À propos de VALÉRIAN

Valérian Lenud, or Valé, is a French artist born in 1990. Now based in Mexico City after a decade of travel, Valé has developed an aesthetic that combines figurative compositions with pop-graffiti styling, both as murals and canvas artworks. With a strong compassion and belief in human spirit, his works can be seen as a mirror to our common humanity. Within this practice he combines chaotic shapes on multicolored backgrounds and subtle shading stencils to achieve captivating portraits. Valérian’s work contrasts recognizable pop-iconography with local culture imagery in his works, in order to portray the multifaceted identity of each culture he encounters during his travels around the world in more than thirty countries. Valérian collaborates with galleries, social projects, festivals and brands. His artwork can be found in France, Monaco, New-York, Norway, Netherlands, Spain, México, Argentina, Chile and Colombia. To name some places, he exhibits in Carré d’Artistes in New-York and Amsterdam, Baga06 in México; with Galerie Saint Martin in Saint-Tropez or Courchevel and Galerie Sonia Monti in Paris. He has been covered by Forbes, StreetArt NYC, Konbini, C’est de l’Art, Cultura Colectiva and commissioned for projects with Jaguar Land Rover, Montana Colors, Comex or Santander.
