Los Ruano Gallery is a Southern California Gallery and Studio Space dedicated to showcase work from upcoming artists as well as provide space for events, photo & film productions and workshop classes.
At the helm of our organization are Andrew and David Ruano, visionary brothers with a collective experience of over 25 years in the arts industry.
Andrew's artistic journey commenced during his formative years in high school, where he immersed himself in an array of painting and drawing classes. His talent garnered immediate recognition, with the sale of his artwork following the teacher's assessment. As Andrew actively participated in numerous art-walks and gallery showcases in the Long Beach area, he honed his craft and developed a distinct style. Encouraged by fellow artists and esteemed curators, he embarked on his now renowned Happy Robots Painting series, captivating collectors both locally and internationally. Andrew, also known as ARYStudio, has brought vibrant colors and boundless joy to art enthusiasts across the globe, with his creations adorning private collections in Sweden, Mexico, South Korea, Chile, and Sri Lanka.
David's lifelong affinity for photography traces back to his tender age of two when he captured his first image. However, his professional journey officially commenced in 2010 as a wedding photographer. With each new assignment, David consistently pushed the boundaries of his comfort zone, progressing from wedding and portrait photography to excelling in lifestyle and skate photography. Subsequently, he ventured into the realm of film and video production, driven by an insatiable thirst for knowledge. In pursuit of mastery, David's diverse skill set encompasses photography, graphic design, filmmaking, video editing, animation, storyboarding, directing, producing, and much more. Earning the reputation as "the guy," he has collaborated with esteemed entities such as Smog City Brewing Co, DOTLA, Wheelbase Magazine, Tiller, Firework, Fourwinds Films, Studio4 Acting Class, among others. With unwavering dedication, David strives to capture stories that transcend barriers of language, culture, and race, skillfully employing composition, creativity, and color to engender profound connections.
Through our gallery and studio space, Los Ruano Gallery endeavors to curate and showcase captivating narratives, celebrating the power of art to unite and inspire.
