ABOUT AGATE RUBENE
Agate Rubene is the artist and illustrator behind the striking brand Restless & Infectious.
Born in Latvia, Agate currently resides and works from Wānaka, New Zealand. After studying fashion design in Riga Design and Art school Agate moved to Herning, Denmark and later Amsterdam where she completed degrees in Design & Business in TEKO and Amsterdam Fashion Institute.
With her extensive background in fashion, Agate’s initial exploration of fashion illustration has played a huge part in the development of her unique style. Drawing upon life’s pleasures, Agate’s work captures the emotions of people (and their actions) through a vivacious lens.
Agate finds her inspiration in her daily personal experiences, mood, and the aesthetic of pop culture. Her employment of bright colours and fluidly harmonious contours creates a breathtaking alternate reality that truly catches the eye.
Agate exhibits regularly and her work is held in collections in New Zealand and internationally.
Quay are delighted to bring Agate's visually stunning Limited Edition Prints.
