Correspondence with Olaf Breuning

Meet Olaf Breuning 

Olaf is a NYC-based Swiss artist who works in almost every medium possible to get his creative energies out of his head & into the world. As you can see from his previous works - - Olaf does everything from huge sculptures to interpretive dance routines (!!) and has collaborated with great brands such as Hermes, Surface to Air and Beck - the musician. We caught up with Olaf in Toronto at the unveiling & party for his latest sculptures entitled - Guardians - which are permanent installations in Liberty Village. When we mentioned our Correspondence project with Olaf he said that he doesn't really write by hand anymore - it's all done by computers. Luckily, we were able to convince him otherwise and we now have perhaps the last bit of handwriting Olaf will ever concede too. Thanks buddy!
