Weiser was born in Montana. He makes paintings which mix stark geometric patterns with textured paint surfaces.[1] His work is a mixture of figurative and abstract imagery and references art and design from the 1980s and 1990s.[2]

Weiser received his MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts in 2005, after receiving his BFA from Cooper Union. He is currently married to artist Francesca DiMattio.
