Nicolás Rubió is an Argentine Modernist painter. Born in Spain, his family went into exile during the Spanish Civil War in 1936 and first lived in Vielles in Auvergne, France, before settling in Argentina. His style has at times incorporated elements of Latin American folk art and of fileteado, a genre of decoration associated with Buenos Aires incorporating stylized linear designs, lively colors, and plant forms. He also participated in a major exhibition of the Informalist movement in the 1950s. His large series of 600 paintings on life in Vielles and the work he made for the writer Henry Pourrat, were honored with an award from the French government. He has exhibited in various galleries and museums in Buenos Aires, including Galería Witcomb (1967), Galería Wildenstein (1981), the Quinquela Martin Museum (2012), and the Museo de Arte Popular José Hernández (2017).
