DeRubeis Fine Art – Level 1, Banyan Court
Abstract sensualism artist Chris DeRubeis has opened his first gallery in Waikiki at International Market Place. DeRubeis’ paintings showcase the world of celestial abstraction that captures colored soaked light, which appears to spring from his artwork. Wth soft lines, he weaves together forms of metal sculpture and paint to make his composition flow in harmony. Each work is a unique original as DeRubeis uses structures and waves of light to build weightless, diaphanous forms. Colors flow seamlessly from one hue to the next, while the transparency of his layers of paint creates the illusion of incredible depth.
