Inspired largely by the landscape around him, JW Bowen accentuates the unique forms, textures and patterns found in natural elements with highly processed counterparts. By fusing organic matter with man-made materials, JW Bowen creates distinct, otherworldly pieces that challenge the relationship between the natural world and man's incessant need to manipulate it. 
JW (Wes) Bowen earned his BFA from Jacksonville State University, and it was there that he developed a passion for mixed media art. Currently residing in Tuscaloosa, AL, he is pursruing additional education in welding and can often be found in his studio or kayaking the Black Warrior river.
