Valérian, or Valé Stencil, is a french street artist born in 1990. Now based in Mexico City after a decade of travel, Valé has developed an aesthetic that combines figurative stencil compositions with pop-graffiti styling, both as murals and canvas artworks. With a strong compassion and belief in human spirit, his works can be seen as a mirror to our common humanity.
Combining various techniques, his work is primarily constructed with numerous layers of hand-cut stencils, painted with a mix of brushes, aerosol cans and markers. Within this practice he combines chaotic shapes on multicolored backgrounds and subtle shading stencils to achieve a sense of photorealism.
