Biography / Adele

Pigeons and people is what sounds like the sarcastic answer to the question of what urban spaces are made of is the focus of Adele Renault's photorealistic portraits. Her works are found across the globe in the form of murals via spray paint and by paint on canvas. Adele’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Amsterdam-based street artist Adele Renault finds her subjects on the streets: pigeons and humans. While this might sound a tad pedestrian at first glance, Adele's subjects find their true emotional impact in her photorealistic painting style. Adele Renault’s stunning depictions surprise with the often-overlooked details of life: the multitude of colours in a dove’s feathers. Deep wrinkles in a strangers face. Ephemeral expressions, of both human and ornithological moments are captured in all their emotional significance on giant murals or small covers.
