About The Artwork

Follow the twists and turns of the Hubris Tree, a riot of blooming tropical foliage and luscious fruits. This wildly imaginative watercolour painting transports the viewer to the Garden of Eden, placing them at the foot of the Tree of Knowledge. In creator Sam Wilde's retelling of this classic story, we see the world through the eyes of Eve. A heroine who understood that paradise was artificial and that the only way to truly embody her real-self was to choose autonomy and to leave Eden. Inspired by the works of Austrian-born textile designer Josef Frank, and his iconic patterns Vegetable Tree and Hawaii.

Sam Wilde positions his practice at the intersection of visual art and surface design and is best known for storytelling through his signature worldbuilding approach to pattern creation. Sam founded the luxury British interiors, fashion and homeware brand Vespertine, to not only to enrich our bodies, homes and spaces with worlds depicting unabashed warmth and personality. But also to empower the viewer through each pattern’s conceptual message, and evoke in them a sense of childhood wonderment for the epics hidden within. Sam considers the surfaces he creates as their own visually escapist worlds. Great consideration is taken so that each and every element within these worlds builds to form a logically cohesive scene, filled to the brim with nuanced symbolism and immersive detail.
