The contemporary American artist Wes Lang has returned. Lang was the creative behind Kanye West’s YEEZUS graphics, and today he returns to the news feed with a new print edition. French dealer Almine Rech recently announced a print collaboration with the artist dubbed ‘For The Good Times.’ Mr. Lang is known for his intriguing drawings, sculptures, and more. His work often incorporates imagery from American history, including Native Americans, with a controversial aesthetic.
The print itself features a skull character clad in a Native American headdress. The gallery released a statement about the artist and his work. They stated: “Over the last several decades, artist Wes Lang has been honing his craft involving, amongst other things, a tireless, obsessive mining of a post-pop American landscape. A great many of the artist’s influences are a function of a distinct autobiographical experience with certain exceptions.”
The print measures in at 58 by 44 centimeters, arriving signed and numbered in an edition of 75 with 20 artist proofs. You can pick yours up now on the Almine Rech Editions website. The print also comes with word of an upcoming exhibition with the gallery in Fall 2020 from Wes Lang.
