Marc Rubin’s Pointillist works are not only influenced by the Pointillist works by George Seurat and Paul Signac but by Seurat’s principle that contrary elements can be brought into harmony to achieve a successful depiction. Rubin wrote his own principle in 1977, “Synchronism”. It is defined as: “Intentional Fine Art that combines two or more genre’s/styles of art from any place or time into harmonious balance.”

Although Pointillism takes an inordinate amount of time as there are no shortcuts. Marc Rubin makes Pointillist works because as he says, “It’s the coolest art style ever invented and everybody loves it, especially me.”

Even before Marc Rubin began his thesis work in pointillism he was absorbed in classic modern art. Marc had been exposed to the Art Institute of Chicago from his early childhood through his parents' love of art. He would meet and become friends with Jean DuBuffet and Salvador Dali in the mid 1970's. Dali saw incredible magic in pointillism . Although Marc Rubin’s works in Pointillism are mas-terful, his first love is modernism. It originally made sense to study George Seurat and his Pointillism as it is considered the starting point of all modern art. If you ask Rubin he will define him-self as a Fauve, the name of recognition self used by Henri Ma-tisse and George Braque.
