Joao Ruas has been a busy man. In between releasing new prints and original Fables artwork on his new site, and preparing for his solo show with us next May, he has somehow found the time to create work for a couple of other shows as well as take on some very special projects that shall see the light of day soon.
The first of which is a group show in NYC this weekend that LeBasse Projects has put together to profile some of their regulars in addition to guest artists Joao and Mia.
The ‘Go East’ show will feature four new works from Joao (including “Haunted No. 20” shown above). If in NYC this weekend, don’t miss your chance to view his work in person. See below for a couple add’l sneak peeks from NYC.
Joao is also currently putting the finishing touches on two new works that will be going with us down to Aqua Art Maimi this December during Art Basel as part of Thinkspace‘s special ‘Futurity’ exhibition.
Aqua Art Miami – Wynwood Booth #25 – Thinkspace 42 NE 25th Street (at North Miami Ave)
Dec. 3rd – Dec. 6th
After Miami, he’ll be finishing up a piece for our endangered species benefit coming up this January before returning his full attention to his solo show coming up this May in our project room. Past that, look for some very special news to be announced soon from Joao – he’s really moving and shaking things right now and there’s much in the works for this emerging artist.
In addition to the prints that Ruas recently issued on his site, we too will be publishing a limited edition giclee print from Joao in time for the holidays (he’s currently signing them and preparing to ship them back to the States). A pre-order for the prints will be posted this weekend on our website in the ‘prints’ section.

This is the first major west coast solo show ever for Witz – DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT!!!
WK Interact is coming to Los Angeles next weekend – get excited! ‘How To Blow Yourself Up’ opens on Sat, November 7th at Subliminal Projectsout in Echo Park.
Unlike his solo show in New York at Jonathan LeVine earlier in the year, which showcased his huge motion portrait series, I’m told this exhibit will feature a range of smaller, mixed media works like his popular skateboard series (example shown below).
More details to follow soon. Fingers crossed he graces LA with some of his amazing street work!!!
