Take a stroll through the Amazon with our newest Genius Series print, Chico! This adventurous print roars with rich greens, lush, oversized palm leaves and exotic animals. Conveying nature and the wild, this safari-inspired print is named after Brazilian environmentalist, Chico Mendes.
Growing up in the forest, Chico Mendes developed a love and respect for nature. From rubber tapping trees to campaigning for the preservation of the Amazon, Chico was a true conservation activist who made a difference in the environmental world, which unfortunately lead to his assassination in 1988. His hard work and dedication environment did not go unrecognized. A few of the many honors given in Chico's memory include: the Brazilian government declaring him "Patron of the Brazilian Environment," and The Chico Mendes Institute for Conservation of Biodiversity being named in his honor. Chico was a dedicated activist who gave his life for his work, and we're excited to now welcome him into the Hall of Genius.
"At first I thought I was fighting to save rubber trees, then I thought I was fighting to save the Amazon rainforest. Now I realize I am fighting for humanity." -Chico Mendes
Just like a butterfly, the newest Genius Series print, Patch, is intricate and ethereal. With a monochromatic color scheme, filled with different shades of Dazzle, Patch resembles a monarch's wings through a kaleidoscopic design. Influenced by the work of American Entomologist, Edith Patch, this graceful, captivating motif will take your little one to new heights.
When she was a child, Edith Patch won a contest for an essay on monarch butterflies. Passionate about bugs and ecology, Patch tried to get a job in entomology, but was repeatedly rejected because she was a woman. Through persistence and dedication, she was later hired by Charles Woods of the University of Maine, where she earned her master's degree, later completing her Ph.D. at Cornell University. In 1930, Patch was elected the first woman president of the Entomological Society of America, a time when few women were in the field. Throughout her long, devoted career, she never lost focus of her love for science and the natural world, which now lands her a spot in our Hall of Genius.

Osa Johnson was an American author, explorer, photographer, filmmaker and naturalist. With her husband, Martin Johnson, by her side, she explored and documented the unknown lands of Africa, South Pacific Islands and more. Together, they captivated the world with their discoveries, photography, films and books. In 1940, Osa published her best-seller, I Married Adventure, which was listed in the Best Books of the Decade, 1936-1945.
