Olaf Breuning, Chris Croft, 1998



Olaf Breuning's work employs highly recognisable cultural clichés to emphasise a continuity between daily life and the fantastic realms of fashion, film and TV that he references. His work is often critical of what he regards as the over-codification of much recent art and is steeped in pop culture to ensure that it remains accessible.

Olaf Breuning was born in 1970 in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. He currently lives and works in New York and Zurich.
