Rubin415 Comes To One Soho Square This Weekend!
On July 29th, I saw a cool mural outside of Spring & 6th Avenue (One SoHo Square) and found out that it’s part of an installment artist series spearheaded by Stellar Management, the landlord that owns the building.
Rubin (@Rubin415) will be prepping and painting a blank 30 foot canvas this Friday, September 23rd and will complete the project Saturday, September 24th from 10AM-5PM. Rubin will be creating the work which will center on the theme of city vs. nature. The work will be showcased during the Fall season.
Rubin has been featured in many murals, including one outside of the Rag & Bone on Elizabeth Street. Below are two more projects that show the Scandinavian roots & culture against the NYC landscape!
Rubin has become a staple of the New York City street art scene and he has put his trademark on concrete and brick all over the world, from his native Scandinavia to Thailand and Miami Art Basel. His abstract and geometrical pieces are rooted in traditional graffiti but break the rules of the craft with its muted color palette and Scandinavianly clean lines. Rubin draws inspiration from his gritty upbringing, the tram tunnels where he first learned the craft and from the contrasts that have formed him into the artist he is today: the skyline of the hectic metropolis versus the serenity of the Nordic nature, all perfectly balanced in his art.
About the landlord: Stellar Management was founded the year I was born, 1985, and owns over 13,000 apartments and 2,000,000 square feet of office and retail space.
