Travis Schlaht was born in 1975 in North Dakota, USA. As a figurative painter who cultivates restraint, his work is recognized and appreciated by a broad international artistic community.

After earning a Bachelor of Arts from the University of the Pacific, in Stockton, California in 1997, he moved to New York to further his knowledge of academic art, joining Jacob Collins' Water Street Atelier. His artistic investigations and growing technical mastery led him to devoting himself exclusively to painting. Gifted with superb drawing skills, Travis Schlaht has mastered the art of portraits, landscapes and still life. He instills grace to each of his subjects using powerful, subtle lines. Never stiff, his paintings reflect tremendous spontaneity through vivacious touches of color and dexterity, while imparting a sense of incompleteness. Jostled by concise power, his contour lines project his subjects from the canvas, imparting them with life and substance. 

Yet Travis Schlaht does not let himself be distracted by technical prowess, instead partaking in a constant need to share with the world that surrounds him. Whether he focuses on a model, an object or a landscape, he is able to capture the essence of his environment with rare insight. His brush strokes are devoted to a world of emotion, becoming extensions of feelings. His work echoes our inner world and buried emotions. 

Travis Schlaht's work is represented by several galleries throughout the United States and has integrated many private and institutional collections around the world. 

He works between New York and Paris, where he lives with his wife Kate Lehman and their two children.
