Ruben de Haas (1988) is an artist and designer from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He loves color, nature and likes investigating different materials and techniques whilst staying playful and intuitive. 

For ten years Ruben lived and worked around the globe. In Australia, New Zealand, Bali, Cambodia, Mexico, Spain and The Netherlands. He joined creative studios, filmed the world-tour of a rock band, tested one hundred markers, made paint using eggs and historic pigments, opened a gallery in Mexico, supported monty amsterdam to win some awards in advertising, published a book, spend a full year living back to basics in nature and recently collaborated with global design brand Moooi for a series of carpets.

His works are bought worldwide by collectors in New York, the United Kingdom, Korea, Hong Kong, Australia and Europe. Long listed for the Royal Dutch Art Prize 2022 and invited for a Round Table conversation with Queen Maximá of The Netherlands at the Milan Design Week 2023 - a few milestones that brings him closer to his big dot on the horizon: exhibit at MoMa (New York City) in 2030.
