The artwork for this custom graphic was inspired from "Jumbo Wild" a movie which addressed a decades-long battle between ski area development and conservation in an area of British Columbia. With the artists permission to use this image, the idea became one with the transition from bear to mountains to skis. The artist, Andreas Lie, thought this was a great idea for an original Wagner Custom top-sheet!
Lie’s images reflect a deep appreciation for nature and the wildlife that inhabits the wilderness near his home. He is fortunate to live in a place surrounded by majestic mountains and wild spaces, which are undoubtedly an inexhaustible source of inspiration for him in his work. His unique images typically feature a single animal, set in sharp contrast to the negative space that surrounds it, and filled with images of their natural habitats. Contained within the stark shape of the animal you’ll find forest scenes, mountains, water, and other scenic vistas that are then blended seamlessly with the texture of the animal’s fur or feathers, as the case may be. - The Mountain (2015)
