Desde 2001, RUIS VARGAS está à frente da matilha Laika. Utiliza-se diariamente de seus tentáculos para trabalhar a ESCRITA – roteiros, literatura, ensaios críticos, textos das mais diversas laudas, dialogando com semiótica, história da arte e cultura. E, em seguida, mergulhar na materialização gráfica de ideias pelo DESENHO – explorando técnicas de ilustração, tipografia, design e fotografia. Além da produção Laika, Ruis Vargas desenvolve trabalho autoral em quadrinhos, tendo publicado uma dezena de livros. E assim seus tentáculos se estendem por um oceano imenso de possibilidades criativas e conceituais, estruturando ideias, que se materializam, ganhando linhas, lógica, senso estético, sentido e aplicabilidade.
