Joe Iurato is a multidisciplinary artist whose works are built on a foundation of stencils and aerosol. Iurato’s murals have been highlights in neighborhoods along the east coast United States for years, and recently he has also become noted for the clever placement and photography of unique miniature painted wood cutouts in public spaces.

Utilizing the outdoor environment to create site-specific installations, Iurato creates windows into a narrative formed by personal experiences. Each individual work of art inspires the potential for interaction and storytelling within public space and transforms common land/cityscapes into carefully crafted and playful scenes.


The son of Finnish immigrant workers in Sweden, Rubin was born and raised in the epicenter of boredom – the concrete projects of Bergsjön, Gothenburg. From this experience, he began picturing walls blossoming before his eyes – and started out on a journey that he’s still on today.
Rubin’s abstract geometrical pieces are inspired by the forms of traditional wild style graffiti, but are created in muted and earth-tone color palettes with Scandinavian clean lines.
He has put his trademark on concrete and brick walls all over the world, from Finland to Thailand, Denmark to Miami, New York to Los Angeles – and has developed a signature style that has become internationally respected.

The artist seamlessly transitions between large murals to paintings that range in size. His paintings have been showcased in galleries in Stockholm, Reykjavik, Montreal, New York and Los Angeles. Rubin has also collaborated on projects with MTV, Heineken, GAP and the Scandinavian design house COMMON, and has been featured in Juxtapoz, Vice Magazine, Brooklyn Street Art, ArtSlant and Graffuturism.

A wonderful, new retrospective book of Rubin’s artwork Rubin: New York / Scandinavia – was published this year. The book takes you inside his studio, to art galleries and on a journey through the streets of New York City.

Rubin resides in Brooklyn, but he’s just at home in the wilderness of Lapland, where he spends the summers with his wife in a log house among reindeer and underneath the midnight sun.
