Adele Renault is a classically trained painter that focuses on smaller details that are sometimes overlooked. With her realistic portraits, she is able to capture the detailed expressions of her subjects. However, her love is really with pigeons. Her stunning pigeon paintings and murals showcased the real beauty of the birds, proving that they are more than just a pest in the cities.

Renault paints them against start backdrops of white, black, or gold that draw attention to the details that make them special.

“Her subjects are pictured as photographed,” her website reads, “yet are then isolated from their context, enlarged and flooded in sunlight.”

Her artworks can be found in public spaces, galleries, and a book called Feathers and Faces.
