Rens Hensgens has been inspired by the wild since he was very young. He explains that “Leads” are linear cracks and form highways through the lands of ice. Predators are attracted to these deep blue lines in their pale environment, it is where their prey is present. Leads allow sea-mammals to surface and breathe. Humans face the extreme arctic environment by navigating submarines through the leads, parallel to its inhabitants.
Rens Hensgens has been inspired by the wild since he was very young. Now with a degree in Wildlife Management and a job conserving urban wildlife he finds it at his doorstep and continues to be inspired during his daily walks and fieldwork. Hensgens is reminded every day that the wild can be everywhere and that their carefreeness helps him to unwind. With art, he tries to depict the wild in their environment and how they interact, hopefully inspiring conservation for both.
