Noah Breuer received his BFA in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design, his MFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University and a Graduate Research Certificate in traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking and papermaking from Kyoto Seika University.
His creative work examines themes of family, identity, labor, and diaspora. Exploring the fusion of traditional printmaking techniques and 21st-century tools and technology is fundamental to his art practice. His current research investigates early 20th century domestic textile design in Europe and the legacy of Jewish-owned textile printing companies in Czech Bohemia and their role within that economic and cultural landscape.
Breuer has had recent solo exhibitions at Atelier Circulaire in (Montreal), VisArts Center (Rockville, MD), Space Gallery (Portland, ME), Left Field Gallery (San Luis Obispo, CA) Penn State University Altoona (Altoona, PA), and Spring Hill College (Mobile, AL). His work is in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library, the Watson Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Brooklyn Museum.
His artist books have been published by Small Editions (Brooklyn), Spudnik Press (Chicago) and the San Francisco Center for the Book. And he has been awarded residencies and fellowships by Dieu Donné (NY), Bullseye Projects (CA), San Francisco Center for the Book (CA), California Society of Printmakers, Kala Art Institute, (CA), Hotel Pupik (Scheifling, Austria), Grin City, (IA), Vermont Studio Center, (VT), and Ox-Bow School of Art, (MI).
