Contemporary art with a serious “Graffiti” touch.
Born in 1986, Renaud REINE bathed in family drawing from a young age and made his first approaches to urban cultures in the early 2000s. It was a time when while training as a wood sculptor, he began to travel through France and neighboring countries to affix his mark under his graffiti artist name HOMEK.
Since 2012, he has crossed European borders in order to share his art in the streets and in schools in disadvantaged areas, most often with children. He also undertakes to offer an artistic workshop once a year at a reception center near Marrakech in Morocco.
With a large number of wall graffiti to his credit and an important “pop-cartoon” period, his style evolves into a more graphic and contemporary approach.
Returning to the work of the letter, making it dynamic and abstract, in warm settings that can recall his travels, or on the contrary sometimes in bright colors reminiscent of his child's soul. The tears evoke the different scenes of an illustrated story. It thus varies figurative patterns, colored tints, soft gradations and the atmosphere of “tagged” walls like a sort of patchwork.
