Olaf Breuning

Artist Profile Olaf Bruening

Swiss-born artist, Olaf Breuning, currently lives and works in New York City. In his photography, sculpture, installations, and works on paper, Breuning merges humor, kitsch, and pop culture to investigate the relationship between high and low art, often calling into question our assumptions regarding historically designated “masterpieces” by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock. Breuning's works also tend toward the fantastic or the surreal, depicting subjects in an ironic, bizarre, or illusory manner.
