Adele Renault is an artist with a gift for representing what most people find mundane. From pigeons to people, she focuses her art on realistic depictions of ordinary city residents on large-scale canvases or murals.
Adele grew up on a farm in the Belgian Ardennes, where her musical family encouraged her to travel and discover the world for herself. Renault graduated in 2010 from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels.
Following her instinct and her desire to paint, Adele continues to live her vocation throughout the world. Through her personal exhibitions, the United States marks a decisive step in her artistic journey. The diversity of humanity and birdlife in American cities became the fertile ground for her pictorial aspirations. Her interest in people and pigeons stems from the fact that, no matter what city, they can be found in abundance. This makes her work immediately relatable. In October 2019, in the exhibition “Crossing Lines” at PDP Gallery, Adele presents a series of portraits of the community that surrounds her studio based in West Adams, LA.
