Born in London. Studied art at the St. Martin’s School of Art and at Cambridge University where he became involved with fringe theatrical and artistic groups. Between 1991- 1994 he lived in Israel and was the head of Department of Modern Art and Judaica at Sotheby’s.
Weil is one of the greatest artists of the second generation since the School of London (the well known group of British Artists as Francis Bacon, Lucian Fruid, Leon Kossoff and Frank Auerbach).
Weil has been known primarily as a symbolist, reflecting with humor an agonized world of the imagination. His work contains an entire vocabulary of visual icons that warn of the ramifications of recent history and the threat to the environment.
Weil’s work explore in the most profoundly emotive manner the state of current civilization and the impact on the 20th and 21st century consciousness of recent history, whilst at the same time preserving archetypal thoughts and themes existing in the most ancient art.
