Murmure is composed of Paul Ressencourt (born 1981) and Simon Roche (born 1983), both from Caen, France. Since 2010, they have been working in public space, covering the walls of the city with drawn characters and ephemeral exhibitions. The artists create unique and poetic scenes from different canvases and their study of drawing in Fine Arts allows them to master different media for their works, such as charcoal or graphite on black stone paper. Inspired by artists such as Bansky, Pejac, Dran or Ernest Pignon Ernest, their black and white drawings offer a contemporary and incisive look on our natural environment destroyed by man and industry. The place chosen to paste a work or the smallest details of his drawing bring a new dimension to his work and another level of reading in the eyes of the viewer.
'GAR-BAGE' is his most recent series of works, based on the dreamlike and poetic representation of the garbage bag in today's world. Symbol of a planet disfigured by mass consumption, the garbage bag has invaded our daily life, the environment; it has become omnipresent. A whale, a pigeon or even a young couple; these themes exposed in the street or during festivals allow Murmure to raise the spectator's responsibility in front of current ecological disasters and to raise the question of man's relationship with new technologies, but also with himself.
