Her love and devotion for plants were not planted overnight, but Adele Renault states she focuses her artistry on realistic depictions of ordinary city residents, on canvas as well as massive murals.

This combo is what makes her artwork so unique and cherished all over the world. Learn more about the inspiration behind "Plantasia", her newest series of hand-painted leafy murals, surpassing and exceeding realistic schemes no one has ever seen before, of course, involving plants.

Take a Look Into "Plantasia", Adele's Newest Leafy Mural

Plantasia, the leafy mural that has caught the walker's attention, consists of smaller works on canvas and large-scale public pieces, magnifying the leaves from dandelions, banana trees, stinging nettle, and other green beauties. Renault has made sure to glorify and praise the plant specimens to reveal the intricate vein networks of each while paying great attention to the colors and detail to make the leafy murals look as real as possible.



The magnified leafy murals will cause a complete shock to your eyes, as people say they've never experienced something looking so close to a real plant as the ones painted on the murals. 

The Inspiration Behind the Leafy Murals

Although she’s spent the last few years painting feathered murals because of her love for birds, Renault also expresses an intense love for nature and her leafy murals surely show it. Many ask where did this love for plants come from? Adele shares that this passion was basically inherited by her mother.

All of her work begins with the first and most important step: photographing her houseplants and those she encounters in the wild. Adele expresses that she gets very excited whenever she sees beams of sunlight hitting leaves in a certain way, making the green in her leafy murals seem translucent. Can you guess her current green favorite? The prickly pear cactus is what takes her on her favorite naturistic ride at the time!
