aBOUT THE ARTIST
David Schluss was born in 1943. He started painting at a very early age in Israel. He attended school in the ancient city of Jaffa, the historical seaport in central Israel. It was during these early years in Israel that Schluss sensed his overwhelming desire to paint.
Influence from great masters such as Chagall, Miro, and Botero inspired Schluss to create his own individualized style and technique of painting. He began experimenting by painting with his hands, using no paintbrush or spatula. He says, “With the palm of my hands I can get a play of light that I could never achieve with a brush. I start with the abstract, and figures emerge.”
Today, Schluss paints only using his hands. Using his fingers as paintbrushes, he sculpts out images, textures and colors directly onto the canvas. It is with this unique vision that Schluss creates his whimsical and playful images. The joy and enthusiasm that David Schluss depicts in all of his works are signature to the graceful, elegance that exemplifies the beauty of his artistic style of painting. In 1983, David Schluss opened a Studio in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he still continues to perfect his painting technique. He travels back and forth from Florida to Tel-Aviv, drawing inspirations for his work. His paintings are currently being displayed in the Teffen Museum in Israel, The Museum of Modern Art in Fort Lauderdale, and in many private and public collections throughout the world.
