Ruben Aguirre is a Chicago based abstract painter/muralist. He has produced a number of murals in the Chicago land area, across the U.S., and abroad. Aguirre's work is an intersection of abstract graffiti, design, and contemporary muralism.  His work is informed by architecture and plays with re-imagining public space, while investigating pattern, texture, and color field through the use of the spray can, with traces of typographic letter structure from his graffiti roots. He has exhibited in The National Museum of Mexican Art, the Chicago Cultural Center, and in the Hyde Park Art Center. His public work has been commissioned for schools, residential spaces, private businesses, neighborhood development organizations, as well as various corporate clients.
