What Is The Wanderlust Collective?

There is a painting by Caspar David Friedricht that speaks volumes on wanderlust and was a huge inspiration to me in forming this collective. The painting is titled “The Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog”. It shows a man overlooking a beautiful scene of mountains and cliffs. I love this piece because it shows a moment of self-reflection, inspiration, and overcoming obstacles.
