Kathrina Rupit (KINMX) originally from Mexico studied graphic design at the University of Visual Arts in Mexico – after a period travelling she established herself in Dublin Ireland and has clearly marked her territory with her captivating work. As the saying goes whats one mans loss is another mans gain which is clearly apt in relation to this amazing street artist.
She uses various mediums that allows a symbiotic dance between urban and culture which is apparent not only with the choice of mediums but in the fusion of explosive colors. Spray paints, urban markers and the use of recyclables such as cardboard wood, doors parts of furniture, popsicle sticks are used as her innovative equivalent to canvas and ultimately the largest canvas of all are the streets!
Kathrina Rupit opens our minds three fold by her unique nuances of culture that flourish through her art unleashing an exotically captivating exhibition with Dublin city as the gallery. Her use of recycled materials clearly portrays, that what is one mans junk is another mans treasure. Ultimately some of her works serve to highlight political and controversial issues which is further reinforced by her use of recyclables. Kathrina shows how the city with its grey walls can be used as canvas to enhance rather than detract from the cityscape.
Kathrina’s work seeks to educate us to look at ourselves as a canvas and how we can become a medium of change also. Kathrina can be found in Temple Bar, Dublin. She is also exhibiting her work Transitions currently at the Embassy of Mexico in Ireland.
