Lives and works between Barcelona and Berlin.
In recent years, Gino Rubert’s work has consisted of representing experiences and emotions accessed from the animated and armored framework of sentimental relationships: the new woman, the new man, and their functions and dysfunctions, struggles and questions. To do so, he uses disciplines such as painting, video and installation. He recognises himself as a child of the tradition, that art must first seduce the gaze through artifices such as trompe l'oeil and distortions, and from there invite us to reflection. 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.
