David Hendler was an Israeli painter.
Born in 1904, Kiev, Ukraine.
Died in 1983, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Handler was known as "The painter of Tel Aviv" because the city and especially its inhabitants were the subjects of his work. Handlerfocused on drawing. His drawings were painted with a fingernail and varied in few watercolor stains. Each drawing eternalized the atmosphere of a moment through a few modest lines or brush strokes, whatever the subject matter.

Handler had three solo exhibitions at the Tel Aviv museum (1946, 1951, 1981) and one at the Bezalel museum, Jerusalem (1961).
Handler received the Dizengoff Prize in 1938 and 1945.
