Born in The Hague, The Netherlands. Started as a professional artist in 1996.
The first few years he mainly worked for cinema’s and theaters, painting large billboards advertising new movies and theater productions. From this followed jobs doing murals, lettering and signs for shops, illustrations and cartoons for magazines.
He makes acrylic and oil paintings in a realistic or surrealistic style and sometimes like to make use of perspective tricks. When Ruben came in contact with street painting he could use this for anamorphic(3D) street art.
Street art is an artistic challenge and a performance. The artist is out in the open and has to create in a limited time. The art is a living illusion that fades as soon as it is created.
