about Rubén Martín de Lucas
In 2002 he gets the diploma of Civil Engineer at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Spain. After a 4 month wandering travel through India, he puts aside engineering to devote enterily to art. In 2001 he becomes one of the five founders of Boa Mistura, a multidisciplinary artistic collective with roots in urban art with whom Rubén works until 2015, making projects in South Africa, Spain, Norway, Germany, Algeria, Mexico and Brazil. In January 2015 he begins his solo career developing a body of work whose focus is the “landscape and associated behavior”. Studing subjects as the gradual reduction of space for wildlife, overpopulation in a limited planet, the artificial character of borders, the liquid nature of the concept of nation or the dichotomy between industrial agriculture and natural agriculture. All of it to build a discourse that push us to reconsier our relasionship with territory.
