About Reuben

Reuben Rude was born in San Francisco, as the sun was setting on the Free Love era. His bohemian parents then moved “back to the land” to the woods of Northern California, where he spent the better part of his childhood without a television. This lack of technology forced him to spend almost every waking hour drawing and painting. When he moved back to the city to attend art school, he got into all the usual trouble with graffiti writers, skateboarders and art students. He now lives in San Francisco with his wife and eight-year-old daughter, and yes, a television. However, he still spends most of his waking hours drawing and painting. Sometimes he even gets paid for it.

"mapping the mind only to be turned into a blur and swell of earth tones. i can sense the feeling and journey of the search. amazing."

"Very Nice!I like the paper collage backgrounds. The hand in his head dude looks like Barry's on market and 6th. Rock out with your cock out!"

"There is a perpetual sense of sadness, painting after painting. The subjects look depressed. The palette, although rich and colourful, feels dim and dark."

"Very interesting. It looks as though Mr.Rude has a touch with old people.. The hand is well done. But I'm not sure what the old man stiking his head into his own head means. To my opinion, they are both very good."
