Wes Lang

Wes Lang professes a sometimes veiled reverence for life through his tattoo-inspired imagery. Combining the same deft maneuvers of brush as he has long-employed with the skin-artist’s needle, Lang translates masculine tattoo templates and works from within the confines of stylized graphics of flash art. With the keenest eye toward our ephemeral fringe — Lang champions human faults, celebrating the patterns in our rapaciousness — a familiar vernacular comfort becomes the voice of longing for a world without anchor. Dancing through the bone-yard of America’s tattered narrative, Lang embraces both the darkness visible in gallows humor and the risky taunting of viewers in the face of their own taboos.


Wes Lang’s work has been seen in exhibitions at Alexander and Bonin, New York, Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, Dealim Museum, Seoul, Peres Projects, Berlin, V1 Gallery, Copenhagen, Galleri Loyal, Stockholm, and Museo de la Cuidad de Mexico, Mexico City, among others. In 2009 he was named one of Interview Magazine’s top fifteen young artists.
