A Brief Look: The Art of Joao Ruas

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.
