Meet Rubem Robierb

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rubem Robierb.

Hi Rubem, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I grew up playing on the riverbanks of Maranhão, Brazil. My first artistic expression was actually poetry, which was closely followed by photography because I wanted to translate my poems into images. After I moved to Sao Paulo and received formal photography training, I was discovered by the French ‘Art et Partage’ association, that brough me to Europe to debut my first solo Art show in Aix en Provence (France), followed by shows in Paris (France), Milan (Italy) and Zurich (Swiss land) and Monte Carlo (Monaco). A Few years later, I moved to Miami, where I started painting and sculpting. I opened my studio in the art district Wynwood and later expanded to NYC. Miami and NYC are two big cultural melting pots, and for me as an artist who have contemporary society issues as inspiration, It’s essential to be exposed to this energy. I see art as an effective way to communicate with people, and open what are sometimes difficult conversations. Art for me is a powerful instrument that touches people’s hearts with lasting impact. Today I work with an incredible variety of mediums (Photography, painting, sculpture, street art, multimedia art installations, even augmented reality). A medium can be anything that helps to translate and materialize a more complex message into a single image. I see the images and sculptures I create as poems, but with images in glacé of words. My goal is complete when This “poem of images” creates an emotional reaction or response from the viewer.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
– In an artist’s life, the road is never smooth because there is no script for success in this career. Many of us have a need to create and that need never stops. We must also study and research, watch and listen while holding on to our own integrity. Art is often ahead of the time, and sometimes we are left hoping the world catches up with what we want to say. We never know how well a new body of work will be received from critics or the public audience. Art can be a lonely place when the only thing we have as guide is our intuition.

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
It satisfies me and really makes me happy to see people have emotional reaction to my art. If people from all different, backgrounds, ages, genders, cultures and ethnicities react similarly to one piece of art, it is extremely powerful to me! I think because when this happens, it means this art work traveled across and even broke any cultural barrier… directly into people’s hearts. THIS is happiness for an artist. This is what art should be about, connecting people with a common experience, despite all our differences.
