Chicago River View 1996

42 x 42 inches, Pop Cubism

Coral, Under the Sea 1996

42x48 inches, Surreal Cubism

Although his works in Pointillism are masterful, 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 It originally made sense to study George Seurat and his Pointillism as it is considered the starting point of all modern art.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 Marc Rubin he will define himself as a Fauve, the name of recognition self used by Henri Matisse and George Braque. Meeting Salvador Dali during a visit to the university led to an amazing friendship during the last decade and a half of Salvador Dali’s life. 

Salvador Dali had been a fan of Pointillism since his teenage years. He is the reason that Ladies of the Canyon is also a surreal work. After the Art Institute exhibition they became as close a grandfather and grandson. Marc stayed with the Dali’s during several exhibition trips to Europe. Salvador painted in and invented styles which are not seen as Surrealism but Salvador told Marc that all true modern art is Surrealism as true abstraction is the effort of altering reality. Salvador encouraged Marc to continue inventing new modernist styles. It is Salvador Dali who named one of these established inventions as Surreal Cubism.

In 1976 upon Marc’s return from a one man exhibition in Europe he was commissioned to paint a city-scape of Chicago. When asked to create a new style for the painting his response was the invention of Pop Cubism. Two of his many Pop Cubist city scapes were requested in poster form by The City of Chicago Cultural Center Stores. Marc Rubin’s art are available as posters and digital reproductions on canvas. 

The following year, 1977, Marc Rubin made the greatest contribution to Fine Art since Georges Seurat invented and defined Pointillism in 1873. He defined and created the first work in his invention, Synchronism. Synchronism was in practice but never as a genre. Rubin’s Self Portrait 1969, combination of Cubism and Fauvism.

One Of The Most Diverse World Artist Of Our Time

Marc Rubin finished his college education in 1972. In 1973 he entered his thesis painting, "Ladies Of The Canyon", pointillism, surreal subject, acrylic on canvas 48x58 inches, in the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago - Chicago Competition. His unanimous inclusion into the exhibition by 3 visiting museum curators and James Spiers curator of the Art Institute created profound recognition for a very young Marc Rubin. Within one year his

works were shown and sold in Europe, Chicago and New York City.

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. While Salvador Dali saw incredible magic in pointillism Marc Rubin found that magic in Henri Matisse’s Fauvism, George Braque's Cubism and Jean DuBuffet's Abstract Expressionism.
