Wolfe Von Lenkiewicz's Man Ray series were created in 2017 following a commission from the Hôtel de Crillon, Paris.
Wolfe Von Lenkiewicz (born 1966) is a British artist known for his artistic reconfigurations of well-known imageries from art history and visual culture to create ambiguous compositions that question art historical discourses. He lives and works in London. His works primarily deal with the appropriation of language and mythology by juxtaposing elements such as religious figures, pop culture icons, literary characters and motifs. Lenkiewicz’s drawings and paintings often reference iconic imageries, including those by Albrecht Dürer, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Hieronymus Bosch. Lenkiewicz transforms Dürer’s Self-Portrait (1500) in his Werewolf (2011), referencing Jacques Derrida's The Beast and the Sovereign. Lenkiewicz's latest body of works are inspired by Hieronymus Bosch, transforming The Garden of Earthly Delights (ca.1490) into a 'post-historic, trans-cultural manuscript'.
