My name is Rubén Megido (1976, Oviedo). I am an artist, illustrator, and graphic designer.
I live in Asturias, a small region in the north of Spain surrounded by nature and wildlife. I believe art can bring happiness and inspiration to everyone’s lives.
This happens in many ways; some like to decorate their houses with nature art or abstract paintings while others are attracted by unusual and eerie objects.
Most of my artworks are oil on canvas, but I also use digital painting tools that mimic traditional styles that are later reproduced using high-quality printing techniques. As an artist, I love exploring more unconventional topics.
Despite my favorite themes are fantasy, science-fiction, and pop culture, I enjoy painting a wide range of subjects.
I am mostly influenced by the 70s and 80s fantasy illustrators such as Roger Dean or Rodney Matthews as well as by classic painters like Albert Bierstadt, John Martin, or Joseph Turner, to name a few.
