Breuning’s works are comprised of bright colours and are influenced by a number of diverse and eclectic sources. Informed by his own experiences. His work humorously reflects on his observation of human behaviour and interaction and contemporary cultural and political concerns. Breuning avoids divulging the deeper meanings behind his artistic endeavors and instead often chooses to create based solely on aesthetic appeal. His refreshing approach to his practice has led to him becoming internationally known.

Olaf Breuning’s recent exhibitions have included The Life at Metro Pictures, New York (2015); The HOME Trilogy at Metro Pictures, New York (2013); Human Nature at Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, London (2012); The Art Freaks at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2011); and Life is a Wheel, Colour Studies at Kodama Gallery, Tokyo/Kyoto (2009).
