Renaud Muraire explores religious iconography


Renaud Muraire has continuously investigated themes of identity, connection, and transcendence.

In his latest series of paintings, he pays homage to traditional religious iconography, which throughout history has served as a cornerstone of human existence, providing guidance, comfort and a sense of belonging.

To honour this rich heritage, Renaud Muraire breathes new life into saintly figures and biblical scenes with a contemporary aesthetic. The fusion of ancient symbolism with vibrant colours and youthful imagery creates a harmonious dialogue between the past and the present, spirituality and modern understanding, and encourages reflection on our identities, hopes and relationships in the ever-changing tapestry of human existence. In this setting, people from all walks of life can find resonance and belonging, reflect on their own spiritual journey, and foster a deeper understanding of our shared humanity.

Renaud Muraire’s approach is non-religious, but aims to trigger a dialogue, a contemplation of the ever-evolving human journey in all it’s complexity.

Born in Nice, France, he lives and works in Paris.
