Rubén Martín de Lucas
Spanish, b. 1977
In 2002 Ruben graduated as a Civil Engineer from the the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain. After a 4-month wandering trip through India, he put engineering aside to devote himself entirely to art.
In 2001 he becomes one of the five founders of Boa Mistura, a multidisciplinary artistic collective with roots in urban art with which Ruben works until 2015, carrying out projects in South Africa, Spain, Norway, Germany, Algeria, Mexico and Brazil.
In January 2015, he began his solo career developing a body of work whose focus is “landscape and associated behaviour ¨. Studying subjects such as the progressive reduction of space for wildlife, overpopulation on a limited planet, the artificial nature of borders, the liquid nature of the concept of nation or the dichotomy between industrial agriculture and natural agriculture.
Projects that make up a committed and critical discourse that encourages us to reconsider our relationship with the territory.
