David Breuer-Weil,the son of two immigrant parents (his father fled Vienna in 1938 and his mother emigrated from Copenhagen in the 1960’s), grew up in North London. His father, who was a successful sculptor, painter and jewellery designer, encouraged his son’s artistic talent from an early age. Breuer-Weil studied first at Central St Martin’s School of Art and then at Clare College, Cambridge, where he became very involved in the fringe artistic and theatrical scene.
After university, he was awarded a bursary at Sotheby’s, where he trained in various artistic disciplines, from Old Masters to Modern Art. From 1991- 1994 he lived in Ramat Efel, Israel, where he worked for Sotheby’s as a Judaica and picture expert. He also continued to practice his art alongside, and began incorporating a more vibrant colour palette inspired by the Israeli landscape. In 1997 Breuer-Weil left Sotheby’s to become a consultant expert for Swiss dealership, de Pury and Luxembourg Art, allowing him to dedicate more time to his artistic career.
Breuer-Weil has exhibited in London (Ben Uri, Roundhouse, Boundary Gallery) and Tel Aviv (Engel Gallery). In 2005 he exhibited with Chris Ofili at Closing the Door?: Immigrants to Britain, 1905- 2005 at the Jewish Museum. Breuer-Weil is currently living and working in London.
