Ruan Huisamen

Ruan Huisamen was born in 1991 in Cape Town, South Africa. He is largely self-taught, having never received any formal education or training in the traditional techniques of painting and drawing. Most of his earlier works were created using graphite pencil, but he has since transitioned to charcoal based works. After returning from a three-month apprenticeship under Louis Jansen van Vuuren he began working as an artist.

In addition to having been nominated for the Absa L’ Atelier, Sasol New Signatures, SPI National Portrait and Sanlam Vuleka awards, his works are also held in private collections in Spain, France, England, Canada and the United States.
