Saturday Inspiration: Joao Ruas

Joao Ruas needs little introduction, his primarily figurative paintings speak louder than anything I could write in form of praise. To say his content is interesting and his technique is quality would be massive understatements. One of the many elements of his work that stand out to me are his color choices.. for example above, the calculated use of red within a monochromatic piece, gives it life and mystery.. it doesn't let go of the viewer. Enjoy.. wussies.

  1. this is awesome. even though the figures are hardly dramatic, the scene itself is just so powerful. thanks for the post.
