Hélène Drénou

After studying graphic design in France, Hélène Drénou arrived in Brussels in 2013 to join the screen printing course at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Towards the end of her studies she started to experiment with ceramics alongside her other practices. She fell in love with this medium which allowed her to get out of the image and to create her objects which will be an integral part of her future still lifes when she will start oil painting a few years later.


Hélène Drénou is interested in the notion of multiple, of series, her works come to life next to each other. Her practice is based on a colourful universe. Working spontaneously, she plays with representations of interiors, forms extracted and reworked until they become a motif bordering on the abstract.
