About Us

Named after the enigmatic character driving its vision, Insomnius is an art brand and a way of seeing. A diagnosis and a cure. Deeply troubled by climate change, Insomnius, the character, suffers from both perpetual exhaustion and a chronic compulsion to create. His only respite from these two competing forces comes in the form of an ongoing invitation to explore perception itself.

Insomnius offers a unique set of conduits for introspection and contemplation, synthesis and species survival. We invite individuals to delve into the depths of their own thoughts and question what they see, what they don't see, and why. Our narrative-driven art experience is also a pathway to environmental justice. Ten percent of all sales will go directly to nonprofits fighting climate change.

We offer our customers more than striking imagery. We offer our artists more than walls. We throw down a gauntlet. We issue a challenge.
