Bats Langley is one of three children, who grew up in the dark and perilous countryside of New England. He spent his youth surrounded by many eccentric pets and relatives, who greatly influence his work. When Mister Langley was six years old, he was given an honorable mention at the Putnam County Fair for his artistic crayon on construction paper opus, entitled "Grandma's Despair". Throughout his early childhood he acquired the tastes of literary greats like Chaucer, Wilde and Keats and to the music of composers Gershwin, Shubert and Debussy .
He received formal training at the Rhode Island School of Design in fine arts and has continued to refine his talents. He now lives outside the big city of Manhattan, where Mister Langley draws, paints, sculpts, writes, cooks and watches documentaries on migrations of birds and the lives of earthworms. Exclusively. He enjoys ghost stories, biology, medical curiosities, hoaxes, Dutch painting, museum visits, oddities, theater, fashion, old movies and collecting preserved skeletons of extinct animalia.
Mister Langley hopes you enjoy his work and please feel free to contact him.
