Emmanuel Jarus (In collaboration with Rudjer)

Emmanuel Jarus was born in 1992 in Regina. He works in a realistic style, creating murals depicting people in everyday situations. Having studied at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto, he uses a variety of mediums in his work, including acrylic, oil and spray paint. He is influenced by more traditional European painters such as Anders Zorn and John Singer Sargent and uses spray paint techniques which mimic those used in oil painting. Jarus has created work in Canada, the USA, Mexico and across Europe. He is based in Toronto, where many of his murals can be found.
