Elysium – Artists for the Arctic is a project that draws upon the world’s finest artists to capture the panorama, flora and fauna of the northern polar region in a perspective no one has seen before. This region is regarded as one of the most enchanting wilderness regions of our planet, yet volatile and under severe threat from the warming of the world’s climate. This production promises the most awesome and most stunning visual interpretation ever seen of the Arctic. If a picture is worth a thousand words, the imageries of the Elysium Artists team will inspire greater appreciation and love for Arctic and draw about greater attention to the impact of climate change.
Join the principal team comprising of Dr Sylvia Earle, David Doubilet, Jennifer Hayes, Ernie Brooks, Michael AW, Göran Ehlmé, Amos Nachoum and Leandro Blanco in a mission to capture the sights, sounds and splendour of the enchanting Arctic, on August 2015, into an exquisite book, film and exhibitions in eight major cities.
The benchmark expedition starts from Longyearbyen to North Spitsbergen, North and East Greenland and end in Iceland. Besides panoramas of glaciers, icebergs and snowy mountains, imagery focus will also be polar bears, walruses, belugas, narwals, Arctic foxes, auks, snowy owls, muskoxen, Arctic hares, Fins and Blue whales.
