RUBENA

 Although many do not know of her, or heard of her,  Rubena Rouge has become a very popular character in artistic events, clubs, and party rooms throughout Spain and parts of Europe. She is a queen you will remember.


I first saw her, and only once,  at one of Suzanne Bartschland's parties three years ago, and did she leave an impression. To date, I don't think I had seen a drag queen do make up on to a latex mask and look like a sex doll!!! And she pulled it I may add. Rubena, who hails from Madrid, has done private parties performing from Ibiza to Vienna  and with her impossible performances and costumes like the ones she wears at Medias Puri, her weekend residence in Madrid which, together with her team,  has recently celebrated her third anniversary. Rubena Rouge's appearance is not without inventiveness. What's more, it involves a surprising elaboration. His styling is inspired by the New York movement of Club Kids, an artistic concept that emerged in the 80s,  when a group of young people, with a taste for fashion and assiduous to dance floors began to dress extravagantly. She is also like a mannequin to which Ruben, is a craftsman, dresses with everything she creates and designs personally. But when the mask comes off, he's a normal boy, with masculine appearance, but with the mask is a different person with no shame who does things only Ruben would dare do. Rubena confesses that, on many occasions, the public believes she is a well-operated real woman, although they later realize that everything is a suit. She doesn't cover her face for ugliness, she's a work of art made in herself. Rouge is very  Avant-Garde. The mask Rubena paints are like works of art, and can express different expressions...not to mention saves all that time scrubbing the make up off at the end of the night. His real drag was lost a long time ago. Now it consists of looking like a beautiful and elegant woman sex doll, although in his words..."I always like to give it a touch of old school, a much more exaggerated look." I'm here for this drag style...thinking out of the normal yet again.

  6. I've seen the last pic before, but didn't realize it was a mask! LOL. Me, so clueless. Very interesting. Very influenced by Leigh Bowery. As is a great deal of drag, these days. Interesting. I would love a gallery to sponsor an exhibit of Rubena in interesting, common settings. At an executive board meeting. Lunch lady at a school cafeteria. Shopping at Walmart. Everything around her - the usual... typical and then HER. I think the juxtaposition between the two worlds would be exciting. In the jury box at a trial. Toll booth person. A dairy farm.

  8. I love all of this.
    Kinky, beautiful, glam, campy and sexy: a winning combo.
    And I agree with Upton, very Bowery, but with lots of sex. And I’m always there for the Drag artists than bring the sex. Confusing people is always the sign of a great artist.
    Fantastic find. Off to the Tube to find her.

    XoXo
