David Breuer-Weil was born in London in 1965.  He went to Clare College, Cambridge University where he soon became involved with fringe theatrical and artistic groups. After Cambridge he was awarded a bursary at Sotheby's and he spent the next few years training in different artistic departments and disciplines, starting with Old Master Paintings and ending in the Impressionist and Modern Art Department. The years he spent in direct physical contact with works by the masters of the past enhanced his knowledge of both technique and his own artistic direction.  During this period he combined working for an auction house with his own artistic practice.  Over the next few years he created a large body of small-scale "Neracian" works on paper, many of these were so small that they are stored in stamp albums.  It was also during this period that he developed the personal iconography that would culminate in the Project some years later.  The Project has been developed over many years and has been realized in 4 series (Project 1, Project 2, Project 3, and Project 4) of paintings.  Project 4 has just recently been completed and has not yet been exhibited.  Breuer-Weil has also recently returned to sculpture, producing and exhibiting new work to critical acclaim.
