Ruan
Hoffmann



Born in South Africa, Ruan Hoffmann currently lives and works in The Netherlands.

Using ceramic earthenware as his preferred medium, Hoffmann molds familiar objects such as plates, containers and tiles into willful, irregular and misshapen forms. Adorning the plates with a vast array of images and text that can be unapologetically political and confrontational, the work expresses the artist’s unedited observations on life’s experiences.

Widely exhibited, Hoffmann’s works are also in a number of international collections including the South African National Gallery, The Frans Masereel Centrum, Belgium and the Museo de Arte Moderno, Dominican Republic, Apple and more.
