Rubicon1 is a street artist and painter known for his large scale murals realized in a painterly style with rollers and brushes. Periodically he returns to work on canvas as well. His work is sometimes ironic, sometimes sentimental, always drawing attention to the absurdity and splendor of our shared human experience and the constant state of transition which defines everything we do and are.
Building on classical painting chops, Rubicon1 turned his attention to walls in the early 2000s. For the last decade, the artist has been active in the Spanish street art scene first in Madrid, and for the last 3 years in Barcelona. Besides those cities, Rubicon1 has painted in Lisbon, Valencia, Boston, Portland, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo. This year Rubi is living and working in Philadelphia and promises to leave a trail of massive murals in his wake. Keep an eye out for his work around the city and a gallery show of paintings to be announced in the near future.
