Learn more about me, Ruben Nieto, and my one-of-a-kind artistic style! My art is about capturing energy, color, and strong imagery. My patrons admit to being captivated and uplifted by my work. Every day they are drawn into the art and discover new, exciting elements.
I create a visual language rooted in childhood memories of watching cartoons on television and reading American Comic books. I digitally alter scanned images from multiple Comic Books and those of cartoon characters. I appropriate them and transform them into my imagery, influenced by Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. The resulting densely layered compositions serve as a platform where those memorable cartoon characters can be re-born.
As a professional impressionist artist and painter, I coined the term "Comic Abstractions" to fully describe what I do. My process starts with oil paints, and I've recently been layering and using mixed media, including spray paint and textured materials. Additionally, I am also interested in incorporating technology and software into the artistic process.
Purchase a Piece
Contact me to inquire about pricing, and availability, if you are interested about purchasing one of my works of art. Please note that while I love collaborating with my clients, I do not do commissioned work from scratch. I do make prints on commission, if you like one of my pieces, I can work with you to add special elements that you like, the material to be printed on, and the required size if applicable.
Alternatively, you can visit one of the galleries where my work is on display for purchase. These galleries are Cris Worley Fine Arts in Dallas and the Erdreich White Fine Art Gallery in Boston.
