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 there that the mystical walls of the city and the austere religion of the historic churches, temples and monasteries captivated him. It was during these early years in Israel that Schluss sensed his overwhelming desire to paint.
“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.”
David’s 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.
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.
