    Sterling Ruby lives and works in Los Angeles. He studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois, and Art Center College of Design, Pasadena under Mike Kelley. He is known for his richly glazed biomorphic ceramics, poured urethane sculptures, hypnotic videos, and monumental spray-painted canvases. Manifesting his coherent artistic vision across an impressively diverse range of mediums, Ruby embarks upon investigations into the material and intellectual fabric of contemporary society.
