  • French , 1990

  • Bio

    Valérian Lenud , or Valé, is a French artist based in Mexico City after over a decade of travel. During this time, the artist has developed a style that combines figurative compositions with pop-graffiti aesthetics. He creates both murals in urban environments and works on canvas.

    His work is constructed with numerous layers of hand-cut stencils, painted with a mix of aerosol, brushes, palette knives and markers. Within this practice, he combines chaotic shapes, multicolored backgrounds and subtle shading to create captivating portraits.

    Lenud’s work contrasts pop culture iconography with the imagery of local culture to portray the multifaceted identity of socities he encountered during his trips. The juxtaposition of the grey of the streets with intense colours aims to pay tribute to urban art, while showcasing the vibrancy of life and presenting a mirror to our common humanity.

    Valérian Lenud has collaborated with numerous galleries, social projects, festivals, and commercial brands. He has also been covered by many publishers such as Forbes and has received commissions from firms like Jaguar Land Rover and Montana Colors.

    The artist currently lives and works in Mexico City.
