Ardabus Rubber is a Los Angeles based painter and toy artist working in both 2-Dimensional and 3D Sculptural artworks. His humble beginnings on a farm in Maine, observing his mother’s career as an illustrator, were uprooted and replanted in California at age 13. A self-taught artist, Ardabus Rubber’s exploratory ambition melded with gritty day-to-day life. Ardabus Rubber’s painting seeks freedom through artwork by combining an appropriation of graphic pop art with interstellar graffiti-like textures. Extremely autobiographical, Ardabus Rubber’s paintings tell stories of his experiences and artistic processes through subversive multi-dimensional abstraction.
In 2008, after years dabbling in mixed media on canvas, Ardabus Rubber stepped into 3-Dimensionally painted and sculpted artworks on designer vinyl art toys. Toy art, or customizing, has since become a significant facet of his practice. Ardabus Rubber’s’ hand-painted vinyl toys as well as his canvas artwork have exhibited in Galleries internationally, and are slated for production release with major toy art industry contributors.
