Rubin Marroquin, who was covered in Artscope’s magazine’s July/August 2012 issue, was noted for being eccentric as well as highly nontraditional while still working as a successful artist in Bridgeport and New York. We’re happy to report that today he is as productive as ever, and living his art, which is an exploration on culture and outsider art. He has been giving weaving demonstrations at the MoMA in New York City. A woven version of the Palestinian flag can be seen currently on exhibit at the Bridgeport Art Trail’s Reads Building. Be sure to check out his Tumblr to stay up to date with his work at marroquinruben.tumblr.com.
(Editors note: In this new section we take a look back at featured artists who have been Artscoped to keep up to date with the artist and see the progression of their work since the initial publication review.)
