Ruben Sanchez

"A journey with no destination"


Biography

Born and raised in Madrid, adopted by Barcelona and Dubai in the past years, Sánchez is a self-taught artist with a strong, colorful graphic style that resonates through all of his projects.

Coming from the cultural worlds of graffiti and skateboarding, Sánchez learned by himself graphic design and illustration. In the mid 2000’s he mixed the techniques and influences from each field, adding new skills on wood, resins, etc with a continue self-education in arts, where he started translating his own vision onto canvases, murals, reclaimed wood, sculptures or installations.
His artworks can be found all around the globe, part of arts festivals, humanitarian projects or international exhibitions. If you dissect his work you will find the avoidance of symmetry and perfect proportions, vibrant color palettes where you can depict different elements and characters in fragile balance. Visual tension, chain reactions and connectivity, always surrounded by a Mediterranean vibe, in this journey with no destination.
