Originally from Lawrence, Kansas, Wyatt Carson (MICA BFA '23) works in stop-motion animation, printmaking, painting and poetry. Carson's art practice embraces experimentation, curiosity, and imperfection, and takes inspiration from 1970’s Soviet animation, American folk art, and German expressionism. 


Various exhibitions and festivals have included Carson’s work, most notably the Sweaty Eyeballs Animation Festival in Baltimore (Best of Baltimore Award) and the John Ruskin Prize in London (Kate Mason Prize For Innovation). 


Entities such as shadows, cars, nature, weather, and Mary (their cat) variously enact Carson's explorations of mental health, beauty, family, gender, and love. Carson's work is dedicated to finding the emotional roots of the things that catch their eye.
