Ruan Jooste

South African 1988- 

Ruan Jooste celebrates the quirks and idiosyncrasies of our shared commonalities, memories, and nostalgia in a riot of fun, colour, and wit. He boldly reminds us that there is a uniquely South African joy that binds and connects us. There is a charm, sass, and attitude in the artist's work of fictional portraits that allude to magic realism, but with a local, urban grit. With many of the artworks employing principles of classic portraiture, there is also an unapologetic self-assurance and playfulness that grounds the work in the present. His composition and pose at once acknowledge the Classic tradition but simultaneously embrace the ‘selfie’ culture of today.
