Gino Rubert born in 1969 in Mexico D.F.
Lives and works between Barcelona and Berlin
Over the last years, Gino Rubert’s work has consisted in representing experiences and emotions from a cartooned and armored way of viewing sentimental relationships: the new woman, the new man, and their functions, dysfunctions, struggles and questions. He works with disciplines such as painting, video or installation. He believes in the tradition of art which, at first sight, seduces, and afterwards, invites to meditate through artifice like trompe-l’oeil or distortion. This way, his paintings are defined by his complex technique of mixing collages of photographs and materials like cork or artificial grass with acrylic and oil paint.
