Riso Booklet: It Was All a Dream—Dubai Diaries

Born and raised in Madrid, adopted by Barcelona and Dubai in the past years, Ruben Sánchez is an artist with a strong, colorful graphic style that resonates through all of his projects. Coming from the cultural worlds of graffiti and skateboarding, Sánchez mixes techniques and influences from each field, working on all kind of materials from canvases, murals, reclaimed wood, sculptures or installations. His artworks can be found all around the globe, as a part of art festivals, humanitarian projects or international exhibitions but also as “uncommissioned” works in all kind of places. Sánchez gave Slanted’s creative director Lars Harmsen a “carte blanche“ to create a compilation of his works produced during his time in Dubai. The booklet was printed by the well-known riso-workshop Drucken3000 in Berlin.
