João Ruas

Country Brazil
Artist Website: http://feral-kid.com

Born in Brazil, 28-year old artist João Paulo Alvares Ruas was still a young child when his interest for visual art started to grow. Comic books were his first bridge to lines and colors, during high school much of his time was devoted to creative thinking due to the almost alternative education institution he studied under. Later, he took Design as his choice in University.

After a three year stint in London, João went back to his home town, Sao Paulo, where he works and lives.
