Celebrated and collected by the likes of Kanye West, the work of artist Wes Lang is among the most sought-after in contemporary art. Furthered by Lang’s enigmatic character, each piece is filled with meaning, and depict some of his biggest inspirations.
Made to commemorate his upcoming solo exhibition, “Wes Lang: Taking Off For Other Dimensions,” the artist partnered with Swedish denim professionals Indigofera and Copenhagen’s V1 Gallery to release a limited edition woolen blanket. Renowned for his somewhat manic style, overrun with skeletal imagery and Cy Twombly-esque finishes, the blanket features a double-sided design depicting skulls and grim reaper-like figures on horseback. The word “NOBODY” accompanies both sides of the composition, and adds that edge of confusion and mystery Lang has become so well known for.
“Wes Lang: Taking Off For Other Dimensions” is scheduled to take place at V1’s sister gallery Eighteen from September 20 to October 19, 2019. The blankets will be available from Thursday, September 19 at V1 Gallery, v1gallery.com, and at Pancho & Lefty in Österåker, Sweden. Measuring in at 150 x 200 cm, each blanket is made in Norway from 100% Norwegian lambswool, and comes in at a reasonable $497.
