Ruben Sánchez: Human Nature Exhibit Opening Reception
RUBEN SÁNCHEZ: HUMAN NATURE
EXHIBIT OPENING RECEPTION
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2022, 5pm-8pm
Join us for the Ruben Sánchez opening reception at Moberg Gallery, 2411 Grand Ave., Des
Moines, IA 50312 on Friday, October 21, 2022, from 5pm – 8 pm.
From Barcelona to Des Moines, international emerging artist, Ruben Sánchez, has his first US
solo show, Human Nature, opening at Moberg Gallery! This exhibit celebrates the human
condition, embracing our imperfections but also our ability to overcome difficult situations.
Sánchez, who currently resides in Barcelona, will be in Des Moines for the opening to discuss
his practice and share drinks and snacks with all those in attendance!
He is in town for a live painting corporate event, as well, and is excited to experience Des
Moines, the people of Des Moines, and all our city has to offer!
This new body of work—where post-cubism flirts with abstraction, and where color creates a
dialogue with black and white—has been created in a mix of styles. These paintings sometimes
act as mirrors, creating a colorful therapy, and filling the gallery with questions that ask us to
think about the mysteries of the most powerful tool we have—our mind. And to remind us that
happiness can be found in the everyday details. He wants to welcome you to this journey with
no pre-determined destination.
Sánchez was born and raised in Madrid and comes from the cultural worlds of graffiti and
skateboarding. Sánchez studied graphic design and illustration, and in the mid-2000s, he began
mixing the techniques and influences from each field. His artwork can be found at festivals,
humanitarian projects or international exhibitions, in: Bulgaria, Canada Denmark, France,
Greece, Hungary, Jordan, Spain, Turkey, and the US.
