La Snow Art dell'artista Simon Beck | Collater.al Magazine

Simon Beck is one of the most important snow artist. He graduated in Engineering from Oxford University but decided later on to leave his office job in order to become a cartographer.

In December 2004, after a day of skiing, he got the idea to draw a star on the small frozen lake in front of his place. His sense for orientation in combination with his passion for outdoor and physical activities inspired him to complete a snow creation.

The day after, looking down from the ski lift; he was impressed by the result. After the next snowfall, he repeated the exercise by creating an even more complex drawing. Snow Art was born.

From Norway to Switzerland to Canada and France, Simon Beck’s works have characterised landscapes around the world during the winter season and attracted the attention of brands and skiers who have found works of land art alongside the slopes. The technique is simple, Beck walks in first person on the white mantle in spiked shoes, leaving his mark until the next snowfall or warmer sun arrives.

As you wait for snow again this winter, think about the field in which you will go and create your own work inspired by Simon Beck’s work.
