The expedition artist is a term for someone who is creatively working while traveling and exploring nature. Carol Wellart is a Czech illustrator, constantly on the road with her partner and photographer Paul Schlemmer. She’s inspired by everyday outside stuff. The mountain character is an often-repeated theme in her art, and she and Paul are both searching for new impulses in this enviroment. Exploring the world wilderness, studying animals and surviving in the Earth’s oldest reliefs brings Carol’s work to life.
Carol Wellart‘s image “Heartwood” is the cover art for our May 2017 stories.
