Painting: Jon Langford

You may know Jon Langford as the founding member of British punk group The Mekons or perhaps alt country bands The Pine Valley Cosmonauts or The Waco Brothers – or you may not know him from Adam. When he’s not playing music, he’s painting these memorials to famous and forgotten country stars. Painted on board or etched copper plates his work is very recognizable, very beautiful and very cool. Jon continues to perform and paint and show his work mostly in his adopted home town of Chicago (originally from Wales) and around the world.
