Matt Willey

Matt Willey is an artist with a love for honeybees. He's the founder of The Good of the Hive Initiative, a global art project with a radical mission of bringing people together through art, bees and conservation. The bee and her hive are his symbol, but the project is about much more than bees.

Matt shares his background as an artist and why he's now painting 50,000 honeybees in murals around the world. Matt's mural paintings convey a story much bigger than honeybees and he explains the existing relationship with them. 

And what does this all mean to Matt personally as this is unfolding? Find out what's new at The Good of the Hive and his continued mission, film, book, more community engagement, and even adding species. 

"My mission is to get people curious again about everything. Not just pollinators, it's about each other." 

Most importantly, Matt shares ideas on how we can all  make a difference.
