Why every ski trail map looks the same #ArtTuesday

2 why every ski trail map looks the same

Artist James Niehues has hand-painted nearly 200 ski maps in his 30-year career. Via Fast Company

If you’ve been skiing, chances are you’re very familiar with the work of one particular artist. And no, this artist isn’t behind that tacky art you always see in ski cabins.

Since 1988, James Niehues has hand-painted 255 trail maps for 175 ski mountains all over the world. His work is immediately recognizable–the watercolor paintings beautifully illustrate each run, with tiny snow-capped trees surrounding them. A grand, pastoral view of the mountain’s neighbors tops off each splendid landscape painting. Now, all of his work will be available in an Kickstarter-funded eponymous coffee-table book called The Man Behind the Map.
