The artist

Born in 1964 in Montreal, Mike Ruiz is a photographer, director, former model and actor of Canadian origins. Aged 20, he moved to the United States to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Eight years later, he started out in photography. “I found a camera under my Christmas tree and, a few minutes later, I was obsessed. I started to film everything happening in front of me. I taught myself the complex mechanisms of the camera, but it took me a few years to realise that I could really earn my living with my work.” Now based in New Jerset, Mike Ruiz is famous for his beauty, celebrities, and fashion photographs. His work has been published in international many magazines such as Vanity Fair, Prestige Hong Kong, L'Officiel Singapore, L'Officiel Australia, Condé Nast Traveler, Elle (Italy), Vogue (Spain and Brazil). He has collaborated with Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Beyonce, and Prince, among others. Mike Ruiz has also frequently appeared in the American series Next Top Model and Rupaul’s Dragrace, as well as in dozens of other televised representations.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

Mike Ruiz is the author of striking images created according to different artistic influences. By focusing on her beauty, he captured a young woman lying confidently on a banquet table, enjoying the abundance of food on offer for her. Referring to traditional still lifes, subtly chosen plants and fruit are laid out on the table in a cleverly constructed set. Their colours are revealed by the precision of the lighting work. Like a sculptor revealing a form in a block of marble, the photographer comes to illuminate and create the meaning found in the material. In a style that combines mystery and familiarity, formal perfection and poetic depth, Mike Ruiz seems to evoke the Dutch School that developed in the Netherlands during the Renaissance, and notably in the genre scenes of painter Johannes Vermeer. Dramatic and seductive, this composition was created in November 2011 in New York for Lush magazine.
