JBK Ransú

JBK Ransú (b. 1967) studied at the Akademie voor Beeldend Kunst and the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. Perpetual patterns, geometric abstractions and company brands join equally in his art. As art historian Halldór Björn Rúnolfsson writes, JBK Ransú’s “painting is not only innovative in his own right, but…also casts unexpected light on the art that it stems from. His work proves yet again that painting is above all a meditation in visual clothing. Seen in this perspective, his visual references are not just ironic but poignant. They give an insight into art history, while at the same time offering a window to the products of his own creativity.”
