Born inParis in 1964, Nicolas Rubinstein is a French visual artist. During his childhood alone, he discovered the arts (literature, cinema, artistic techniques) as well as history and science, which fascinated him. Then he decided to join the National School of Geology in Nancy and simultaneously produced his first plastic works while playing in an alternative rock group. Even when he began his career as a foreman, he eventually decided to abandon this path and focus on his passion for art and sculpture. To finance his training as a sculptor, he worked in decoration and special effects workshops in the world of advertising and the seventh art. This time dedicated to new technologies when they are not yet part of our day-to-day is a great source of inspiration for the artist. During the 90s, the theme of the animal is greater. The artist focuses particularly on the representation of the skeleton and the composition. He then began working on memory and transmission in 1999, where the bone remains present and symbolizes life and the importance of memory. In the 2000s, he turned to more modern art, enriching his artistic writing with a new symbolic element: the brain. Nicolas Rubinstein's latest works, the rat skeleton hidden in Mickey and the installation related to the elephant cemetery in Nantes, have been particularly noted by the public and critics.
