With Hispanic Heritage Month underway, @properties Christie’s International Real Estate is proud to observe this cultural tradition in our hometown of Chicago and beyond. Join us as we highlight six local artists who use their mediums to pay homage to the Hispanic community.
A Chicago native, Ruben Aguirre uses his talents on what he calls “underutilized infrastructure,” producing murals in the Chicago area, across the U.S., and abroad. His compositions aim to reference the socio-historical background of each site location while re-imagining public space, patterns, and color fields. In addition to exhibits at the Chicago Cultural Center and Hyde Park Art Center, his works have been commissioned for clients including Google and Adidas.
