All of David Cheifetz's paintings that are currently available at Gallery 1261 will be offered at the normal price with a catch: 40% of the sale price will be donated to any charity, relief fund, or good cause of the buyer’s choice. This will be as open and flexible as possible in order to allow the buyer to help those in need on a community/local level, if desired. Gallery 1261 will hold the initial payment (60%) and wait for proof of donation (40%).
David is an internationally acclaimed and collected artist who continues to push the limits of contemporary realist oil painting.
"Reflecting the language of dreams, these dark, hyperrealistic tableaux suggest bizarre and intriguing narratives. Cheifetz paints alla prima, an oil painting technique in which wet paint is applied to previous layers of wet paint. He works without detailed underpainting or studies, creating atmosphere through prominent, expressive brushstrokes and strong chiaroscuro." -Artsy.net
