Gordy Wright is an illustrator and printmaker working from his studio in Bristol, UK. He graduated with a first class degree in illustration from the University of the West of England (UWE) in 2014.

He loves all things nature themed and enjoys being outside whether it be exploring the countryside, riding his bicycle or just watching birds in his garden.

Wright’s illustrations of sharks swimming through their watery habitats provide lots of details to observe; the creatures’ rounded, cartoonlike eyes imbue them with personality.
