We have featured the very talented João Ruas (aka Feral Kid) before on the site. The São Paulo-based visual artist has continued to impress with his dark and mysterious work and has several new sketchbook and standalone pieces. (via emptykingdom)

 

Collector Amanda Erlanson is spot-on in her description of his work: "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. "
