Product Overview

Wes Langs (born 1972) first monograph focuses on his works on paper--complicated arrangements of his typically American iconography, expertly rendered in ink and paint and juxtaposed in riotous combinations. These images, selected from a decades worth of material, range from the artists covers for a 2012 Grateful Dead box set chronicling their epic 1990 tour (fulfilling a teenage dream of Langs) to precise classical drawing reminiscent of a nineteenth-century illustrator, in a dizzying mix of American history, biker culture, tattoo iconography, ornament, Native American art, pin-ups, newspaper headlines and Taoist texts. This book--the only Wes Lang monograph in print--contains an essay by author James Frey and will undoubtedly appeal to both Langs substantial online following and to fans of Americana.
