ThisIsWex is the moniker of Philadelphia based, multimedia artist and designer Beth Wexler. ThisIsWex creates work that exists at the intersection of editorial (motion) design, DIY ethos, and systematic experimentation. Often favoring the succinct, repetitive nature of animated gifs, she has developed an ever-evolving body of hypnotic work that ranges from geometric exploration, to cultural observation, to philosophical inquiry. Her primary goal is to create thought -provoking, clever, and sometimes humorous work that guides the viewer towards reflection of the self as well as the conditions of the world around them. Using social media as a primary delivery method is deliberate in its compliance of current trends of communication.
In other words, ThisIsWex makes drawings and animations, posts them online and hopes that they makes you think.
