Chris Rubino has participated in many aspects of the design profession including title design for films (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines), illustration (Banana Republic, The New York Times), Art Directing Television Commercials (DirecTV, Ketel One), Hotel interiors (Distrikt Hotel, Ace Hotel) amongst other creative commissions. His printmaking background, initially focusing on posters, flyers and t-shirts, eventually transitioning to his own artwork, has heavily influenced his work.
Rubino is a co-founder of the Transitionist art movement, which simply states that the line of art & design is blurred beyond perception. His work has been featured in two solo exhibitions in New York, one in Hong Kong and a great number of group shows around the U.S., Europe & Japan as well as added to the permanent collection at the Museum of Design in Zurich. Most recently he was the subject of a documentary film entitled Love Kills Demons.
Rubino holds a BFA from Syracuse University, was selected as an ADC Young Gun and has served as a Board Member on the NYC Chapter of AIGA. Originally a Bostonian; New York City is now his adopted hometown.
