"My creations are essentially an extension of my personality emerging from my inner self. The emotions represent the deeper meaning of what my images portray. The enthusiasm evoked from my work reflects my passion for love, happiness, energy, spirituality and ultimately the essence of life. I hope that my collectors enter my world through my playful images and come out with the same feelings of joy and excitement that I use to create."

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.

Unable to afford the necessary painting materials as a young artist, Schluss began sketching with charcoal and cheap pencils. He gave his sketches away to anyone who showed interest in his work. His main objective was the development of his craft. 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.' Soon after, he began teaching private lessons to other students of the school. In 1971, he pursued his interests in art education at the University of Sir George Williams in Montreal where he earned his fine arts degree.

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 paint-brush 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 paint brushes, 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. He travels back and forth from the United States 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.
