Lou Buche and Javier Rodriguez are both graphic designers and artists. They met in 2017 in their Master studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie from Amsterdam.
They quickly became ROBUCHE, a character born from the fusion between these two forces. Robuche’s work can be trademarked by his wit, playfulness and boyish honesty. Simple ideas are embraced by an energetic visualization and are executed as large painting, posters, typefaces, video installations or performances. Robuche is a quick thinker and gives form to his ideas in unconventional ways.
He wants to create a strong confrontation by manipulating the digital while using the analog, and vice versa. Joy plays a very big role in his creation process, and thus is very much connected to empirical, simple experiences, which are embodied in multiple layers, creating endless, fictional landscapes and characters.
