Noah Breuer is an American artist originally from Berkeley, California. His creative work examines themes of family, identity, labor and diaspora. His current project examines the visual legacy of "Carl Breuer and Sons," his jewish family’s former textile printing business, founded 1897 in Bohemia and seized by the Nazis in 1939. Breuer holds a BFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design, an MFA from Columbia University and a graduate research certificate in traditional woodblock printmaking and paper-making from Kyoto Seika University in Japan.

Breuer's recent solo exhibitions include Reclamation at the National Czech and Slovak Museum & Library (Cedar Rapids, IA 2023), Table Settings at Urban Glass (Brooklyn, NY, 2023), Something Stolen / Something New at Atelier Circulaire, (Montreal, QC, 2022) , Cabbage at VisArts (Rockville, MD 2021).

His artist books have been published by the San Francisco Center for the Book, as well as, Small Editions in Brooklyn, New York. His work is in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library and the Watson Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
