Giant Oil Paintings of Instagram-Famous Pigeon by Belgian Artist Adele Renault

Renault6Renault7

Belgian painter Adele Renault’s large-scale portraits are impressive enough on their own. However, the story behind the subject of her latest series (currently on view at Havas Annex in Chicago) is worth noting. Artist George Keaton and photographer Mariah Naella found an egg on their kitchen counter after workers accidentally destroyed a pigeon nest while fixing their windows. The egg started hatching and before they knew it the couple was raising a little bird. Even after being released back into the wild, the pigeon remained a fixture in the couple’s neighbourhood, and his development featured prominently on Instagram where Renault has since drawn inspiration.

I like that these verge on photorealism but still have a unique style to them. Check out more images below!

Dywane MonoNeon Thomas Jr. plays music to the exact tune of random internet videos, everything from stand up comedy sets to scenes from famous films. People like this are what I love most about the Internet.

To really get a sense for what I’m talking about watch this video of an angry grandpa destroying a PS4 accompanied by music from MonoNeon below.
