(The Kuhn Family Gallery) At 80 years old, Daniel Itzler walked into a gallery in Italy and witnessed a Joan Miro up close for the first time. It was his “aha” moment. Despite never picking up a paint brush, he was so inspired by the beautiful art, that upon his return home he began experimenting with oil and non-traditional mediums. This passion unleashed Daniel’s inner artist and just like that his new career began.
Daniel is a U.S. Army veteran, a serial entrepreneur and holds a variety of patents. In 1945 Daniel started Daljack Industries, a plumbing supply company that he took public in 1972, and was the marketing consultant for the United States Small Business Administration. He has been a member of the American Society of Inventors, the New York Academy of Science, and the American Society of Professional Chaplains.
His passion for art may have been realized later in life, but his determination is that of artists half his age. Daniel’s works in mixed-media, acrylic, mosaic and ceramics capture many themes and many moods. Every piece possesses a beautiful and unique color palette that Daniel blends together despite being colorblind.
