Sometimes when I’m looking up an artist bio I bump into a blurb that’s just so spot-on I couldn’t describe an artists’ work better myself. So just sit back, relax, and read this poetic description of Brazilian artist Joao Ruas’s work by Amanda Erlanson before you enjoy his fantastic pieces:
“João Ruas paints a haunting world inhabited by enigmatic figures and regal beasts awash in a maelstrom of mysterious energies. His explorations of the darker realms of the spirit evoke states of emotional turmoil, spiritual hunger and troubled passion. Weaving together history, mythology and cryptic symbolism in a misty dreamscape where twilight is ever at hand and the bounds of gravity seem optional, he describes an ethereal mythos that is somehow deeply personal and disquietingly universal at the same time. “
Thanks for reading and have a lovely weekend!
