Before he designed the t-shirts for Kanye West's Yeezus Tour, a lot of people had no idea who Wes Lang was. The Jersey-born, Brooklyn-based artist obviously didn't start creating art around the time of that project, and that collaboration is arguably not the most impressive thing on his resumé to date.
