Artist David Schluss was born in 1943. He attended the ancient school in the city of Jaffa, the historical seaport in central Israel, where according to the artist, he was captivated by the mystical walls of the city, its austere religion, historic churches and monasteries. It was during these early years in Israel that Schluss sensed his desire to paints. Unable to afford the necessary painting materials, the young artist began sketching with charcoal and cheap pencils. The development of his craft his main objective, a young Schluss gave these sketches to anyone who showed interest in his work for free.

During his early 20's, Schluss and his family migrated to Montreal, Canada. In 1969, he enrolled in the renowned art school Ecole des Beaux Arts, and in 1971, he began to pursue a fine arts degree at the St. George Williams's Academy of Art. In Montreal, Schluss and fellow graduates formed a bohemian art association known as "Le Groupe Auto Didacte." The purpose of the group was to establish a shared philosophy and work environment from which inspiration could be drawn. His work during this period was influenced by the Russian surrealist Marc Chagall and drew reference from the biblical influences of his childhood. A period of personal difficulty for Schluss, critics of his work during this period describe it as "complex and haunting." The reviews from these early works brought Schluss' work to national attention, and thus, secured his prominent position in the art community.


In 1983, Schluss moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he continued to perfect his painting technique. Using no brush or spatula, he paints with his fingers, in effect "sculpting" the painting onto canvas. Says Schluss, "I start with the abstract and figures emerge. With the palm of my hand, I can get a play of light I could never achieve with a brush."


The artwork of David Schluss can be viewed at the Teffen Museum in Israel, the Museum of Modern Art in Fort Lauderdale, at the Sheraton in Tel Aviv, and in many private and public collections throughout the world. Galleries that have exhibited his work include the Hilton Gallery in Tel Aviv; Art Beaupue, Hong Kon; Galerie Matisse, Montreal; Galerie Gallien in Nice; and Wentworth Galleries throughout the United States.
