Today we're catching up with Rubin, a Brooklyn street artist whose newest work will be featured in Sugarlift's upcoming exhibition during Bushwick Open Studios on Saturday, June 6th!
Rubin has developed a signature style of clean geometric forms, painting gorgeous and instantly-recognizable murals on walls around the city. He is one of the most talented street artists working in Brooklyn today, and we're excited to see his new work in the gallery and on the street during Bushwick Open Studios!
