Wesley Dale Ayers
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I’m a 28 year old artist with a decade of painting under my belt, and other creative interests along the way. After graduating high school in 2007, I continued to pursue art on my own as I was navigating my way through hopes and heartaches. I wrestled with life through painting and it became the trustworthy friend to confide in. Over the years, I’ve learned that the more successful pieces of mine are the honest pieces. The ones painted by a broken man to a broken audience. No one can connect to a machine or an illusion of a person. Creativity takes courage, and I hope it can be said that I had courage here.

I'm inspired by real life. And I try to escape to the mountains as often as I fast as I can.
Greetings fam, 

I wanted to update ya'll on one of the biggest life decisions I can make. I am legally changing my last name. I am nervous, insecure, but also confident that I must. Please check out my latest piece, "Sever Us" for an in depth explanation as well as my emotions on a canvas about this whole thing.

I am proud to re- introduce myself to the world as,

52 Hertz
52 Hertz
Oil painting
February 2014

Here is a story of loneliness to last for the ages. A story of hopelessness and hopefulness – told in song – from a solitary creature of the sea that has managed to reach a young man landlocked in the midwest. The 52 Hertz whale sings a song for no one, as the frequency that he sings is higher than that of his own kind, and they cannot hear it. This forces a loneliness upon him as vast as the ocean itself, and his cry for love and companionship echoes on through ocean walls with no response.

Since his initial discovery in 1989, a group of scientists have been tracking with him, peering into his life, and listening in. And he’s still singing. And he’s still on his own. Whether we’ve tapped into it or not, we all have a longing to be seen, to be heard, and to be known, and many of us have gone through our own lives feeling unheard. Whether it’s the cards we are dealt, or our own self preservation, loneliness threads across humanity composing one epic ballad. We all have our “own song”, that in the end, can only fully be heard by God. He lends the ear of heaven towards us, peering into our lives, listening in. 

All the more, let us sing.


Very honored and privileged to have this featured in this amazing article, and to be asked for a brief quote on it.
