About Wes Coke Designs
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be an artist. Even during the years I dreamed of playing professional sports, I wanted to do both. While those dreams of elite athleticism crashed and died, art stuck. In 2003, I finished studying bronze sculpture at the University of North Texas then life happened. Art was no longer a priority and while ideas were always running through my mind, I began a career and stopped creating.
In February 2017, nearly 15 years after attending my last class, I had an idea that finally came to fruition. I designed and created a 24 inch, 56 lb wooden interpretation of the Death Star, pictured above. After receiving significant positive feedback on social media, I thought, "This could be a thing." Another dream of mine was being my own boss so in April of that year, Wes Coke Designs was established.
Since this began, I've shipped my work to countries on 6 of the 7 continents. (Antarctica, what are you waiting on?) My 3 dimensional works have been created using the following materials: wood, clay, fiberglass, styrofoam, plastic, urethane rubber, latex rubber, and epoxy. My 2 dimensional works include acrylic paints, charcoal, pastels, ink and pencil.
If you have any ideas you'd like painted/sculpted/somehow created, let's talk and make it happen. I'm always looking for new projects and I'm still chasing that Death Star.
