I have always been fascinated by motion. What fascinates me with this craft is to capture the viewer’s attention. But he doesn’t need any background knowledge to understand my work. He needs nothing but his eyes and his sensibility.
Patrick Rubinstein is a French artist born in 1960. He currently works and lives in Paris.
Through an innovative process, the artist creates his pieces in three dimensions, and even, to see several works in one. Three different points of view become possible. He works in this sense on the notion of Opt Art, or optical art, a genre that plays with our perceptions, that deludes us. A style that experienced a meteoric rise in the 1960s.
When Vasarely conceives abstract eye trunks in space by transforming architecture, Patrick Rubinstein will play with figurative. He reappropriates icons of pop culture, and presents them in different facets.
He develops a kinetic universe from multiple influences, from the Renaissance to Street Art through Pop Art or surrealism, his creativity knows no limits. At his contact, the images become alive, a process that will grant him international recognition.
Patrick Rubinstein has worked with Philippe Starck and his works are presented all over the world. In 2013, only five years after selling his first work to Durot, he is ranked 89th in the top 100 of the top rated French artists.
