b.1970. Manchester, Connecticut; education: 1991, Bachelor of Fine Arts City of London Polytechnic, London, England; 1992, Beaver College, PA; Schaller (pronounced shay-ler) defines his oeuvre with uniquely sophisticated compositions. Provocative and whimsical, Schaller propels the viewer into scenes of seemingly unrelated subjects, his own captivating and complex sonatas. Simultaneously, they are pop and edgy, esoteric and direct. Using encaustic* paints, Schaller uses lost and found images, words and language, to paint with a precision and intricacy not normally found in encaustic paintings. His approach is expressionistic, contemporary,
and painterly, with powerful brush strokes that are set instantaneously. Schaller’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States. He is frequently published in magazines and newspapers, chosen for juried art exhibitions and selected for special projects, commissions and murals. Currently he is working on a 30 feet mural for the Philadelphia Arts Commission to be placed in their transportation centers. His work can also be seen on the set of “Friends” for the 2002 and 2003 season. In 2002, Schaller received a highly coveted fellowship from the
Common Wealth of Pennsylvania. In 1998, Schaller was the recipient of the prestigious Philadelphia Museum of Art Purchase Award. Recent juried exhibitions include ‘’Encaustic works ‘01 and ‘03’’ (he was one of 15 artists selected for the exhibit from a field of 200). Schaller is a philanthropic and committed artist who lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and three children.
