The paintings of Bruce Rubenstein merge the creative attitudes of the two distinct art hot spots of New York and Los Angeles. Rubenstein's work has a rigid edge and strong composition but maintains organic shapes and soft colors as well. His works have character that brightens a space. His paintings pull from abstract expressionism and cubism but maintain a contemporary edge that strikes the viewer. His work seems collectively new and timeless at once.
This one-of-a-kind 36-inch square artwork is a mixed media composition layered with acrylic paint, oil pastel, and pencil on canvas. It is stretched, wired, and ready to hang. This abstract painting is signed by the artist on the front and back of the artwork. The sides are painted and it does not require framing. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping available. Provenance: Artspace Warehouse. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
Bruce Rubenstein specializes in large-scale artworks, using huge canvases to tell his stories. Born and raised in New York, he moved to Los Angeles in 1985. His mixed media artworks defy categorization, blending abstract forms and organic shapes with subtle hints of figures and symbols. Adrien Brody and Mickey Rourke are among Rubenstein’s collectors.
Bruce Rubenstein’s artistic influences include artists from Joan Miró and Jean Arp to Gerhard Richter and Pablo Picasso. “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.”
His works are represented by Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles and have been exhibited and collected worldwide, including exhibitions in Austria and Israel.

Bruce Rubenstein's large scale paintings have a rigid and strong composition, but maintain organic shapes and soft colors. His paintings pull from abstract expressionism and cubism, harnessing a striking contemporary edge inspired by his experiences in New York and Los Angeles.
“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 called “Bullet” about a struggling artist. The film’s stars included Adrien Brody and Mickey Rourke, both of whom are among Rubenstein’s collectors.
