Tal Slutzker, barely 25 years old, has decided to stage the first full-fledged, high-profile solo exhibition of his paintings. Some would ask, “Why so soon, when the artist is still so young?” Others, however, who are familiar with this young man and aware of his resumé as an artist, are demanding to know what has taken him so long.

You see, Tal Slutzker has a history. Painting since he was eight, studying privately with artist Zachar Sherman at age nine, Slutzker was already being hailed as a child prodigy by the time he was 10. At 12 he felt confident enough about his artistic skills to send a photograph of one of his paintings to then-president of the United States Bill Clinton, who sent a warm letter back, wishing him further success as an artist.
