François Réau is a French artist, born in 1978. He lives and works in Paris.

He studied art in Poitiers, first at the Regional School of Fine Arts and then at the School of Applied Arts. He has been the subject of numerous exhibitions in France and abroad. His work can be found in several public collections such as the FRAC Alsace, the Abbaye Royale de Fontevraud, the SMAK in Ghent and the Musée Saint Roch in Issoudun. His works have been exhibited at Lille3000, Mons 2015 European Capital of Culture, the Guoyi Art Museum in Beijing and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The Musée de l’Hospice Saint Roch in Issoudun is devoting a solo exhibition to him in 2019, after which two of his works will enter the museum’s collections. That same year, he will be exhibiting at the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, another heritage and historical site. In 2020 he showed a very large drawing at the Kunsthale Charlottenborg in Copenhagen and in 2021 he presented his work in several places, such as the Domaine de Chaumont sur Loire, the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, which invited him to work on a permanent work, and the Musée Jenisch Vevey in Switzerland for the exhibition XXL, le dessin en grand. He is preparing several projects for 2022, notably at the Domaine de Kerguéhennec, at the Drawing Lab Paris, for the Centre Monuments Nationaux and at the Fondation Bullukian in Lyon.

After a solo exhibition in 2022, Clavé Fine Art continues to showcase its work at the fairs and exhibitions in which it participates.
