Ruben Millares
Visual Arts Residency

Ruben Millares was born in Miami, Florida in 1980. As a visual artist he is medium agnostic as he attempts to define balance as a concept. Through the use of sculpture, drawing, performance, installation, print-making, painting, music and video he is able to capture the essence of an idea without limitation. For Millares time, more than an inspiration, is a powerful raw material. As an artist with a formal educational training as a Certified Public Accountant and Financial Planner, as well as in art and music, Millares is in a constant search for the fusion between practicality and imagination. Informed by two opposite worlds, his work gives an impression of great poetry with a serious yet playful airiness.
