Bio:
Helene Ruiz was born in New York City January 15th, 1958 and has been drawing and painting since childhood. Her father was the major influence in her creative interests and he always encouraged her to express herself through her art.. He, being an artist himself, was her teacher, mentor and inspiration.

In 1973 Ms. Ruiz received a scholarship to a summer arts workshop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She had the opportunity to meet Salvador Dali in person while attending one of those classes, which helped to confirm her passion for surrealism.

She has exhibited her works in numerous shows from New York City, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New Orleans, Maryland, Jamaica W.I., Dominican Republic, South Florida and Virginia.

After severe spinal injuries, she realized the importance of art in her life and how impactful it was in her healing.

In October of 2008 Helene Ruiz organized the Urban Individualists, an artists collective. This artist collective was born from the vision of Helene Ruiz, an artist who resides and works out of her apartment in the Bronx, NY. Her vision is to assemble a group of artists, both visual and performing, into a collective body.
This group represents a multicultural and international network of collaborating individualists cohesively working as a unit. Ms. Ruiz has worked long hours to link her dream to the aspirations of others.
The Urban Individualists believe that we can make an impact in art as a collective body, separated only by our distinct styles. We have a voice that needs to be heard and a vision that needs to be seen.
Since organizing this collective, Helene has curated and organized many multi-media exhibits throughout NYC, Virginia, Maryland, New Orleans, South Florida and the Carribbean, creating opportunities and finding venues for artists to show their works in order to give artists who have never been seen before the platform in order to establish an artists resume, gain recognition and use their “voice” in their medium of choice.

In 2005 she received an artists grant from the Wheeler Foundation and in 2009 she received an artists grant from the Salmagundi Foundation NYFA. She has some of her works published in several books and magazines, “Gaiia, the living Planet, Heart and Soul, Pink Panther Magazine England, Solo Exhibit online magazine, On The Issues Magazine NYC and in Compassion, Courage and Friendship.
Helene Ruiz lives and works out of her apartment.

Hello from a Brooklyn artist,

Leaning back against a lamp post in Prospect Park, you can see the Tower of the Empire State Building framed inside and bisecting the Arch in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza.

Nobody notices it and Building Six of Atlantic Yards will soon eclipse the View.

Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted, artists like you and me,  laid the framework of this historic work-in-progress, 25 years before the Arch.

Ideas on how to raise public awareness to protect this as a “historic visual corridor?”

If you like the view, you will like the history.  http://brooklynmirador.com/

If you’d like to hear more, I be friend, Richard

Anatomical kaleidoscopy

Immagini tratte da uno studio di parti anatomiche, elaborate in maniera caleidoscopica. Risultato: non particolarmente esaltante...pur nella sua originalità.
