Artist(s): Ensemble Reel


Completed: 2023

Fraternal street art duo from France, Ensemble Réel, are known for their elaborate stencil portraits. The two brothers fuse poetry, fatality, passion, and colour in their work, which explores various ethereal themes like poetry, fatality, passion, and chaos.

From their website: “Sublimate a soul in love with freedom and its distrust of others, depict the melancholy of a moment, question each person’s femininity, symbolize the power that lies dormant within oneself, divert classic figures… So many themes strongly inspiring the duo that remains to be found.”
