Sao Paulo based visual artist Joao Ruas creates cloaked moments of fantastical histories. His figures, built out of comforted shadows are apparitions, ghosts. Monsters and maidens.
His drawings are dream-like fragments of unknown stories. They have weight. Depth. Beautiful chalk and graphite clouds.
Ruas has done illustrations for Playboy, Wired, and Mondo. Here’s a brief look at some of his work.
