Tree of Life Sculpture

Short Bio of David Klass, Designer of the Tree of Life

David Klass graduated from Pratt Institute in 1966 where he studied art and architecture. He went on to work with Theodore Roszak, and then set up his own studio in New York City. To further his understanding of the human body in 1973 and 1974, Mr. Klass studied anatomy at Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons. Through his deep understanding of anatomy he developed a unique sculptural approach of teaching anatomy and has instructed other artists for over 25 years. His work is known for its powerful realism. In addition to his human figures, his knowledge of anatomy and structures has allowed him to create animal sculptures with equal ease and facility. In 1991, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City commissioned him to create two life-size horses for their Arms and Armor Wing. David Klass is a member of The National Sculpture Society and has been showing his work professionally since 1962.  His work is in numerous private and public collections.
