Wes Lang‘s obsession with the Grateful Dead began in high school when he first painted the band’s images on the back of a friend’s denim jacket. Since then, the Brooklyn-based artist has had his work exhibited at galleries and museums around the world, shattering many of our notions of history, music and art. Nothing must have compared, however, to his recent commission to create the artwork for the Dead’s boxed set Spring 1990 and in this video Lang details for us the beginnings of his longtime love affair with the legendary band. The limited edition Wes Lang x Warrior Skull print may be purchased online at The Pancake Epidemic.
