Ruben Ubiera is a neo-figurative artist known for his strong use of the line, graffiti inspired technique/esthetic, urban murals, mixed-media pieces and installations, all created with reclaimed-objects and found artifacts. He paints and draws in a style considered as Postgraffism, but he prefers to call it urban-pop, since he has lived most of his life in urban, populated areas and most of his inspiration is derived from the inter activity between man and his urban environment.
Postgraffism artists are the product of this new era: The neo-illustrators and designers that are experimenting with new mediums (and media) and have been influenced by graffiti, in one form or the other. In Postgraffism, lettering no longer becomes the focus. Concept and technique, can control, are what is key. Postgraffism artists are taking the new mediums to new plateaus, conceptually and graphically.
