Arts and Crafts: Wes Lang
Filed under: Arts and Crafts | Posted by:

It’s finally happened, after ages of trying to source Wes Lang material from other sites he’s finally up and started his own blog. If you’re not familiar with Lang’s artwork, it’s best described as all the best and worst parts of this great land of ours showcased by meticulous pencil drawings, collages and more. With past shows titled “Are You Ready For the Country?” “I Shall Be Released” and “Going All The Way for the U.S.A.,” Wes’ world is one filled with Bourbon, Waylon, Transcendentalism, and sexy ladies looking for a good time.

In his own words Lang comes across as a storyteller, weaving truth with myth and his own imaginings to create a visual history. “I like to take American history and then completely ignore it. I come at it visually, taking images and telling my own story. It comes out of criticism and great love. There are problems [with America], and we all know that, but I’m attracted to the dark side of things.”

While a lot of his work is NSFW,  enjoy a safe assortment after the jump. If you’d like to delve deeper into Wes Lang’s work you can view select pieces on his blog or enjoy a short video with the artist on the Interview website.
