Rubén Contreras. Mexican landscape artist. Contreras' paintings, without doubt, reflect the reality of Mexico's beautiful landscapes. His style, at times, cause his brush strokes to be confused with photography; it is almost as if one can see the scenes through a window!
Born in Mexico City, November 28, 1966, Ruben is awakened to the wonders of art at the age of 4. Though self-taught, he receives the guidance and support of his mother, the painter Rosa Maria Gonzalez Tavera, from whom he inherits his talent. He appears professionally on the art scene in 1982 not only in Mexico but also in the United States and Europe. His paintings have travelled throughout the world and many collectors have acquired his work.
