FEATURED ARTIST: OLAF BREUNING
Olaf Breuning is a contemporary Swiss artist whose works introduce viewers to surreal and humorous worlds through performance, film, sculpture, and drawing. His Central Park installation 'Clouds', gave a highlight of color to the park, with its bright-blue aluminum clouds, held 35 feet above the ground. In 'The Art Freaks', a series of 2011 color photographs, Breuning painted nude models' bodies to evoke the signature styles of influential 20th-century artists like Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Jackson Pollock, and On Kawara, questioning our relationship to supposed masterpieces, as well as our mediated experience of them through reproductions. Breuning currently lives and works between New York, NY and Zürich, Switzerland. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Kunsthalle Hamburg, the Kunsthaus Zürich, and the Sammlung Goetz in Munich, among others. For HENZEL STUDIO, Olaf Breuning created a unique design that is freeform with variable pile heights to replicate intertwined human silhouettes. Currently available in our Quick Ship Program (limited stock pcs).
