Wyatt Hersey is a visual storyteller with a practice based in illustration, painting, design and muralism. Wyatt uses bright, simplified color palettes and a printmaker’s graphic sensibility to create work that is immediately striking and impactful. His work explores narratives of relational ecology, deep ecology, and ecological consciousness while instilling a sense of playfulness, hope, mutualism, and vitality in the viewer. His background as a wildlife biologist and nature connection mentor greatly informs his work as a visual artist, and as does his belief in art as an essential expression of the goodness of humanity.

“The designs I created for this collection are meant to convey a sense of playfulness and authenticity. Swimming is ultimately an act of embodiment and joy and I wanted the linework and colors to feel vibrant and lively in the hope that the designs would convey that energy. It’s so important for ALL of us to find activities that connect us to our beautiful living bodies and give us a sense of joy and freedom on a daily basis. Go swim, be weird, have fun!!”
