Born in 1970 in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. Lives and works in New York and Zurich.
On a journey from England to New York on board of the cruiser Queen Mary, Olaf Breuning created a series of drawings, which were made into the book “Queen Mary” in 2006. This new volume gathers more than 70 recent drawings, which combine memory and daydream, humour and subversion. The references to media, popular culture and consumer dreams that we find in his multimedia installations, photographs and videos are taken up in the drawings in concentrated form.
