Famous Mexican street artists

This year 2015, Rueda has updated his style with a cheerful, contrasting, and kaleidoscopic touch. This fresh look immediately caught the attention of the art market and his work is to be sold in high-street markets in Paris. He is admittedly inspired and influenced by some well-established Mexican street artists such as Seher One, Saner and especially LeSuperDemon (see work below).

Rueda does not hide the fact that his signature artwork “Scream” carries not only impressive colors but also a ‘J&B’ logo. It is pinned and liked on social media with the caption: “sponsored by J&B Mexico”. The desire of big brands to be associated with trending young artists has been a trend for years, but this year, it offered emerging artists like Rueda a chance to bring his name to the world.

Farid Rueda Art

Mural painting has always been a medium of art expression in Mexico dating back to its pre-Hispanic time. A single figure, animals and narrative scenes are often found in the Mesoamerican monumental buildings, the themes are strongly based on nature. You can see the traces of pre-classic elements in Rueda’s work.

Nature and spirituality have always been present, regardless of the choice of color or style. Dropping out of art school and joining the No Colectivo creative group, Rueda has never stopped telling his story with passion and skills. When he expresses it in this sharpened catchy style, the art market gives its response with incentives.
