Yanin Ruibal

Yanin Ruibal’s illustrations and paintings are bold in their vibrancy, whether decorating her Mexico City apartment or public spaces in various countries. 

 Conceptually, her art explores what’s inside of us. Hidden softness, hidden ferocity or hidden pain – the last one Yanin knows well through her own battle with Lyme disease.

 But what’s inside always spills out. The natural explodes into our everyday like weeds between pavement cracks. Her work overflows with lushness, combining an interest in flora and fauna with a uniquely Mexican understanding of vivid color.
