Bruce Rubenstein


Bruce Rubenstein has been creating art for over forty years. Born and raised in New York, he moved to Los Angeles in 1985, where he currently lives and works. His history in New York informs the constant activity and motion that his work conveys. Through his artwork, Rubenstein is able to tell a story. His mixed media artworks defy categorization, blending abstract forms and organic shapes with subtle hints of figures and symbols.

Rubenstein specializes in large-scale artworks, using huge canvases to tell his stories. “He is an artist, and that means someone who cannot restrain the flow of ideas,” says author David Rodgers. “He is someone who they just burst out of, who cannot help but communicate, and who sees no reason to stop. He’s a man not limited by media to communicate the stories that he needs to (and must) tell, through any medium he feels necessary.” In 1995, Rubenstein co-wrote a semi-autobiographical film about a struggling artist, “Bullet.” The film’s stars included Adrien Brody and Mickey Rourke, both of whom are among Rubenstein’s collectors.

Bruce Rubenstein’s artistic influences include artists from Joan Miró and Jean Arp to Gerhard Richter and Pablo Picasso. His work has been exhibited and collected worldwide.
