Ru8icon was raised in New England and went to art school in upstate New York. Although he was classically trained as an oil painter, he initially recoiled from efforts to connect with an established art scene. Galleries seemed aloof and the life of a studio artist seemed isolated. He spent several years pursuing other interests and traveling, all the while watching with interest the burgeoning street art scene. He would pay for his travels by taking on commissions to paint murals and make mosaics and woodcarvings for local businesses around Portland, Maine. In 2008 he moved to Madrid. For the first time he found a community of other street artists. In contrast to the isolation of the studio or the stylistic restrictions of commission work, the Spanish street art scene offered an active culture of collaboration, growth and social commentary.
