Groningen, Netherlands based artist Joram Roukes‘ energetic canvases have an incredible liveliness that draws us into each surreal world that he constructs. He works in predominantly large scale oil paintings that are reflections of everyday life situations, observed, filtered and reassembled in a collage like way. The resulted paintings pose a fragmented yet cohesive view on today’s society and human behaviour.
