David Schluss Biography
About David Schluss
Born in Israel in the year 1942, David Schluss started painting at a very early age. David went to school in the city of Jaffa, on the historical seaport in central Israel. In this city, the austere religion of the historical temples, monasteries, and churches, and the mysterious walls of the city caught his eye. During these early years of his life, David noticed the burning desire he had to paint.
At first, he was unable to afford the materials needed to paint, so he began painting with cheap pencils and charcoal. He would also give his paintings away to anyone who showed any interest in the work he did. The main objective he had at that point was developing his craft. When he was in his early 20s, he and his family moved to Canada in Montreal. In the year 1969, he decided to enroll himself into the art school, Ecole des Beaux Arts. A short while after he enrolled, he started holding private lessons with the students in his school. In the year 1971, he decided to enroll in the University of Sir George Williams so that he could earn his fine arts degree.
Schluss was influenced by great masters such as Botero, Chagall, and Miro to create his own individual technique and style of painting. He even started experimenting with painting with no paintbrush, a spatula, or even his hands.
In the year 1983, Schluss decided to open up a studio in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, a place where he continually experiments with new creations. Currently,David Schluss’ most famous paintings (most sought after) are his Joyful Expressions and Perfect Moments paintings.
