Throughout history, there have been only a select few artists who have changed the way we view art. In the beginning, early man described his world by painting rock walls, using crushed berries and blood. When the first artists discovered pigments and began painting on paper and canvas, they eventually created distinct styles such as Impressionism, Abstract, Pointillism, Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, Surrealism and any other “ism” they could come up with. Since then, most artists have copied or cloned these styles by simply adding their own spin.
Then came along Chris DeRubeis…. Born in 1978, it wasn’t long before DeRubeis showed a very early proclivity for drawing. He drew on many materials he could find at home to express his talents. This talent was nurtured to the fullest by his family, and at the age of 11 his grandfather gave Chris his first airbrush. After watching Chris use his airbrush for the very first time, his grandfather proclaimed that Chris DeRubeis was to become the artist his Grandfather always wanted him to be and would inevitably share his talents on the world’s grand stage.
