Influences, references and inspiration:
Renan, in his very wide portfolio, has been part among other projects of illustrations for children’s books, large format panels, street art and fabric print.
Still a very young artist, Renan has made presence in International art exhibitions, like
Hatos Gallery in Tokyo,
Hellion Gallery in Portland and
Artistik Rezo Gallery in Paris.
"At first I
was particularly interested in small scale drawings crafted with a magnifying glass, a diamont piece on a copper plate.
Currently I enjoy large scale painting. Getting out of my atelier to work on a wall in the streets
has been very rewarding.”
