Wesley is currently best known for his personal photography work & art-series in the fine-art / still-life genre, mostly working around food.
Through a graphic approach and elaborately staged compositions, his personal work offers the viewer a different perspective on what we eat –
utilising dramatic lighting, minimal sets and an unsaturated colour palette, what gives his images a very aesthetic appearance.
In the years he developed a signature style that you can describe as conceptual, painterly, images, often in square formats with sometimes floating objects.
