David Topaz was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel
He worked as a flight crew member .
Topaz began painting after the Yom Kippur War. His works range among black & white sketches, water-colors and oil on canvas. His scenes travel between hallucination and fantasy, sexuality and grotesque, surrealistic and decora tive. He has derived much inspiration from his "time in the air," watching the world from 35,000 feet.
Forever a traveler between sceneries, culture and colors Topaz paintings have been exhibited in Tel Aviv, New York, Melbourne and Cape Town.
