  • Valentin Ranger

Valentin Ranger was born in 1992 in Paris. He currently lives and works between Paris and London. After training in theatre, he continued his artistic exploration at the Beaux-Arts in Paris and the Royal College of Art in London.


Through his drawings, paintings, 3D films and sculptural installations, Valentin Ranger deploys a dreamlike world in constant mutation, like the human body which he makes his main object of study. In abundant, almost saturated decors, or in rooms traversed at 360°, the artist stages hybrid characters and cellular forms that vibrate to the pulsations of an
indeterminate organism. From one medium to another, he thus writes the epic of a community where marginal or invisible populations – sexual and gender minorities – build together new forms of solidarity.
