Alpine Art – a project to promote artists related to the Alps and their artworks – just launched and features the work of photo bosses Jerome Tanon and Carlos Blanchard, the artwork of the Pirates' Tobias Ludescher and more. Check it out...
"This project is way more than an online shop for illustrations, collaboration works and photo prints with a certain aspiration," say the crew behind the project. "With a diverse and selected assortment we invite you to become a part of this experiment. Alpine Art can be found at www.alpineart.org."
Some of the artists have deep roots in the early open-minded snowboard community. This inspirational environment united talented individuals in their common love for mountains and nature, and shaped who they are. They all represent different styles and approaches and meet the challenges to survive as young artist. Now they all appear jointly on this new platform.
There are 10 artists and photographers on Alpine Art currently. Among them is Tobias ‘Ludschi’ Ludescher, who is contributing both artwork and photography. Without him the project wouldn’t exist. He is the initiator and organizer of the Isolation Camps and knows that deceleration is fuelling creativity. He's been bringing together his creative friends since 2010 in various remote mountain huts to get to know each other, to draw and make music together – totally analogue. Therefore Alpine Art is a genuine project of his heart and serves as platform for the work of this artist network.
Ludschi adds: “Common challenges have always driven me more then focusing on the own ego. Working together on creating the Pirate Art Books (2005 – 2013) and its exhibitions to the Isolation Camps, the well being of the group has always been the focus. The logical next step with Alpine Art is another experiment, which I’m looking forward to. Finally the time is here to show our work and to tell our stories."
Carlos Blanchard from Spain, now based in Innsbruck, is one of the photographers represented on the site. His visual skills are unique and reflected in his images. Alongside him is Jerôme Tanon from Annecy, a photographer and filmmaker who is well-known for his extraordinary analogue photo developments. The South Tyrolean Lukas Goller is part of the illustrious artist line-up on Alpine Art. At the end of last year he had the honour to be part of the adidas showcase exhibition during Miami Art Week. Michael Hacker, originally from Vorarlberg, today based in Vienna, is a comic- and gig poster artist for impressive names like Queens of the Stone Age and Green Day, and has realised his latest project 'Pizzeria Disgusto’ with crowd funding.

Alpine Art will grow continuously – new artwork and new artists will be added regularly. Alpine Art is not only an online platform; it is also an organisation, which will realise exhibitions and more in the future.
