Gary Breeze

(1966–)
Since his training at the Norwich School of Art, Gary Breeze set up his letter cutting workshop in Diss, Norfolk and has received commissions for prestigious memorials including The Soviet War memorial at The Imperial War Museum, the memorial to the victims of the Bali Bombings at Clive Steps, St James' Park. He has recently completed work for the new Scottish Parliament building and the new archaeological department of Southampton University. Breeze's work, both witty and inventive, has contributed much to the revival of letter cutting and has been exhibited throughout the UK. His solo exhibition Musaeum took place at the New Art Centre in 2004.


In the summer of 2007, Gary Breeze co-curated the exhibition 'Roche Riddles', which brought together writers and letter-cutters who created new works for the walled garden at Roche Court. A number of new riddles were composed and engraved into stone by some of the most talented letter-cutters working today. In January 2012, he had an exhibition at the Norwich Castle Museum entitled 'The Inscribed Landscape'.
