Ruan Hoffmann

a much celebrated and discussed artist from johannesburg, ruan hoffmann is, foremost, a painter. he also happens to paint on ceramics. his vessels and tiles are a rather unsuspecting backdrop to his provocative iconography and whip-smart one liners. armed with a paint brush and the ability to startle with a single stroke, hoffmann’s works are potent. but it is his use of ceramics that gives both the viewer and hoffman an additional dimension in which to encounter his art - hoffmann says that what he likes about ceramics is the surprise element.
