Paul Ressencourt and Simon Roché met during their studies in Fine Arts. Originally, one specialised in creation, graphic arts and urban arts, and the other in arts and technique, however they quickly found a common passion for drawing and street art. Intervening together in public space since 2010, they cover the walls of our cities with their drawing, murals and ephemeral exhibitions. Through their art, Murmure explore themes in a fun and poetic way in order to share their vision of the world. Childhood, the homeless, consumer society, new technologies, and the environment are among their favourite subjects. Murmure’s studio work is at the centre of each street-based project. Working with four hands, they draw mainly with graphite pencil to obtain a profound depth in shading and a realistic rendering. It is in the studio that each project is developed before seeing the light of the day in the street through the creation of a scale 1 drawing or painting. Installed in the street, their artworks interact with the urban environment. The choice of space and the wall they will be put on, both in terms of its materials and its colours, become a narrative complement to the drawing. Time, weather, or human degradation come to perfect the work, making each one unique. Constantly in search of new forms of expression both through the technique used and by the medium chosen, Murmure unveil their works in galleries, in the street, and in monumental murals.
