Olaf Breuning |1970 , Born in Schaffhouse, Switzerland

An artist with a strong sense of humour and cynicism, Olaf Breuning creates work which tackles the consequences of a society where a pop culture still rules. The artist doesn't restrict his paintings to one subject, he mixes the references, combines different worlds and creates a new aesthetic that pays no heed to the rules and composition of the image : what he expresses is strange, imaginary and always displays a touch of irony.

Olaf Breuning lives between New York and Zurich, and employs photography, drawing, video and installations in his work ; he participated in the 2011 Venice Biennale.
