Renderfruit

Creative Director & Visual Artist

Eerie, futuristic, multi-layered and surreal, Renderfruit’s work intricately weaves through a tapestry of profound concepts, exploring the enigmatic realms of the human body and its dark mysteries, the sensitive chaos of nature, and a contemplation of what she terms as post-physical elements: a fragrance lingering in the air, the resonance of a chosen word, the silhouette of a shoulder, the blueprint of a plan. Meticulously curated fragments, both consciously and subconsciously, within the recesses of our minds after every interaction.
