About The Artwork

This artwork is finished with a high gloss using high-quality epoxy resin.

When I started painting SWIMMERS in 2019 due to my passion for triathlons, I realize that that swimmer going against the grain was me, feeling the purpose for which I've come to this life, without being vulnerable to the comments of those who cross our path IN THE SEA OF LIVE.

In 2022, I began to feel an inner state of less struggle as I solidified my profession as an artist. I wanted to understand how to create perfectly defined silhouettes that would merge using pigmented epoxy resin, so I dedicated 19 months to trial and error. In UNDERWATER, there's a swimmer seen from within the water—an ethereal figure nestled in the corner of the painting, transparent and brought to life with the application of 3D varnish. The layers of colours in UNDERWATER come together to symbolize the dance of rays of light penetrating the water, capturing the profound tranquillity experienced while diving into THE SEA OF LIVE.

Although SWIMMERS has reached over 300 collectors from 34 different countries and has been exhibited in New York, Hong Kong, Taiwan, London, Amsterdam, Madrid, Hamburg, and several other major cities, I always have the feeling that this new life I have dared to live as an artist has done nothing but begin. I will rest only when the message conveyed by SWIMMERS and UNDERWATER reaches the world. A statement that reminds us that we must be ourselves authentically and honestly, following our most personal instinct.

I love how the ocean, the sea, represents life's behaviour, with its water full of current and temperature changes. Sometimes a rainbow appears in the background, or we look to the other side and see the coast, the sand, the waves, and palm trees. At times, we have a light gifted by the sun with a clear blue sky, while other times, we have an overcast sky and rain.

Rubén, born in 1975 in Spain, is a self-made painter whose journey into art began not long ago. His latest collection, Underwater, showcased in his profile, is a testament to his evolution as an artist. This series wouldn't have been possible without his earlier collection, Swimmers, which stemmed from a desire to convey a profound sentiment of wanting to halt and pivot in a different direction. Initially, Rubén found solace in triathlons, particularly Ironman competitions, which inspired his depiction of swimmers moving against the tide—a reflection of his own pursuit of a happier path. As he delved deeper into painting, he realized that while he hadn't reached any definitive destination, the mere act of being on the journey brought him a sense of tranquillity, vibrant colour, and fulfilment. Underwater represents a shift in perspective, moving from aerial views to submerged vistas. Through this series, Rubén captures the interplay of sunlight filtering through water, mingling with vibrant hues, symbolized by the bubbles in his paintings. Each piece features a solitary swimmer, visible only upon close examination under a transparent varnish—a metaphor for discovering hidden depths within oneself. Rubén's artwork transcends borders, with pieces gracing walls in over 34 countries and being featured in 13 fairs across the United States, Europe, and Asia in 2023. His deeply personal creations resonate with viewers, inviting them to connect with their own journeys and emotions. He hopes to evoke a response with his colour combinations, aiming for his art to find a place in the hearts and homes of those who resonate with its message. Rubén's artistic journey mirrors his quest for fulfilment, inviting viewers to dive into the depths of their own experiences and emotions through his evocative creations.
