Featured Artist – Joram Roukes

OK – first off thanks to the new and the existing “followers” of this blog. Over the next few weeks I should be posting a lot more of my own work here, but there’s a lot of other artist’s work I have to share with you. So lets get that out of the way…

This time its Netherlands based Joram Roukes. His stunning oil paintings are like a visual mash-up of Western culture arranged in a collage like display. His works contain graffiti, figures, animals (both alive and dead), car wrecks, anatomical skeletal structures and cartoon-like elements all delivered in a very distinct and unique style.

When I first came across his work I found them kind of unsettling but the more I looked – the more comfortable it became.
