Elevation is a collection of 9 artworks inspired by the famous mountains of Kazakhstan. Belukha, Khan Tengri and Pik Talgar are places we only dream of, engraved in Kazakh spirit and history. It is an open invitation to travel and explore, and the reason behind the artist s choice to focus on the natural element, to showcase the simplicity and beauty of this incredible country.
The artist draws a vector line of each mountain from plan elevation curves, adding a filter to create an abstract drawing effect like a finger print. The result is elegant and minimal, and is a limited signed series printed with pigmented inks on pure rag Fine Art paper.
