Corey Wesley has always had a passion for art. As a young boy growing up in New York City in the early 1980s, he was fascinated by the graffiti he saw on the subway trains. This early exposure to street art sparked a love for art that has been a constant inspiration in his life.
Growing up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, he noticed that street art was often overlooked and undervalued, but he believed in the power of this art form to inspire and uplift communities. He started Milton Wes Art in Harlem and it has been thriving since then. He wants to share the beauty and creativity of street art with as many people as possible, and through his business he is able to do just that. He is constantly motivated and encouraged by the way art can change people's lives for the better.
In addition to his business acumen, Wesley is an incredibly talented artist known for his captivating t-shirt designs, which have been worn by celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg and Kendra Wilkinson.
Wesley's career has been the subject of numerous features in a variety of publications, including Harlem World Magazine, The Harlem Times, DZI - The Voice, Sincerely Syreeta, 123PR, Faith Girl, Edge Media, HX Magazine, and a handful of others.
As our chief curator, he has made it his mission to bring art to the world and make it accessible to everyone.
