Olaf Breuning was born in 1970 in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and lives and works in New York. He has made shows in Kodama Gallery in Japan, Nils Staerk Contemporary in Denmark and Metro Pictures Gallery, New York, among many others. His success of critic remains on his ability to mix, under a curious sight, high and low culture. He revives artistic topics as fear to death or cultural differences, and connect them to the youth sub-cultures, rock and scary movies. His photographs and films, crowded of vikings, ghosts, monsters and dressed up beings, show characters with psychological modern obsessions, with a half-caste aesthetics, not withouth irony and some sense of humour. Primitivism, lost culture, and rebuild of concept of violence are some of his artistic worries.
