    Jon Langford is a founding member of legendary British rock band the Mekons. A native of South Wales, Langford now lives in Chicago. He continues to play with the Mekons, as well as Chicago band the Waco Brothers. His multi-layered paintings take imagery from old country music publicity photos and sheet music and envelope them in a haze of ironic nostalgia. He describes his painting technique thusly: "Long process of layering, scraping, minute attention to detail. Basically, I create a very unstable surface with acrylics and pastel on top of each other and work on top of that with Sharpies, felt pens, white out, gunk, snot and whatever comes to hand."
