Gray Wielebinski

Gray Wielebinski (b. 1991, Dallas) is an artist based between London and Los Angeles. In Wielebinski's expansive practice, incorporating video, performance, collage, installation, sculpture, and more, he explores the intersections of mythology, identity, gender, nationhood, and memory. Reconfiguring and transforming iconography and visual codes, his work seeks to navigate and question society's frameworks and belief systems. Wielebinski deftly confronts realities in order to imagine and propose alternatives.


Mythology weaves a strong thread throughout Wielebinski's works, he draws on both ancient and contemporary myths that exist in our daily lives. His interest in myth making stemmed from an upbringing in Dallas, Texas, which created a deep fascination with Americana, particularly the narratives that surround cowboys and sports. Wielebinski notes that Texas has a potent mythologizing of itself and a specific history and culture. He then moved to Los Angeles, California which has its own relationship to fantasy and myth making via Hollywood.

Wielebinski received a BA in Studio Art from (Pomona College, Claremont) followed by an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art (2018).
