From the Artist:
This piece was inspired by the sheer diversity of life in the marine world. I wanted to depict a variety of species of sea life to prove this point and wanted the viewer to be looking up at the subjects in a hopeful way. This piece was inspired by research I've done on how quickly marine protected areas can rebound when they are given the proper care and space to grow in a clean environment.
Charlie Hoesly is an illustrator, artist, and graphic designer originally from the North Shore of Massachusetts. Growing up on the ocean had a large impact on his appreciation of nature from a young age. Unsurprisingly, much of his work now focuses on marine life and landscapes and he believes that ocean conservation is of the utmost importance when it comes to the future of the planet. Charlie now lives in the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego and can rarely be found more than a few blocks from the sea. He works as a graphic designer, sells giclée art prints, and does custom digital illustration commissions.
