RENE IS A 2015 GRADUATE FROM CITY & GUILDS, LONDON
Rene is of Latino background and was born in Montreal, Canada, the son of political refugees. He moved to Costa Rica where he started out as a graffiti artist before travelling to London in 2012 where he now lives and works.
Rene paints dream-like natural landscapes with colourful bursts of trees, flora and eerie skies. His pictures depict animal and human characters. Deer, feline and especially the fox, are used to reference living as an outsider navigating an adopted environment. Vibrant spaces span tropical forests and European woodlands, sometimes showing hints of manmade folly architecture, often rendered with a playful other-worldly feel. Myth, folklore and allegories from different cultures underpin his storytelling.
Rene is available to commission with prices for small work ranging from £1,500 - £4,000. Larger work £5,000+.
