Deon Rubi is the Nom de Guerre of artist and designer Lucila Garcia De Onrubia. Originally from Argentina, DEONRUBI was given to the artist by the American school system and since, became the moniker for all of her creative practices. From being featured in the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM Shop) to collaborations with artists like Magnus Sodamin, and her iconic graphics by Miami muralist Serge Toussaint, Deon Rubi has become a recognized name within the Miami community.
Both fans of expanding the experience of art through wearable works, Natology's collaboration and representation of Deon Rubi was as natural as the hand-shaped acrylic pieces in this exclusive series of Wearable Sculpture. Deon Rubi was featured by Natology at Scope Miami Beach 2014 and welcomed into various private collections including prominent New York City collector and art matron Elizabeth A Sackler.
Below is the Wearable Sculpture collection for Natology and images from our first studio visit where Deon Rubi's blend of minimalist design, traditional jewelry technique and repurposed materials made its way into my heart.
