Wild Pulp





Wild Pulp was founded by C. Owen Smith in 2009 in New York City. He studied at Columbus College of Art & Design and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia and traveled extensively, now living in Northeast Ohio.

These animal prints are from the series called "North American Animals In Bark', inspired by John Muir’s quote, “when we tug at a single thing in nature, we find it attached to the rest of the world.” The animals silhouettes are created spontaneously, he photographs barks of specific tree species through hand-cut paper templates, looking for the animal's spirit reflected in the world of flora that surround them.
