Ruan Van Der Heever

Ruan van der Heever is a contemporary artist whose work captures the essence of neo-expressionism and abstract art. Despite only beginning his journey into the art world recently, he has already garnered a loyal following among collectors who appreciate his unique style and raw emotion.

Born in Boksburg, South Africa, Ruan was raised by hardworking parents who instilled in him a strong work ethic and a drive to succeed. Over the past five years, he has explored various creative avenues, including music, poetry, and digital art. However, it is painting that has truly captured his heart.

Inspired by the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Picasso, and Francis Bacon, Ruan's work is a reflection of his state of mind and emotions. His use of oil sticks, oil pastels, spray paint, acrylic paint, tape, pencils, and markers creates a multi-layered effect that draws the viewer in and evokes a sense of vulnerability.
