Joram Roukes, ‘West Side Story’, 2015, KIRK Gallery

Dutch artist Joram Roukes is born in 1983, his is from Groningen, The Netherlands.
His large scale oil paintings are observations and representations of modern day society as well as human behavior.
Roukes' artworks on canvas and his wallpaintings are characterised by both irony and a more serious hue. This juxtaposition evokes confusion in which the viewer is challenged to make sense of it all.
Joram’s energetic canvases have an incredible liveliness that draws us into each surreal world that he constructs. In moments of great vigour and spontaneity, Joram’s brushwork recalls the intensity of the abstract expressionists’ emotive mark-making.
