Victoria Ruiz

City:

Victoria Ruiz is a multidisciplinary artist that works across an array of mediums that aid her in challenging and questioning the status quo. Her creative journey was sparked through her strong sense and belief in activism. Through her work, she is able to tell a story by engulfing you in a magnetic realm that revisits parts of her childhood, delves into her very own heritage and culture, gives a voice to the voiceless, and above all else constantly questions that powers that be.  

The Venezuelan artist is based between Miami and London. She is currently completing a BA In Fashion Communication and Promotion at Central Saint Martins.

'El Fin o El Comienzo' translates to The End or The beginning. This is a visualization of my current view of Venezuela transformed through my childhood memories and experiences.
'Soldado Callejero' translates to Street Soldier. This is a visualization of my current view of Venezuela transformed through my childhood memories and experiences.
