Eric Wesley was born in Los Angeles in 1973. He earned a BA from the University of California, Los Angeles, and is a co-founder of the Mountain School of Art. Wesley’s sculptural and mixed media works don’t seek the extreme but rather the expression of a concept – more often than not enjoying a joke, though not at its expense. Wesley’s work has been shown at Bortolami Gallery, New York; Maureen Paley, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Art Basel, Switzerland; P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center, New York, and elsewhere.
