David Breuer-Weil was born in London in 1965 and continues to live and work in North London. His work frequently explores ideas of humanity, history and existence. Breuer-Weil initially studied at Central Saint Martin's School of Art before reading English at Clare College, Cambridge University. Described by Times art critic John Russell Taylor as a "colossal talent", Breuer-Weil has executed a series of monumental paintings symbolic of the trials and tribulations of modern life, known as his 'projects'. 'The project' was held in 2001 at the Camden Roundhouse; 'Project 2' was held at the Bargehouse, OXO Tower in 2003; and 'Project 3' was then held in conjunction with the Ben Uri Gallery in 2007. His recent, expansive exhibition 'Project 4' received widespread acclaim and showcased his prodigious and varied oeuvre.
"It is difficult to think of any series of contemporary British paintings more ambitious in scale and content than Breuer-Weil's Project" (The Times).
His monumental bronzes have been exhibited in numerous prestigious locations in London over recent months, including Alien (Grosvenor Gardens), Emergence (Hanover Square and Portman Square), and Visitor 1 (Golders Hill Park). His works have also featured several times in the Sotheby's selling exhibition 'Beyond Limits' at Chatsworth House.
