10 YEARS OF ORIGINAL ARTWORK Return To Nature

“AS A CO-FOUNDER, ARTIST AND ART DIRECTOR FOR ICELANTIC SKIS I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP CREATE THE ARTISTIC STORY THROUGH ANNUAL THEMES, SUPPORTING THE DYNAMIC NATURE OF ART AT ICELANTIC. MY GOAL IS TO CREATE AND MAINTAIN AN ENVIRONMENT THAT SUPPORTS THE MULTIPLE FACETS OF ICELANTIC: COMMUNITY, LIFESTYLE AND THE IDEA OF EVOLVING THE HUMAN EXISTENCE THROUGH AN APPRECIATION OF THE ARTS, GOOD BUSINESS PRACTICES, AND A CONNECTION WITH NATURE.
BEING ABLE TO INJECT MY ARTWORK AND IDEAS THROUGH ICELANTIC SKIS INTO MOUNTAIN CULTURES AROUND THE WORLD HAS BEEN BOTH AN HONOR AND A PRIVILEGE. WORKING WITH PEOPLE I BELIEVE IN IS WHAT MAKES IT SO MAGICAL. IT’S THAT HUMAN CONNECTION TO ART THAT INSPIRES ME TO CONTINUE LIVING A LIFE CREATING, LOVING, EXPLORING, LEARNING AND FOLLOWING MY INSTINCTS.” – Travis Parr

ONE DEGREE CELSIUS One Degree Celsius

ONE DEGREE CELSIUS IS A TEMPERATURE OF CHANGE – A MOMENT WHEN WATER MOLECULES BEGIN TO CRYSTALIZE INTO SNOW AND ICE. THIS TRANSFORMATION CREATES A WORLD WE LOVE – ONE OF SNOWY MOUNTAINS, UNTRACKED LINES AND GRAND ADVENTURE. FOR US, IT ALSO REPRESENTS A SPIRIT OF EXPLORATION, INNOVATION AND THE POTENTIAL THAT DRIVES US TO BE WHO WE ARE AND DO WHAT WE DO.
