Ruben Cukier Biography

Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1964

Born and raised in a politically violent Buenos Aires, Cukier chooses colors and shades that reveal a yearning for a less superficial, less deceptive reality. The forms, dimensions and colors give shape to dreams and nightmares, and even allude to a notion of hope. Humor is used to reflect fears, habits and desires that most of us deny and suppress deep within. He has worked as a storyboard designer, internet designer and illustrator in many different countries, such as Spain and Israel, where he now lives.

Artist's Statement

Nothing shapes a person's worldview more than their environment. My vision of the world is reflected in my works and I try to synthesize this vision of aesthetics.
