Artist Spotlight: Arthur Maslard a.k.a. Ratur

A selection of work by artist Arthur Maslard a.k.a. Ratur. Born in Le Havre, France and currently based in Vancouver, Ratur grew up with a sense of closeness to nature — a connection that has been the driving force behind his work. Ratur channeled his creativity through drawing and graffiti from an early age, eventually training in graphic design before turning his focus to canvas and murals. He often depicts bodies staged in dramatic poses, humans faced with a nature in ruin, mythical figures, and symbols of perpetual rebirth. Through the juxtaposition of classical still life themes and abstract shapes, Ratur challenges viewers to think anew about nature and all of its beauty. Check out more of his work below!
