Ruben Luna, Portrait of my tio (uncle), 2020. Found objects with neon. Courtesy of the artist.
A San Antonio native, Ruben Luna draws inspiration from the creative challenge of working with resources at hand. Luna assembles readily available objects into symbolic portraits that pay tribute to people in his life. Luna earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History and Criticism from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He has worked as a museum art preparator for the past 20 years and is currently the Art Installation Manager at the McNay. Luna’s artwork is featured this summer in the Museum’s Artists Looking at Art (ALA) series, created to salute the vitality of San Antonio’s contemporary art community.
