In association with Christies, the artist has placed several bronze sculptures across the capital for Londoners and tourists to enjoy.

Those who pass through Portman Square can see a few giant heads popping up in the ground including Brainbox (above) and Emergence (below).

Meanwhile, set against the background of St Pancras Church on Euston Road, visitors passing through will be able to spot Breuer-Weil’s larger Alien and Brothers works, to reinterpret the building known for its Greek statuary.

Finally, Cavendish Square is the setting for Visitor, another giant head to complete the trail of works dotted all over London.

The sculptures are on public display as part of David Breuer-Weil: A Private Sales Exhibition organised by Christies. All of the sculptures displayed are offered for private sale.

Talking about the open air exhibition, the artist said: “Public sculpture is the ultimate street art. Far more people see them than works in museums. I have attempted to distil a great deal of emotion and meaning into simple sculptural forms that are dotted throughout London. Christie’s, who are hosting this unprecedented multi venue exhibition, has a very rich history in 20th century sculpture.”

This is not the first time that Londoners have experienced his work across the capital, having previously exhibited his work in locations including Grosvenor Gardens and Marble Arch.

The exhibition is being staged to coincide with Christie’s “Sculpture in the Square” that showcases pieces by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Antony Caro and other leading sculptors.

For those interested in visiting the locations at which the sculptures have been placed, here are the details for the venues:
