Ruben Kos, alias rbnks is a Digital Artist living in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The settings of his artworks describe, with a humorous touch, a mostly desolate post-apocalyptic world where ancient objects still survive. In this new era, these recognizable symbols and pop culture characters are the only remaining links to the past.
Ruben first studied at the graphic school in Amsterdam before going to the School of Arts in Utrecht, where he completed a master's degree in design technology. Since then he’s been active as a Motion Designer for over 20 years and has started creating his own digital art.
Ruben’s blend of sci-fi imagery with everyday landscapes makes his work stand out. Using his signature method of stacking buildings and objects on top of each other to make viewers contemplate the history of these creations. Ruben’s unique approach of combining unfamiliar structures with well-known characters and commercial signs in desolate landscapes makes his art unique.
