Teresa Rubio

Personal:

Date and Place of Birth: April 11th, 1960, México D.F.

Education:

In her early years she had a self-taught artistic background. For over twenty years she has spent long periods of time in Europe; this has allowed her to deepen her artistic skills. In her trips to Europe, she has had the privilege of attending multiple and diverse exhibitions, visited art galleries and museums and participated actively in workshops with local artists, enriching her approach to art.
In 2005 she refined her watercolor technique at the Sunningwell School of Art, in Oxford, England. She studied painting at the Ecole D’Arts in Lyon, France.
In Mexico, she has participated in several visual arts workshops, among which the ones of Oscar Bachtold, José Luis Bustamante, Víctor Guadalajara, Jorge Salort, Huáscar Taborga, and Roger Von Gunten stand out.
Teresa Rubio has studied for years Zao Wo-Ki´s art work, and this has inspired her deeply.
Her art belongs to the artistic tendency Informalism, the trend that refers to the expulsion of forms and figures to allow space to speak for itself. Teresa uses different techniques such as watercolor, tempera, acrylic, collage, oil and encaustic.
