MEET STERLING RUBY
One of the most successful artists working today, Sterling Ruby recently collaborated with designer Raf Simons for Christian Dior. “When we worked together, it was almost like being married,” Simons told W Magazine about the fashion-meets-artworld project. “The collection grew out of years of talking—so many similarities between us, so many shared interests. It was a really natural thing to do.”
Ruby is an American mixed-media artist who was born in 1972 on a military base in Germany. He studied art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and later the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
His work is in the collections of the Guggenheim New York, the Whitney, the Pompidou and the Tate Modern in London. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
Ruby’s work is on view as part of the New Skin exhibition at the Aïshti Foundation, Jal el Dib.
