Artist Spotlight: Pablo Jurado Ruiz

“I try to tell stories through a minimalist and subtle vision,” says artist Pablo Jurado Ruiz. “I like to talk about love, disappointment, nature, childhood, and I show it in a glance” Ruiz’s simple drawings certainly have a story to tell, and they manage to say so much with very little. Ruiz’s drawings, mostly drawn using the pointillistic method, all have a unique point-of-view, showing black and white portraits of individuals on their own against a white backdrop. Most of his pieces are usually accompanied with a short poem to explain the mysterious people in his drawings, but an explanation isn’t needed. When you look into the eyes of the people he portrays in, for example, the Nomad series, the work stands on its own.
