A favorite here in the Juxtapoz office, Wes Lang, recently traveled to Denmark for his first solo show in a museum space at the ARoS Aarhus Museum of Art. As part of the exhibition Wes built a full working studio and idoart.dk stopped by for a visit. Check out some photos and listen to Wes reflecting on his work in a video after the jump...

Wes Lang is always putting together some bodies of work, the type of paintings that the bad biker guys in Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure would love. This Fall, Lang will return to HALF Gallery with Blessings, a new body of work that will again look at the history of tattoo flash, imagery from the Old West, and even a little old school pornography. For the kids. We gathered a collection of Lang's work from the past year for you to check out... but go see it in person after November 7th.

From Exhibition A, who is selling this desired Wes Lang special edition box set: "Two years ago, Wes Lang completed his first artist-in-residence term at the Chateau Marmont, resulting in a suite of exceptional stationery drawings in the tradition of Martin Kippenberger. The series, entitled "Sittin' on a Rainbow" was presented as a one-night-only exhibition in the Howard Hughes penthouse and is one of his most sought-after bodies of work. Exhibition A has collaborated with Wes Lang to produce a selection of ten archival prints from the Chateau Marmont drawings in a limited edition box set of 100, to be officially released next week..."

We have been admirers of Wes Lang at Juxtapoz for a long time, especially his fantastic contributions to the Grateful Dead over the past year. Now, the tattoo and fine artist has contributed some flash designs fro Sleepy Jones and a new Jasper Boxer short look. Imagine the surprise from a significant other if this is what you are showing off on a first date... you will be a winner, trust us.

Juxtapoz favorite Wes Lang recently put out this gnarly print in conjunction with his artwork for the Grateful Dead Spring 1990 box set, though it's safe to say this piece is so good that Deadheads and GD detractors alike can enjoy.

One of our favorite NYC-based artists, Wes Lang, is set to open a new solo show, Here Comes Sunshine, at the Lower East Side's Half Gallery this May 17, 2012. We follow Lang's blog closely, and he is good about updating it with oldies and newbies, and we recommend spending some time looking at his Americana meets tattoo meets stream of consciousness. And it is always good.

We wish the print was this baby drawing, alas, Wes Lang has released two screenprints with V1 Gallery in conjunction with his solo show at the Copenhagen space, Life and How to Live It. The prints were handmade in Denmark on chalk coated paper. Looks after the jump . . .

We were wandering around Wes Lang's site this morning, and saw that he has been living at the famed Chateau Marmont for the past month or some, building a body of drawings, all culminating in a one-night show, Sittin' on a Rainbow, at the Hotel this Thursday, June 23rd.
