Shalom Neuman was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in the aftermath of WW II. He is the last surviving male of a large Jewish family, most of whom perished in Auschwitz during Nazi Germany’s Holocaust. His family escaped from Prague towards the end of the war and emigrated to Haifa, Israel where he spent his childhood. The family immigrated to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States when he was an adolescent.

Shalom studied painting and sculpture at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA where he received BFA and MFA degrees in both painting and sculpture. He was awarded the Damrosch Scholarship to study at the Fountainbleau School of Fine Arts in France where he won the Fountainbleau Beaux Arts Painting Prize.
