Jimena Murabito’s art is most of the time autobiographical work, that of confessions translating fragments of her life and experiences into various artistic works ranging from photography, collages, and poems. Jimena was born in Buenos Aires, she shares most of her time in Miami, NYC, and London.
The most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done? My life has been a series of spontaneous actions, with a few rational and logical exceptions…Sometimes, it feels like I am subconsciously, living consistently, sacrificing convenience and comfort for uncertainty and excitement.
Who inspired you? Who is very important to you? I’m a sentimental person; emotional feelings strongly influence me artistically. I usually get inspired by love, romance, music, and occasionally literature. But, inspiration also arises in nature. Those devoted to self-transformation and living with essence—inspire me. I also find inspiration in fashion, architecture, street art, and multicultural industrial neighborhoods; the colors, shapes, power, and stories behind them. All things aesthetics, I suppose. As to who is very important to me, my only answer is my father, with his invaluable lessons on unconditional love and the value of simple living.
What is your happy space / your favorite place on this earth? My happy space is when I’m in motion—driving long distances, riding horses & motorcycles, moving my body with yoga and rollerblading, traveling around the world, and contemplating nature. And my favorite place is where my heart is.
