The Art Of Feral Kid

The heavily designed decorative elements of Alphonse Mucha, the graphical flair of Gustav Klimt and the ethereal style of James Jean all come to mind when I look at the work of Joao Ruas, a Sao Paolo based artist who has made an impression on me over the years. His work is truly beautiful, combining the best of both digital and traditional mediums to create a style that emphasizes both schools of thought.

I really love his choice of subject matter, with his work typically featuring surreal creatures inhabiting the same realm as his haunted figures, plenty of symbolism and unorthodox, dreamlike color schemes. It's thought provoking, beautiful work that channels something truly personal, yet relatable at the same time. Check out more of his work after the break, and enjoy the healthy dose of inspiration.
