Daniel Maltzman was born in Los Angeles, California in 1963, the middle child of three boys. Maltzman initially pursued a successful career as a night club promoter and clothing manufacturer which he used to start his budding art career. After exhibiting his work in several galleries in the late 1990s, he began to receive recognition as an influential and controversial artist. Maltzman’s work explores the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and advertisement, which span a variety of media, including painting. Working with layers of paint and imagery that exude energy and life, Maltzman draws the viewer into a world full of movement. This signature style illustrates Maltzman’s ability to juxtapose abstract mixed media with a vivid feminine figure. The appeal of Maltzman’s work has drawn the attention of collectors including Scott Painter, Steve Tisch, Eugenio Lopez, The Bill & Hilary Clinton Art Collection, The Galen Center, and many others. Musicians, actors, and celebrities also fawn to Maltzman’s work, such as Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, Bruce Springsteen’s band, Bill Gross and Petra Ecclestone. Each of his pieces is one of a kind, done meticulously with utmost attention to detail.
Sports play a large part in Maltzman’s life. After adorning the walls of Travis Mathews Co. with his Golf inspired paintings, Maltzman was recruited to receive the honor of being the official artist of the 2014 AT&T Pebble Beach PGA Tour.
Charity is a high priority for artist Daniel Maltzman; this year alone, Maltzman donated paintings to over a dozen charitable events and causes. Maltzman teamed up with the Harlem Globe Trotters to co-paint a piece for the Susan G. Komen for The Cure.
Maltzman is currently exhibiting with Coda Gallery in Palm Desert CA, Lisa Russell Collection in Austin TX, Buckhead Art in Atlanta GA, and Chloe Gallery in San Francisco CA.
