Elephant Man by Joao Ruas, 2009, watercolour, graphite, collage & gouache

Joao Ruas (previously featured here) is the miraculously talented love child of James Jean from whom he inherited that breathtakingly epic and mythical artistic grandeur and Esao Andrews who seems to have infused him with a curious penchant for cold reddened noses and meandering liplines. And as you can tell, it's a great mix!

Joao's new show Inner Myth Pt. 1 opened at L.A.'s ThinkSpace the other day and will be on show through June 5.
