Chris DeRubeis LIVE in the Gallery!
Quite simply one of the most exciting artists working today: Chris DeRubeis has flew in from his native USA for a UK tour. The showcase appearance was here in Weybridge where he made a special appearance at the Wyecliffe Gallery, presenting his collection of astonishing “Abstract Sensualism” artworks.
DeRubeis was every bit the rockstar artist, the epitome of big-hearted laid-back charm and well... There's no other way to put it really.... Cool! He spent four hours chatting to collectors and signing purchased works with additional sketches and witticisms. A huge thanks to all our guests who were part of the party!
A student of the acclaimed Pasadena Art Centre: his professors tried to convince him to choose a "more commercial style" of art but DeRubeis was never satisfied painting... Instead, scouring the local mechanics, scrap metal yards and demolition traders; he treated metal with fire, acid, chemicals and paint to produce unique, beautiful pieces of art. A truly distinctive vision was born!
