Who is Ruben

Let’s just ask the people who know me: Who is Ruben?
Here are their answers, some in Dutch.




Who is Ruben?

Ruben is more of a what than a who. An elemental creature that radiates creativity. Should you be lucky enough to come across Ruben or his artwork you too will be imbued with an urge to draw, sing, swim, take photos, make t-shirts for your friends, dance, dream and love. We all need a Ruben.
By Richard Wynn, old friend

Who is Ruben?

Ruben is an anomaly. He is the kind of person that you appreciate in your life as he is very inquisitive, sensitive, entrepreneurial, and enthusiastic.

He pushes a conversation harder than most people dare. He inspires me to be a better person through this conversation and his energy as he continues to hold fast to bring an authentic human being aware of his place in this world.

by Marcus Flack, great friend from Melbourne, Australia

A sensitive, creative man who always wants to explore new ways for his art. Making art and his development in art and in his home design gives inspiration. by Tanja, stephmom



Who is Ruben?

A son to be proud of. Since his early childhood he is curious to discover the world, in his own way. He is convinced and eager, a hard worker, a real creative person and a good communicator. He does not go for the easy way, not for the broad road, but with enough selfconfidence to continue. by Wim, father

Who is Ruben?

Ruben is what I would call an uber creative. He's the kind of person that can create literally anything. Give him a pen and he will draw, give him a computer and he designs, as long as he is inspired he will make the most beautiful things come to life.
by Maarten Dobbelaar, old coleague

Who is Ruben?

Ruben is an incredibly warm-hearted, funny, colorful, cool dude. One of the most creative people I met, without a doubt. I think most of the time I spent with him he was working on some cool project, drawing, painting. Super inspiring. He’s kind, he really cares about his friends. Goes out of his way to help someone in need. He makes me laugh! I wish I lived closer to Ruben. And I love getting to see the world through Rubens eyes. It’s super cool. Ruben is loved by me! by Greta, friend



Who is Ruben?

Ruben is a listener and a talker. A watcher and a doer. A learner and an educator. An artist and an entrepreneur. A team player and an autonomous individual. Ruben is the type of guy that manages to be whatever he pleases to be. But there's one thing he always is: a friendly friend who is interested in the people and world around him. by Rick, friend/old colleague



Who is Ruben?

All round artist.
by Felix, friend



Who is Ruben?

Ruben is truly a curious and creative individual. I’ve always admired his ability to jump right into creative action and problem solve. My personal tendency is to sit around for hours, days, months, or years thinking about how to do something, I envy how Ruben jumps right in, and figures things out in real time. This fearlessness to creatively explore almost anything is a unique and special quality. by Jon Jeffers, friend



Who is Ruben?

Who is Ruben?

Ruben is a enthusiast art lover, thinker about art and above all, artist! He never ceases to amaze me. by Jan Six, a fellow art lover



Who is Ruben?

Ruben is an extremely creative creature that has an extraordinary aesthetic eye and a disturbing -in the best sense of the word- sense of humour. He has the ability to ‘think around corners’, therefore his ideas and visions are always surprisingly refreshing and give you something to chew on and reflect upon for a while. Everything he creates is high quality candy for the eye, mind and soul. by Yvonne van den Eerenbeemt, friend



Who is Ruben?

Ruben's raw. He likes his art just like he likes his Japanese soup. When you can single out the color, form, quality and taste of every single ingredient individually, as well as experience it altogether as a whole. He's 1 of 2 people who has irreversibly changed the way I experience color and light. I witnessed first-hand that he can even convince a professional hair stylist who never dared to change his hair color before, to let him do the coloring. It's an astonishing thing to get to observe and love this man from so up close, with so much transparency, honesty and zest in our exchanges. Ruben inspires me to be full-time me always, and he is rigorously dedicated to igniting the creativity in everybody. A privilege to see us both water our practices side by side in this hunkerbunker. by Dilruba, upstairs neighbour & creative partner in crime
