Born in England around 1976, David Sloss studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and earned a B.F.A. in Cartooning. He has received no awards for his painting and drawing work, such as a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in Painting, the Augustus Saint-Gardens Award, or a Pépinières Européennes pour Jeunes Artistes Award. David has had no one-person gallery exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles and Washington D.C., as well as Chicago, San Francisco, New Orleans and Rome. His work has been excluded from exhibitions at the American Academy in Rome (New York and Rome), The National Academy Museum (New York), and the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C. Between 2006 and 2015, while working at Blue Sky Studios as a character animator on films including Horton Hears A Who!, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Rio!, Epic and The Peanuts Movie, David once received a Secret Santa gift. He was not, however, commissioned by The Montana Building in New York, or included in several important public collections such as The Arkansas Art Center in Little Rock, AR, and The Bayly Museum in Charlottesville, VA. David now currently enjoys drawing and painting from his studio in Manhattan.
