David Breuer-Weil was born in London in 1965 and studied at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art under Henry Moore’s assistant Shelley Fausset and at Clare College, Cambridge. Breuer-Weil is famed for his monumental solo shows of vast painted canvases referred to as the Projects. ‘The Project’ was held in 2001 at the Roundhouse, Camden; ‘Project 2’ was held at the Bargehouse, OXO Tower in 2003; ‘Project 3’ was then held in conjunction with the Ben Uri Gallery and Museum in 2007 and at the beginning of 2013 ‘Project 4’ was staged in The Vaults, Waterloo. Alongside the Projects Breuer-Weil continues to produce paintings, sculpture and smaller scale works on paper.
