To many, Sterling Ruby is a Raf Simons collaborator. But to describe the Los Angeles-based artist as such is to overlook much of his other work. In addition to being one of the Belgian designer’s most frequent collaborators, Ruby is a prolific artist in his own right. He has been described as “one of the most interesting artists to emerge in this century” by The New York Times’ art critic, Roberta Smith, and has dabbled in everything from ceramics to painting, sculpture and video. And, while Ruby’s most famous work in the clothing world may well be his collaboration with Raf Simons, the designer has long harbored an interest in using clothing as a canvas for his art—something set to continue with the launch of his own line S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA.
