Rixy Fz is a contemporary painter, street artist, educator & storyteller, conceptualizing feminine divinity in their various forms. She reinterprets fantastical stories of agency and identity – like episodes of a never-ending cartoon. Approaching “sensuality” as a range of one’s mind, body, and soul, the stylized work mixes mediums like loose paints, fabric, & drawing tools to create these characters or ‘sabores’ (flavors). Here, this practice is for one’s reflection of our various layers, and to test the limits of one’s depicted.
She received her BA in Studio Art at UMass Boston, with a concentration in Sculpture, that go beyond physical practice – understanding space, community, and what we feel in between. She has received the 2019 Ruth Butler Travel Fellowship for a Studio Residency in Mexico, and the 2017 Arts|Learning Award for Student Arts Advocacy. Her passion to expand her practice, personifies her drive to educate, to provide access to the Arts for others. This has allowed her to evolve into a Teacher and Director, recently becoming an Adjunct Instructor at the Boston Architectural College, & the Public Art Coordinator of Central Sq’s BID's "Speak Your Piece" Campaign; exhibiting on street-wide to institutional walls.
