About This Project

Ruben Aguirre is a Chicago-based painter who has transitioned from graffiti writing to an abstract/contemporary muralist.

While working on this project Aguirre stated, “The first inspiration is the space itself. My work is a response to a site specific place, so looking, thinking and reacting with paint is the result of being there.” –  as quoted in Sandra Steinbrecher’s Wabash Arts Corridor / Big Walls / 2016
