Ruben de Haas
Amsterdam native, makes pop art and dad jokes
Currently creating and displaying his work at the Naderia in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Ruben or Coloruben – will appeal to those who love type, graphic design, and color.
De Haas balances perfect juxtapositions. While the text in his images is precise and boldly unique, the colors add a splash of quirk and wit.
After seeing his work, you might be surprised to find out that Ruben is actually colorblind. He therefore tends to work with bright and vivid colors – in order to see well what’s going on.
A few words from Ruben: “As a kid, my clever stepmom taught me long and complicated words. I’d pen them down to work out choice handwritings. Twenty years later I still polish letters by hand. This apparently is called handmade typography.”
