The enchanting work of contemporary Sydney artist Lang Leav swings between the whimsical and woeful, expressing a complexity beneath its child-like facade.
Her imagination stretches across a variety of disciplines encompassing art, poetry and books. Frequently invited to exhibit at high profile exhibitions locally and overseas, she has since built up a loyal following of international fans. Her handcrafted book, Charlie’s Widow, was presented to iconic film director Tim Burton at the opening of his Wonderland exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
Lang is a recipient of The Qantas Spirit of Youth Award and was later granted a prestigious Churchill Fellowship. Her fashion label Akina has achieved critical and commercial success, stocked in key boutiques around Australia and later in cutting edge Harajuku, Japan.
She has completed shows in several cities including Santa Monica for the renowned Copro gallery; who have worked with artists such as Mark Ryden and Audrey Kawasaki. She was hand-picked to exhibit in the landmark ‘Playboy Redux’ curated by The Warhol Museum and Playboy Enterprises; alongside contemporary greats such as Gary Baseman and Tara McPherson.
Currently Lang is putting the finishing touches to her new illustrated poetry book. If you would like to go on the waiting list for a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
