João Ruas has been hard at work for the past year on 'YORE'. This exhibit will mark his first major solo showcase and we are thrilled to be able to host it for him.
'YORE' will feature over 20 new paintings, 5 new etchings, 3 stunning works on ostrich eggs and more to be shared soon. João arrives into LA this evening and will begin work on a mural for the exhibit on Monday. We're excited to share that we'll be publishing a limited edition catalog for the show as well as a limited edition giclee print. Please note we'll also have some copies on hand of João's limited edition 'Minion' book that was released in limited quantities at this past July's San Diego ComiCon.
Artist Statement on 'YORE':
Selfishness, complexes, everyday issues and anxiety are not exclusive of our times. It seems obvious but our unconscious arrogant adolescent attitude towards the people that walked on the same grounds we live on, tries to prove the contrary.
Yore is an ode to echoes, to beliefs and lost truths waiting to be discovered.
