‘Art Ruebens has known since childhood that it is paint that flows thru his veins. Art attended the Columbia University in New York with a Fine Arts major. After college he began work as a freelance illustrator with such clients as Coca Cola, Sax Fifth Avenue, and a dozen other well known corporations. He later taught at the Art Students League. Ruebens’ portraits create mood and mystery on canvas at times painted so realistic you feel as though the subjects will reach out and touch you’.
Art Review

American Art

‘Ruebens portraits are brought to life by his clean, sharp style, which conveys the essence of his subjects’.
Village Voice

‘Art Ruebens creates evocative and timeless figurative works. In painting his subjects, Ruebens has concentrated on honing his powers of observation, especially as it concerns color, texture, form and composition. Ruebens connects his highly trained background to his artistic expression this way’.
