlines between various physical aspects of cognition and of social construction. Frequently referencing minimalism and conceptual heritage, he enters into continual mental dialogue with his audience. In this dialogue, the artist is the one shining a light on paradoxes and inversing the syntaxes of common perception and of the awareness of the self as part of the whole.
His work has notably been exhibited at the Val-de-Marne Contemporary Art Museum, at the Villeurbanne Contemporary Art Institute in collaboration with the Association for the International Diffusion of French Art, at the Théâtre de Privas Gallery and Contemporary Art Space in tune with the Lyon Biennale of Contemporary Art, at the Atelier Calder, at Art Cologne, and so on. Mallet often collaborates with the Atelier Arcay in Paris and in 2020, he took part in the Manifesta 13 European biennale, Parallels of the South, in Marseille and Nice.
In April 2022, he and architect Sergio Carvalho inaugurated a project in the Ellergronn nature reserve in Luxembourg as part of Esch 2022: European Capital of Culture.
