Wild Wes Adkins is passionate about art & vehicles. Striving for excellence in every project, he has achieved some incredible goals. His career started early. As a teenager Wes worked with his father learning the basics of body & custom paintwork. Immediately putting his talents to use he began pinstriping, lettering and painting cars at only age 14.
After graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Wes established Wild Wes Paintworks in 1994. Perfecting his skills and pushing limits, his success and involvement with SEMA lead him to Las Vegas in 2005 where he opened Sin City Kustomz. With a crew of talented employees they made a huge mark in the custom building scene getting noticed by many magazines, television shows and clients. After achieving goals, in 2008 the decision was made to relocate Wild Wes Paintworks back to Ohio.
Some career highlights include clients such as Ford Motor Company, Toby Keith, Harley-Davidson, Castrol, DuPont and Mickey Thompson Tires. Television appearances include a feature on Spike TV's Power Block, Truck U, Car Crazy, Mtv and filmig a commercial with Ford for a Wild Wes painted PBR sweepstakes truck.
Some other outstanding accomplishments are over 100 magazine features on vehicles Wes has painted or built. Awards such as Henry Ford's "Past Forward" Award & "Outstanding Muscle car of Detroit Autorama", Ford Design Award at SEMA Show, Las Vegas.
Wes continues to perfect his skills and push design limits on a daily basis with each new project.
