Born in Baja California Sur, Mexico, Rubi Villa showed her characteristic curiosity and passion for the visual arts at a very young age. She has over the years explored and developed different techniques and themes, always returning to the aesthetic lines and poetic intimations of the female form and spirit.
Rubi has exhibited in her native country throughout her career and was actively involved in local creative collectives even as a young artist. She has in recent years exhibited in France and the United States.
She now resides in Florida, and her new surroundings mark a new period in her work. As she explores psychedelic, mixed media, and pop art, she continues to share her singular artistic vision, a reflection of her inner and outer being.

We would love to know more about you:
What is something you had to put off because of the pandemic that you have recently done or is on your list to do soon? Curiously, the pandemic taught me never to put myself in the background again, I was living a life a little more as a spectator, and being aware of the ephemeral nature of life and the little control we have over bigger things made me take action positively about my being. I made great changes in my spirit and I am sure that this brought me transcendental things in my life and career. I met my husband, left my job, moved to another country, and took control of the talent that God gave me.
What does your art future hold for you? I resumed my career a few months ago and it’s impressive how quickly everything has come, there are more and more events happening, and I receive more and more attention, it’s like a snowball that leaves me confident that great things are coming, I can see myself in a not too distant future to obtain what we artists dream of, fame comes hand in hand, money is a necessity but above all realization, exploration, the feast of sensations that are artistic enjoyment.
How do you keep motivated: Pay attention to the things that really matter, and have the ability to see how lucky I am, I have a lot of love in my life, when I forget how good I can be and go through a moment of crisis I can always count on the people who love me to remind me.
Name a famous artist that inspires you and one not yet famous artist you would like the readers to know about.
I love Rosalia, her aesthetics and passion make me feel identified with what I want to offer. and of the artists who are not yet famous, I deeply admire my husband, Nathan Curry, I admire his sensitivity and discipline, he always helps me to be better personally and professionally, another person I want to mention is my friend from so recently Hugo Navarro, he has a perception of space that with few resources is capable of transforming it.
Is there a current or upcoming show or exhibit you want to let people know about? Right now I am showing pieces at Rebel Wine Bar in Oakland Park until the last day of April and at Brewhouse Gallery in Lake Park until July, during the month of May, I will be showing pieces at Hotspots in Wilton Manors and at Pride Corner Art and Frame also in Wilton Manors.
What inspires you to be an artist and what inspiration can you pass on to others? Romantically I think that I was born that way, on the contrary, I have always had to make an effort to deny my nature, I like to say that I suffer from the condition of an “artist”, I always have a thousand ideas in my head and a prevailing need to express them, I have found in artistic disciplines that relief from this “condition”. Elements that move me to think about and where my ideas come from is the materialization of sensations, for example, the flavor that textures or colors could have, the texture that movement could have, etc.
How are you giving back to your community? I am currently very interested in getting to know as many people as possible in the artistic world, this includes emerging artists like me or newcomers to the town, I want to create a network of support and solidarity, generally, plastic artists are a bit lonely due to the nature of our work, I would like us to forget a bit about the idea of competing and try to share more with each other. Every time I have the opportunity to support, I do so. If I know of an opportunity or call, I pass it on to people who I think might be interested.
Let’s end with a fun fact about you. I have a pet goat in Mexico, when I was there I took her for a walk to the beach and she and I spent a good time together enjoying nature, you can see my posts about her on my social media.
