Hi folks,
I’m Arthur ‘Art’ Ruebens, an experienced portrait artist specializing in painting oil portraits from photos.
I was born in 1945 and raised in Brooklyn, NYC but now spend most of my time in Saigon, Vietnam with my wife. My father was a sculptor and my mother was a high school art teacher so even as a youngster I was always surrounded by art and creative people.

What the critics say
‘Art Ruebens has known since childhood that it is paint that flows thru his veins. Art attended the Columbia University in New York with a Fine Arts major. After college he began work as a freelance illustrator with such clients as Coca Cola, Sax Fifth Avenue, and a dozen other well known corporations. He later taught at the Art Students League. Ruebens’ portraits create mood and mystery on canvas at times painted so realistic you feel as though the subjects will reach out and touch you’.
