About The Artist

Wesley was born and educated in Seattle, Washington, where all of the paintings below were created. He has traveled extensively around the U.S. and the world, hitching rides and working short stints. By piecing together personal photographs with photographs found while traveling, he constructs each piece as an ode to our holidays and our adventures. Each photograph is slightly stripped of its original context and re-worked into a narrative exploring the imagery of journeys past and present. Multi-layered stencils are paired with free hand can control. Update: He is currently traveling the U.S. in his 77' CHevy Van with his girlfriend Jamie.
