Demonstrating Artist Program: Colin Ruff

About the Artist

Colin Ruff received a BFA in 2009 followed by a MA at Minnesota State University Mankato in 2011 before moving to Colorado to complete his MFA at Colorado State University in 2016. Through mixed media drawing and collage, he explores the effects experiences have on our perception and creation of reality. By deconstructing and reconfiguring the symbols and Iconography of American mass media from the 1940s-1970s, he seeks to destabilize the original intent and message of the images to create a dialogue. Colin is currently a Drawing Artist and Educator in the Denver area working between FRCC and Denver University.
