The Making of a Sculptor

March 25, 2010

Born in 1949 in Los Angeles, Jeff Tritel did not embark upon his lifelong passion – sculpting – until the age of eighteen.

At the time he was enrolled in college, majoring in mathematics. His artist roommate was involved in the process of copying a masterpiece as an assignment. Jeff’s argument began with “Can’t you do something original?”

As the argument heated up, the roommate finally stated, “If you think it is so easy, let’s see you try it!” Jeff immediately went to the art supply store, bought a large quantity of clay and began work on a self-portrait.

He was hooked, changing his major to art and graduating in 1976 from the University of California with a BA in fine art and a BFA in sculpture.
