João Ruas (b. 1981) is a visual artist from São Paulo, Brazil. After graduating with a BA in Graphic Design, he has worked inside studios in the United Kingdom and Brazil before doing primarily personal artwork and exhibitions.

" João Ruas paints a haunting world inhabited by enigmatic figures and regal beasts awash in a maelstrom of mysterious energies. His explorations of the darker realms of the spirit evoke states of emotional turmoil, spiritual hunger and troubled passion. Weaving together history, mythology and cryptic symbolism in a misty dreamscape where twilight is ever at hand and the bounds of gravity seem optional, he describes an ethereal mythos that is somehow deeply personal and disquietingly universal at the same time.
