Introducing

RUSS RUBIN

RUSS RUBIN (b. 1983) is a painter of abstract landscapes from the exotic woods of New Jersey. Working summers in the family factory in Newark, he’d stare out the bullet-holed windows, sketching with his finger in metal dust on an old punch press, dreaming up his future as the Jewish Jean Michel Basquiat slash center fielder for the New York Mets.
With the latter failing to materialize and art school shot down by his factory rat father, he fled for New Orleans, and eventually Los Angeles. There he waded his way through the cesspool of the music industry, emerging at the center of the east side indie scene of the later aughts.

Designing logos, posters and album covers for the bands he managed led to a Creative Director gig with a fledgling promoter, and from there he began to reconnect with his lost dreams of schmearing the paint.

Russ’s work has been collected across the US and Europe, acknowledged by the MOMA, acquired by the Jeff Koons Collection, and shown at Mark Borghi, Ground Floor, Field Projects, OnePiece, and the YouTube Space in New York, and with Brushes With Greatness in London. Upcoming exhibitions include Young Soy Gallery (Hong Kong), Affordable Art Fair (Hong Kong + New York), and Playroom Gallery (NJ).
