Brooklyn based mural and studio artist Tony “Rubin” Sjöman has painted all over the world and his work has been shown in several galleries throughout the US and Europe. Rubin draws inspiration from his Scandinavian heritage and is known for his complex abstract geometrical style, with muted color palettes and clean lines.
Rubin was raised in the working class housing projects of Bergsjön in Gothenburg, Sweden. This gritty upbringing inspired him to write his first tag in the tram tunnels. The skyline of the hectic metropolis versus the serenity of the Nordic nature, all perfectly balanced in his art. With raw talent and relentless hard work Rubin has created a unique aesthetic that carries the art form beyond its boundaries.
His has exhibited in Hong Kong, Sweden, Canada, Iran, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more.
